Opposition to new Bamyan governor premature
BAMYAN CITY (Pajhwok): Some provincial council members and civil society activists on Monday termed lawmakers’ opposition to the newly-appointed governor of central Bamyan province as their personal views and a premature judgment.
A couple of days back, lawmakers from Bamyan including Mohammad Akbar, Abdul Rahman Shahidani and Safora Aylkhani opposed the appointment Tahir Zahir as the new governor. They said the governor might face huge problems as the majority of Bamyan people were against him.
But Mohammad Hassan Asadi, a member of the provincial council, rejected the claims of the Wolesi Jirga members as their personal views.
Hussain Dad Ahmadi, the head of a civil society organization, said the provincial administrative affairs hung in the balance since the departure of the acting governor and the absence of a new governor.
He said it showed weakness of the unity government that a new governor was yet to assume office to streamline the administrative affairs.
He said it would be injustice to judge the new governor before his inauguration and that people should allow the new administrator to work before assessing his performance.
