Afghan president says he wants people from "all parts of the country" in his government
Amir Shah, Heidi Vogt
"KABUL (AP) Afghanistan's president reached out to his opponents Tuesday, saying that he will welcome opponents into his government and promising reforms to root out corruption that has undermined trust in his administration. "President Hamid Karzai spoke a day after he was declared victor of an election so marred by fraud that his opponent dropped out because he said a planned runoff vote could not be free and fair. Election officials proclaimed Karzai winner by default. "The Taliban claimed their own victory shortly before Karzai started speaking, saying that the canceled runoff election showed their efforts to derail the vote with threats and attacks were successful."
