In the latest terror attack, at least 13 people have been killed in a suicide attack on an Afghan election campaign rally on Tuesday ahead of this month’s legislative vote.

More than 40 other people were reportedly wounded when the militant blew himself up among supporters of candidate, Abdul Nasir Mohmmand, in the Kama district of the eastern province of Nangarhar, provincial governor spokesman, Ataullah Khogyani, said.

The attack is the first suicide assault since campaigns officially started last Friday for the parliamentary elections, preparations for which have already been marred by bloody violence.

Meanwhile, the vote for the lower house of parliament has been scheduled for October 20, after it was delayed by more than three years, and is seen as a test for the presidential elections that will take place in April. New government measures hope to put an end to the previous issues they have faced.

With election fraud now being a criminal offence, voting stations will be placed in public buildings and monitored as a new advanced voting system will be used.

However, the Taliban and the Islamic State group have urged a boycott of the vote for the parliamentary elections due for October 20.
