SHOTLIST:POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLYKabul, Afghanistan - July 12, 20141. Mid tracking shot of Secretary of State John Kerry leaving car walking into meeting2. Tight shot of Kerry and Karzai speaking with one another at meetingSTORYLINE:Afghanistan's two rival candidates reached a breakthrough agreement Saturday to a complete audit of their contested presidential election and, whoever the victor, a national unity government.The deal brokered by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry offers a path out of what threatened to be a debilitating political crisis for Afghanistan, with both candidates claiming victory and talking of setting up competing governments.Such a scenario could have dangerously split the fragile country's government and security forces at a time the U.S. is pulling out most of its troops and the Taliban continues to wage a fierce insurgency.Instead, former Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani and former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah consented to abide by a 100 percent, internationally supervised audit of all 8 million ballots in the presidential election and a national unity government once the results are announced.The audit is expected to take a "number of weeks" and would begin with the ballot boxes in Kabul. Ballot boxes from the provinces are to flown by helicopter to the capital by U.S. and international forces and examined on rolling basis. Observers from each campaign as well as international observers will be involved in the oversight of the review, and the candidate with the most votes would be declared the winner and become president.Both candidates agreed to respect the result, and the winner would immediately form a government of national unity. The inauguration, which had been scheduled for Aug. 2, would be postponed.
