Elections were held in Afghanistan in September, 1965. Women voted for the first time in Afghan elections. Several unofficial parties ran candidates with beliefs ranging from fundamentalist Islam to far left. Turnout was very low, leading to the vocal predominance of Kabul's radicals. This first elected assembly met on October 14 and eleven days later dissident leftist students, dissatisfied with the newly appointed cabinet, disrupted the meetings and rioting ensued. Prime MinisterMohammad Yusuf resigned on October 29 and the king appointed Mohammad Hashim Maiwandwal to form a cabinet, which was confirmed on November 2.
