This Week's Program:

AFGHANISTAN  ELECTIONS
Afghanistan's Presidential vote is being hailed as a success, with seven million voters braving Taliban threats to go to the polls.  But Afghans say the true success of the election lies with the candidates accepting the final results.  Who will emerge as the next President and how will this election shape Kabul's relations with NATO and the United States?  That's next ON THE LINE.
