Afghan anti-corruption chief keen to run in presidential elections

Azizolalh Ludin, the head of High Office of Oversight and Administrative Corruption (HOO), is a candidate for the next presidential elections in Afghanistan.

Although Mr Ludin has not explicitly announced his candidature, he has told Arman-e Melli that a number of MPs, Senators and well-known figures have asked him to run in the elections for his good background and honesty, but what Mr Ludin considers as a problem for achieving this goal is his poor economy and a lack of people’s support.

While Mr Ludin has a higher education and transparent working background, he says he enjoys the support of Afghan expats, and believes that having a good economic status and the people’s support are must to become the president.
