KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members on Monday asked the government to stop recruiting people in public sector departments on the basis of nepotism and personal relations.

A lower house member from western Herat province, Munawwar Shah Bahadari, said there were some people appointed against merit on the basis of personnel connections.

“Be careful the unity government officials when people can bring into power a government, they can also reject it. If the administrative corruption is not prevented in ministries and government agencies, the nation will not remain silent,” he said.

Educated and experienced individuals were sacked including 133 employees of the Afghanistaninfo-icon Investment Support Agency (AISA) by the agency new head, Mohammad Qurban Haqjo, another lawmaker from Laghman province, Hajji Sahib Khan, said. He said those fired possessed master’s degrees

“It is shocking, the youths are going to foreign countries due to joblessness while many of the youths who are not relatives of ministers are terminated from their jobs,” he said.

During Sunday’s session of the Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon or upper house of parliament, Senator Nisar Haris said Counternarcotics Minister Salamat Azimi had appointed her son as her advisor.

However, the ministry’s spokesman denied his claim as baseless. He said the newly-appointed advisor to the minister was Mohammad Fahim, who had master’s degree and had no relation with Azimi.
