Supporters of Afghan presidential candidate Ashraf Ghani celebrate in the street after the Independent Election Commission (IEC) announced preliminary results in Kabul July 7, 2014. Afghanistan declared former World Bank official Ghani the winner of last month's presidential election run-off on Monday on preliminary results that threaten to split the country along ethnic lines. The IEC said Ghani won the June 14 second round with 56.44 percent of the vote, according to preliminary results. The tally might still change, however, when the final official numbers come out on July 22. REUTERS/Omar Sobhani (AFGHANISTAN - Tags: POLITICS ELECTIONS)

People walk past a picture of Afghan President Hamid Karzai on a street in Kabul June 26, 2014. As thousands of Afghans poured into the streets of Kabul on June 27, 2014 to protest over the impasse in their country's presidential election, there was little doubt who they held responsible for the mess - outgoing President Karzai. No one has provided any hard evidence that the protesters are right, but even within Karzai's family and inner circle, many believe the president quietly engineered the electoral debacle to keep his hands on the levers of power.
