Senators’ oath-taking ceremony next week: Ezedyar
The provincial council and presidential elections were held on April 5 this year in which 2,600 candidates, including 308 females, took part. At least 458 male and 97 female candidates made their way to the provincial councils.
Last month, the provincial councils held election in which 34 members one from each province were proposed to the Senate for four years.
Mohammad Alim Ezedyar, the Senate deputy chairman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the new senators would be sworn-in next week. “Because of security reasons I cannot specifically tell you the day as to when the senator will take oath,” he added.
But Farhad Sakhi, a candidate for the senate, said the new members would probably take oath next Sunday.
