Bamyan PC elects administrative board members
BAMYAN CITY (Pajhwok): The only female provincial council head in the country on Sunday lost her position during administrative board election in central Bamyan province.
Members of provincial councils today voted to elect their administrative boards nationwide.
In Bamyan, the nine-member council elected Hussain Dad Khalili as the administrative board head, Mulavi Yousuf Muzhary his deputy and Syed Ali Hashimi as secretary.
Khalil, who won the election by a single vote lead, told Pajhwok Afghan News they would prepare new work plans in future meetings.
Five votes went to Khalil and four to his rival, an election that shows division in the body.
Hashemi said: “Some problems exist among members as each candidate were cast four negative votes. We hope there would be no problem among the members in work process.” He said the division would be discussed and solved by the administrative board.
The council has two women, but none are part of the administrative board. Taiba Khawari, the former head of the council and Abdul Ahad Binawa, former deputy head, lost their reelection and only Sayed Ali Hashemi remained as secretary.
Khawari congratulated Khalili on his victory and hoped the council would help resolve people’s problems under his leadership.
He said today’s election was based on agreements between the council members, but generally the process was transparent.
