Abdullah threatens to pull out of the Afgan election

KABUL--Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah threatened Tuesday to withdraw from the disputed election, a move that could wreck U.N. efforts to rescue the country's first democratic transfer of power.

To end the impasse, a deal was brokered for an audit of all eight million votes to remove fraudulent ballots, and for the formation of a national unity government under whoever becomes the next president.

“If they accept our demands by tomorrow morning we will continue the process. If not, we will withdraw from the process and consider it finished,” Fazel Ahmad Manawi, a senior member of Abdullah's campaign team, told reporters.
