Central govt asked to empower governors

Jun 29, 2015 - 18:18

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghanistaninfo-icon Governors Association (AGA) on Monday asked the central government to empower governors in areas of military, security and civil affairs at provincial level.

In a statement, the association expressed its concern over the deteriorating security situation in a number of provinces and praised security forces for their valor.

In order to strengthen the security situation and provincial administrations, the association asked the central government to authorise governors of some provinces in military, security and civil affairs.

It called for the authority and responsibilities of governors to be explained and specified and also urged increased coordination among security organs in provinces.

Demanding a working mechanism between provinces and ministries, the association welcomed Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) chief Jilani Potal’s first 100-day action plan and praised the plan as inclusive. The implementation of such action plans would further strengthen provincial governments and reform them, the statement concluded.
