President, CEO have complete understanding on various issues
KABUL (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah had more understanding on various issues with President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, but his recent remarks about the president was aimed at to attract the attention of members of Jamiat-i-Islami (JI) political party, a reliable sources at Presidential Palace said.
earlier, CEO during a gathering at Sapedar Palace on International Day of Youth criticised Ghani over some issues and said he had no option but to openly express his views.
The CEO said he could not hold a single meeting with the president in three months to talk about the promises made under the unity government deal which was the legitimacy of CEO post, organisation of grand Loya Jirga, amending the constitution, reformation of the election system, distribution of the computerised identify cards and others.
Abdullah expressed his displeasure over the non-implem6entation of the unity government deal in the given two years, saying he was the first person who accepted Ghani as president, adding discussion and debate was usual practice in governance but if a person had no patience to discuss issues he had not right to be the president.
But an individual at Presidential Palace, who wished to go unnamed, told Pajhwok Afghan News, Abdullah criticising comments regarding president Ghani came at a time when grand meeting of the JI was scheduled in the coming days, saying the CEO was a part of the party and key member of JI were not happy with Abdullah.
He said the CEO comments were more about point scoring a head of the JI meeting in which party affairs and future plans would be discussed.
According to the source the CEO was present in key meeting of the government including the meetings of economic council, National Security Council, procurement commission and other meetings held at Presidential Palace.
He said the CEO had more understanding on various issues compared to anyone else in the government and his comments were merely to impress the JI members.
According to the source the JI might introduce another candidate for the CEO post because Abdullah was introduced on the behalf of the party and it was the party right to replace him.
