US Secretary of State John Kerry (R) greets Afghanistan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah (2L) with his vice-presidential candidates, Mohammad Kahn (L) and Mohammed Mohaquiq (2R) at the US Embassy in Kabul on July 11, 2014US Secretary of State John Kerry was Saturday to hold a second day of talks with Afghanistan's feuding presidential hopefuls, seeking a deal to "clean up the tally" after disputed elections. Despite back-to-back meetings on Friday with rivals Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani and other officials that stretched deep into the night, US officials said an accord was not yet on the table. The deadlock over last month's run-off vote to succeed outgoing President Hamid Karzai has plunged Afghanistan into crisis and dented US hopes of a smooth transfer of power as Washington seeks to withdraw all its troops by late 2016. Under a proposal put forward by the United Nations, the country's elections commission would audit ballot boxes from just over 8,000 polling stations where suspicions of ballot-stuffing have been raised.
