Ahady poised to launch new political party

Jan 11, 2016 - 13:16

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Afghan Millat party chief, Dr. Anwar-ul-Haq Ahady, is set to launch a new political entity called the Afghanistaninfo-icon Nawe Milli Jabha (Afghanistan’s New National Front), an ally said on Monday.

Hamidullah Alami, an Afghan Millat party leader, told Pajhwok Afghan News the group, whose creation would be formally announced on Thursday, would play the role of an opposition party.

Former president Hamid Karzai’s cabinet colleagues, governors, senators, public representatives, civil societyinfo-icon activists and tribal elders are said to be members of the new political party.

Khushal Khalili, a political commentator, hailed the creation of new parties as a positive step. He stressed the need for a grand opposition alliance to keep an eye on government performance and mount pressure on the authorities, when necessary.

“It is the right of every individual to enter politics in a legal way,” he commented, alleging some individuals wanted to create opposition parties to put pressure on the government not to investigate corruption cases against them.
