close contest for the post of the President of Afghanistan lasted from April 2014, when it was held the first round of elections.Its results are recognized controversial then, and was declared the second round, the results of which again brought a clear answer to the question - who was elected President of the country.

Election results



Almost a month after the second round of elections, the political life of Afghanistan is in danger of deadlock, the output of which has been found as a result of the agreements, with the mediation of the UN and the United States.In order to avoid collisions of radical, political opponents finally came to an agreement in which the former finance minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, a prominent intellectual, and a former official of the World Ban
k, became President of Afghanistan.He will be responsible for strategic functions.Former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah, the education ophthalmologist, was the Executive Director of the government (nominally the post of prime minister in Afghanistan is absent).His responsibilities will include the daily problems of the country.Now, these two will have to solve a lot of problems, and of all the existing three main:

- withdrawal of American troops from the country, which should be completed before the end of December 2014;
- the resumption of talks with the "Taliban", which, thanks largely to the amnesty declared by the previous president, Hamid Karzai, once again strengthened its position;
- economic plight.

immediate prospects



President Ghani still being at the post of Minister of Finance has established himself as a technocrat with a clear vision of the implementation of the planned projects for social and economic renewal of the country.The sooner they can be started, the better for Afghanistan.But if the former rivals will actually be able to work together, despite all the irreconcilable contradictions, Afghanistan may be able to avoid the economic catastrophe that could erupt if the country will cease to subsidize Western allies.It is obvious that this bleak prospect, and forced them to deny their ambitions and agree to the proposed option of running the country.

Further, some political analysts expect from the new president appeals to NATO countries to suspend the withdrawal until at least the end of 2016.Even taking into account the fact that this is contrary to the statement of the movement "Taliban", addressed to the participants of the NATO summit, which was held in September 2014 in the UK.In it, the Taliban announced that all the country's problems, they decide to strip their own.Following the discussion, the leaders of 28 NATO member countries and officials from 27 other states have seen fit to stop the military mission, and only to send military advisers to Afghanistan, but the final decision will be announced after the appeal of the new President of the country.

It should be noted that the announced earlier by President Hamid Karzai amnesty carried them through a truce, allowed to go free as the sympathetic, but not active members of the movement, and a number of ringleaders of the movement "Taliban", supported by Pakistan, and it has destabilized the situationin the country, especially in its northern provinces, because in this way the Taliban are returning to areas from which they were expelled.

If Ghani and Abdullah, and even more so of their supporters, will not sabotage the initiatives of each other - especially in the field, in the province - and indeed combine their efforts, they can give a real chance to Afghanistan to withdraw from the chaos and violence thatcharacterize the life of this country for many years.
