Unity government is illegitimate: Tribal elders
GARDIZ (Pajhwok): The tribal elders and provincial council (PC) members of southeastern Paktia and Khost provinces on Sunday said that the national unity government was illegitimate.
In a gathering, they urged the government to control the spiraling insecurity in the country or else both President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah to step down.
Addressing a well-attended gathering, Pacha Khan Zadran, a leading tribal elder in Paktia and former lawmaker, alleged the unity government was ineligible and unacceptable to them.
He urged residents to ensure security and develop areas by themselves because the government would not pay heed to develop the area.
Muhammad Rahman Qaderi, Paktia provincial council member, told that the president and CEO were busy in dividing ministries and other positions and had no time to resolve pressing problems being faced by the masses.
Sufi Habib, another elder, stated that the government had many shortcomings, which caused obstacles on the way to develop the country.
