Karzai to be sworn in on November 19


Afghan President Hamid Karzai will be sworn in for a second term on November 19, an official said on Wednesday, after being returned to power despite a fraud-tainted poll in which more than a quarter of his votes were invalidated. “On the November 19, we will have a swearing-in ceremony of the president and a commission, led by the Minister of Defence, will lead this inauguration ceremony,” a ministry spokesman said.
