New President for Afghanistan

Today the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan named Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai as the winner and the next president of Afghanistan. President-elect Ghani is expected to be sworn in within a week, and the United States hopes he will be quick to do what outgoing President Hamid Karzai has refused to do and sign a bilateral agreement allowing some troops to remain in Afghanistan after 2014. #PopNews
