KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai has finalised and dispatched to the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs a list of his cabinet picks, the Presidential Palace said on Wednesday.

The seven ministers’ names were sent by the administrative affairs department after being approved by the president, a spokesman for Karzai said.

Emal Faizi told Pajhwok Afghan News the nominees would soon appear before the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon, or the lower house of Parliament, for a vote of confidence.

Unconfirmed reports say Wais Barmak has been nominated as ministry of rehabilitation and rural development, Obaidullah Obaid as public healthinfo-icon minister, Obaidullah Rahim as higher educationinfo-icon minister and Ghulam Jilani Popal as transport and public aviation minister.

However, the presidential spokesman refused to reveal the Cabinet nominees. In defiance of a law recently approved by Parliament, several ministries are being headed by acting ministers.
