Ghani, Abdullah meet to sort out differences

Ghani, Abdullah meet to sort out differences

Aug 27, 2016 - 17:20

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Abdullah have met in an attempt to iron out their differences on key issues, including electoral reforms.

The tension-defusing talks between the national unity government leaders were held at the Presidential Palace late on Thursday, Abdullah’s deputy spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Ahmad Maisam said the meeting, the second between the bickering coalition partners in 10 days, took place in a cordial atmosphere. “The discussion on issues of national import happened in a constructive spirit.”

Ghani stressed the need for strengthening the government and working together with the CEO on steering the country out of the current problems, including reforms in state institutions.

Maisam said the president used the occasion to explain his strategy for dealing with the challenges facing Afghanistan. The president and his CEO met one on one, according to Abdullah’s spokesman.

At their next meeting in the coming week, the will leaders would focus on ways of bolstering coordination in running state affairs in a more effective manner in line with their agreement on forming the government.

Before the third huddle, the CEO is expected to brief his allies on the outcome of the two meetings and seek their suggestions.

On August 11, Dr. Abdullah criticised Ghani’s leadership and said he was obliged to make public his differences with him.

He alleged key pledges like convening a Loya Jirga, amending the Constitution to create the post of prime minister and introduce electoral reforms had not been implemented so far.
