Taliban has threatened Afghans to not participate in Afghanistan presidential election.

MojNews-The Taliban warned Afghans Tuesday to keep away from election rallies and ordered its fighters to "stand against" the planned Afghanistan presidential election September vote.

The Taliban and other insurgent groups conducted frequent attacks during previous elections, and this year's campaign season has already been rocked by deadly violence.

The presidential election is currently slated for September 28, but has got off to a lacklustre start and some candidates are yet to launch their campaigns.

Many observers think the poll will be postponed again -- it has already been pushed back twice this year -- to create space for a peace deal to be finalised between The US and the Taliban.

In their message, the Taliban said fighters should "stand against this theatrical and sham of a process to their full capabilities" -- a clear instruction to conduct attacks.
