THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2014-04-04

The scramble for Afghanistan - Will the election end an era of uncertainty?

Saturday's presidential election in Afghanistan certainly signals change. With the outgoing Hamid Karzai out of the running and US-led forces drawing down you could say there's a mix of anticipation and foreboding. And there's no denying the US drawdown has further heightened the weight of regional players in this election, neighbours who've all stepped up aid to Afghanistan as they jostle for influence.

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Diaraye Bah

By François PICARD

Our guests

Assad OMER

Ambassador of Afghanistan in France

Alissa Johannsen RUBIN

New York Times Bureau Chief in Paris
