Afghan elections: Your views

Afghan President Hamid Karzai

People in Afghanistan will be voting on 20 August to elect a new president.

The incumbent, President Hamid Karzai, is seeking another term in office and is facing challenges from 40 other candidates.

Analysts say he is the clear front-runner, even though his reputation has been damaged by his failure to tackle corruption and the worsening conflict with the Taliban.

If you are in Afghanistan and going to vote, we would like to hear from you.

Thank you for your comments.
