The Constitution of Afghanistan guarantees the rights of its citizens to elect and be elected, and provides for the establishment of an Independent Election Commission (IEC) to administer and supervise elections in the country. However, the Constitution does not stipulate any details regarding the framework and responsibilities of the IEC, including the mechanisms for resolving election complaints. Such details should rather be legislated.
