Four parliamentary panels elected
Commissions on judicial affairs, Kuchis, central investigation and parliamentary immunity and incentives were elected through a secret ballot.
Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi said members of the rest of panels, which had some problems, would be elected on Tuesday.
He said there was no nomination for some parliamentary commissions, while a large number of lawmakers wanted to be part of others.
Twenty-nine MPs, including Abur Rab Rasoul Sayyaf and former speaker Yunus Qanuni, want to join the Wolesi Jirga's Foreign Affairs Commission, which should have a maximum of 19 members.
Another 37 lawmakers have applied for the 22-member Internal Security Commission.
Interestingly, no one wants to be part of the Commission on Disabled and Martyr Affairs. There is only one nomination for the women's affairs panel.
A lawmaker from northern Badakhshan province, Fauzia Kofi, criticised the large number of commissions, suggesting some panels with similar duties should be merged.
But her suggestion was rejected by MP from western Herat province, Qazi Nazeer Hanfi, who said the commissions played a key role in running house affairs, and there should be no changes in the number of their members.
