Abdullah scotches speculation about transitional govt

Sep 14, 2015 - 14:34

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Abdullah Abdullah on Monday moved to scotch speculation regarding the establishment of a transitional government.

At a cabinet meeting, Abdullah said some people had lately been conjecturing about parliamentary elections and establishment of a transitional government.

He remarked the election process in Afghanistaninfo-icon had become a reality and there was no any other way of a democratic transfer of power. “The political process commenced 14 years ago. The government established as a result of polls will continue.”

Rumours of preparations for setting up a transitional government were baseless, and there was no plan inside or outside of the country to establish such a dispensation, the CEO insisted.

Notwithstanding challenges, the national unity government had been able to make some achievements in the past year, he said, adding: “Unfortunately, intensifying insecurity has been hurting people’s confidence in the government. This is a big challenge.”

The youth leaving the country should be self-confident, as their departure offered no solution to the problems facing the country, he observed, claiming the government’s performance was improving with each passing day.

Abdullah, also an ex-foreign minister, believed the government’s message was yet to reach the people due to the existing gap. However, he explained efforts were ongoing to overcome the challenge.
