NEW DELHI — Afghanistan's ruling People's Democratic Party will relinquish power if it is rejected in national elections, the Afghan ambassador to India, Abdul Samad Azhar, said Friday. He declined to say how soon elections would be held.

Speaking at a news conference at the Afghan Embassy here, Azhar said the recent call by the Kabul government for national reconciliation was "so that all those who are interested and have a platform can help to build the new Afghanistan."
