US President Barack Obama has urged Afghan leader Hamid Karzai to write a new chapter in governing Afghanistan, after the disputed presidential poll. In a congratulatory message President Obama asked President Karzai to intensify efforts to eradicate corruption.

He was speaking after the Afghan President was declared winner of the August’s fraud-marred election. Earlier, poll officials scrapped a planned run-off following the withdrawal of President Karzai’s challenger Dr. Abdullah Abdullah

President Obama described the poll as messy but stressed that the final outcome was in accordance with Afghan law.
