On Saturday the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, said a decision by Abdullah to pull out would not affect the vote's legitimacy.
Waheed Omar, Karzai's campaign spokesman, said the "election has to go ahead and the people of Afghanistan have to be given the right to vote".His view was echoed by the IEC chairman, Azizullah Ludin, who said "there was no alternative under the law" to a second round.
