Muslimyar wants remaining cabinet picks named soon

Muslimyar wants remaining cabinet picks named soon

Mar 17, 2015 - 20:20

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Upper House chairman on Tuesday asked the President Ashraf Ghani administration to name the remaining cabinet members soon.

Speaking to journalists in Kabul, Fazal Hadi Muslimyar said if the Talibaninfo-icon really desired peace parleys, then they should set free the 31 hostages.

“Last time also, cabinet members were introduced after an inordinate delay. I know there are challenges but I want the government to refer them for a vote of confidence soon,” he added.

He voiced concern over the performance of caretakers in a government that has been championing reforms and said the prevalent situation needed to end.

Of the 25 ministers-designate and heads of independent departments introduced to parliament two months back, only eight managed to win votes of confidence.

Muslimyar said Afghanistaninfo-icon required stability more than any other country and the government should make peace only with the groups that were prepared to accept the constitution.

Talibinfo-icon is our brother. We want peace. We welcome peace with everyone who respects our constitution and achievements of the last 13 years,” he remarked.

If the Taliban were serious about peace with the government, they should release the 31 passengers they had abducted on the Herat-Kabul highway.

If they were not prepared to release them, then the president and CEO should take stern action against captors, he concluded.
