The decision came at a meeting of the party’s executive council, Hezb-i-Islami spokesman Abdullah Kamawal told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Among others, former Paktia governor Juma Khan, some sitting governors, dozens of parliamentarians, ex-jihadi commanders and tribal elders were in attendance.
Kamawal said the participants had agreed on constituting a commission for the nomination of its presidential candidate. The commission will consult party representatives across the country before taking a decision in this regard.
