Executive directorate to complete 5-year term: CEO
KABUL (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Abdullah Abdullah on Tuesday said the executive directorate having a prime ministerial authority would continue for five years.
Abdullah said the national unity government had pledged calling into session a Loya Jirga and holding district council elections, but the inappropriate situation in the country did not allow it to implement them.
“The national unity government’s political agreement has no mention of an end to the executive directorate if a Loya Jirga is not convened in two years,” the statement quoted Abdullah as saying.
He said some figures trying to enforce their personal agenda wanted to pave the ground for their entry into the government.
Abdullah said he was only working for enforcement of justice and the Constitution.
About the peace agreement with the HIA, he said he had no fears about the peace deal but was concerned about the ongoing insecurity in Afghanistan.
Peace and stability in the country was the need of all Afghans, he said.
Afghanistan Ulema Council head Qeyamuddin Kashaf said the religion and the government were interconnected and some figures inside and outside of the country trying to separate the two would fail.
He said some circles wanted to hatch different conspiracies and create problems for the national unity government.
Kashaf said those hatching conspiracies could do nothing to damage Afghanistan. He asked all people to collectively support the government and its programs.
All people have the right to criticize government’s failures, but Islam allowed no one to insult others, he said.
