Afghanistan's landmark elections this week were generally good and fair, but not free in some parts of the country due to violence and intimidation, the chief EU election observer said on Saturday.

"Free was not the case in some parts of the territory due to terror installed," EU chief election observer Philippe Morillon told reporters.

"Fair -- generally what we have observed was considered by our observers with our methodology good and fair," he added, stressing it was still early days in assessing the presidential and provincial council elections.
