Ticker: Afghanistan elections, danger at the polls

Global for menews ticker


Today’s freelance story ticker

Afternoon, bloggers.

A quick little ticker from the Global for me main website today. Although it’s about a month from now, we’re looking ahead to the Afghanistan presidential election.

Kit of the GFM Team pitched the following on our main website:

Will Afghanistan make it to the polls? by Jerome Starkey

KABUL, Afghanistan – On the 20th of August 2009, the Afghani people head to the polls in order to elect their President. However deteriorating security, with July one of the bloodiest months of the campaign so far, is raising concerns that the elections which have already been delayed once, may not be able to take place as scheduled. Read on.

Does this sound like an interesting story to you? Let GFM know, and we’ll e-mail Jerome. Don’t hesitate to throw in your two cents on what else you’d like to see from Afghanistan, and what format you’d like to see the report produced in.

Jump over to our Exclusives blog page to see what GFM followers have accomplished in the past with crowd funded journalism.

And if you’d like to do a little research on Jerome as a correspondent, head over to his Global Radio News profile as well as his YouTube channel.

Cheers! The GFM Team continues to work hard to connect you to the reporter behind the news desk. Special thanks to Jerome for working hard in the field in Afghanistan. Be careful, mate.

Till tomorrow,

Kim
