Afghan Millat party denies backing Ahadi’s party

Afghan Millat party denies backing Ahadi’s party

Jan 14, 2016 - 17:10

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghan Millat Party on Thursday denied claims it was supporting the newly-launched “Afghanistaninfo-icon’s New National Front” party led by Anwarul Haq Ahadi.

Millat party’s honorary chief Ahadi on January 11 announced he planned to launch a new political entity called the Afghanistan Nawe Milli Jabha (Afghanistan’s New National Front).

On Thursday, Ahadi formally announced the party’s launch during a special ceremony in Kabul.

However, Abdul Qayum Arif, the Afghan Millat party’s general secretary, told a news conference here that his party was not supporting the front created by Ahadi.

Arfi said some news outlets had reported that the Afghan Millat was supporting Ahadi’s party, but the claims were baseless.

He said Ahadi had no executive role in the Afghan Millat party and he had been only honorary chief.

“The Afghan Millat party announced its support for the national unity government when the president was elected, and we are still adherent to our stand, we would not back those who want to work for their personal interests,” Arif added.

Seddiq Ahmad Patman, a member of the party’s leadership council, said their party was formed of six formal and 11 informal political parties as well as a number of parliament members.

He said the aim of the party was to bring about positive changes in Afghanistan and improve law enforcement, democracy and social justice in the country.
