After a prolonged electoral stalemate, presidential candidates Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai finally signed the National Unity Government agreement at the Presidential Palace on Sunday noon.
President Hamid Karzai, prominent political figures and members of both electoral teams were present at the ceremony.
Speaking at the event, President Karzai congratulated the candidates on signing the agreement, calling it an "Afghan agreement."
"We hope that you [the candidates] can continue the things that the current government started," Karzai added.
This is while the Independent Election Commission (IEC) officials will announce the final election results later today. Reports indicate that the announcement will not declare any "winners or losers."
