The internet campaign of an Afghan Presidential candidate

Cross-posted from The Wardman Wire:

With only around 1.5% of the population having access to the internet, it may look as if the role for online campaigning in the next Afghanistani Presidential election is rather limited. At least one candidate though is hoping to demonstrate otherwise in the run-up to voting on 20 August, with a second round if necessary about six weeks later.

That candidate is Ashraf Ghani, who is seen as one of the main possible challengers to the incumbent, President Hamid Karzai. He was previously Karzai’s finance minister.

Ghani has recently launched his multilingual website at http://ashrafghani.af/along with YouTube and Twitter
