Right and Justice Party swings behind Ghani
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Right and Justice Party on Wednesday asked President Hamid Karzai to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the United States of America (USA).
Party leader and former interior minister Mohammad Hanif Atmar told reports in Kabul that they had taken a unanimous decision to support presidential runner Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai.
“We are committed to supporting Dr. Ghani in the interest of the party and the country,” Atmar said, adding that his party’s strategy and the Ghani’s manifesto were similar to a large extent.
He said the party would strive to encourage workers to vote for Ghani in the April elections. Several members of the party, launched in 2011, have worked in government positions.
