The first post-Taliban parliamentary elections that were scheduled to take place in Afghanistan have been postponed due to security and logistical concerns. The elections scheduled to take place in May could be delayed by six months or more, reports BBC News.

Security continues to be a major obstacle to the rebuilding of democracy and reconstruction of the country.
