Afghanistan's main opposition leader pledged yesterday to pursue his reform agenda from outside the government in spite of an offer by President Hamid Karzai to work with his opponents after winning the country's disputed elections. Abdullah Abdullah, who withdrew from a planned run-off, said the decision by the Independent Election Commission to grant Mr Karzai another five-year term was illegal. But Mr Abdullah did not say he would challenge the ruling.
