U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Afghanistan on Thursday for his second visit in under a month to push a deal between the country's two presidential candidates on how to share power after an audit of a disputed election is complete.Shortly after arriving in Kabul, Kerry held separate meetings with Ghani and Abdullah at the U.S. compound to drive forward the deal.He is expected to meet again with each of the candidates on Friday, and separately with President Hamid Karzai at the presidential palace, before a news conference.Under the deal agreed verbally during Kerry's last visit, the winning candidate will take the role of president and form a government of national unity, while the loser will assume the position of chief executive.
