WJ again summons Ulumi over spiraling insecurity
KABUL (Pajhwok): As many as 64 Wolesi Jirga (WJ) members on Wednesday signed agreed to summon minister of interior to brief the august house about growing incidents of violence that has been plaguing the country for weeks and the group attack on the parliament building.
In line with article 92 of the internal principles of the house, a minister could be summoned after approval of 20 percent lawmakers. At least 50 members of the lower house make 20 percent of the total strength of the house.
Last Saturday, Interior Minister Noor-ul-Haq Ulumi and other high ranking security officials were summoned to the house to update the house about the parliament attack and other incidents of insecurity, but Ulumi did not satisfy members of Wolesi Jirga.
Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi said the form which was signed by at least 64 lawmakers was submitted to the administrative panel of the house for further proceedings.
