"Afghanistan's election commission on Sunday announced the expulsion of nine lawmakers because of allegations of vote fraud, an apparent attempt to bring an end to months of turmoil over last year's fraud-tainted parliamentary election. The controversy had severely hampered the Afghan government's operations at a time when the international community was looking to President Hamid Karzai's administration to shoulder more responsibility for governance of the country."
