Afghanistan's Elections

It's worth noting that yesterday Afghanistan held its first Parliamentary elections since 1969, with little violence. I wouldn't worry so much about the low turnout - Parliamentary contests are always different from those for a head of state, and I suspect that even in a place like Afghanistan the President is much more well known than the vast array of local candidates.
