    Afghanistan is still awaiting the official results of the presidential election held on August 20, amidst thousands of reports of voter fraud.

    But as violence persists will the outcome of the vote really affect everyday Afghans struggling to survive?

    Turnout in the election was reportedly low, especially in the country's southern provinces where the Taliban remains strong.

    This year is already the deadliest of the eight-year campaign against the Taliban with August the deadliest month for US troops fighting there.
