Hamdard resigns after consultation within party

Apr 02, 2015 - 17:38

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Juma Khan Hamdard, acting governor of southeastern Paktika, said on Thursday he made the decision to resign after consultations with councils of Hizb-i-Islami Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) party.

“It was not my personal decision to resign but I had to leave my current position following my consultations with my party’s councils,” Hamdard said, adding though President Ashraf Ghani had not yet approved his resignation.

Earlier, the president tasked officials of the Independent Directorate of Local Government (IDLG) to hold negotiations with Paktia governor and make him persuade to take his resignation back.

Rumors about Juma Khan’s resignation spread on social media in three different languages. In his letter, he thanked the president for giving him a chance to serve the people of Paktia as governor.

Hamdard said he wanted to serve his supporters in the north and work for the development of his party, therefore, he had to resign from his position.

Meanwhile, Deputy Governor Abdul Wali Sahi said he did not have any information that Hamdard had resigned from his position.
