Final results of the Afghan presidential election held on Aug. 20 will be announced within the next 10 days, a local newspaper quoted chief electoral officer Daud Ali Najafi as saying on Saturday.

"The fate of the presidential election whether it goes for the second round will be cleared within the next 10 days," according to daily 8 Subh.

"If there is need for the runoff it will be held within one month," Najafi said.

Afghanistan's second presidential election in the country marked by fraud and according to Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) it had received more than 2,700 complaints and over 700 of them are so serious that can affect the election's result.

In the preliminary result announced on Sept. 17, President Hamid Karzai stood at first by bagging 54.6 percent of the votes, followed by Abdullah who secured 28 percent of the ballots.

The UN-based Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) on Friday announced a partial vote recount from polling stations with suspected of fraud so as to accelerate the recounting process to reach a final result.
