Karzai to seek reelection

August 20, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

President Hamid Karzai plans to seek reelection next year, saying he hasn't finished his job.

In a candid acknowledgement of some failures after four years in office, Karzai said Afghanistan did not yet have a functioning government, corruption remains rampant and the Afghan people "still suffer massively" in the fight against terrorism.

"So I have a job to do, a job to complete. In that sense, yes, I would like to run," Karzai said in an interview in the presidential palace in Kabul.
