KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Saturday reviewed preparations for holding the long due parliamentary and district council elections and set the selection committee a date to commence its work.

President Ghani thanked participants of a gathering he presided over to review preparations for the elections for their efforts in completing the election law’s first step (endorsement), a statement from the Presidential Palace said. “Today’s gathering is aimed at devising and formulating a roadmap for transparent, free, just and inclusive elections,” the president said.

The president also set a work commencing date for the selection committee, it added.

The statement said Abdul Salam Rahimi, head of the Presidential Palace’s administrative affairs, that they had sent five letters to institutions having membership of the selection committee. The selection committee’s composition would soon be completed, he added.

Rahimi said a secretariat for the selection committee had been established in addition to a proper place for its meetings. At the gathering, Justice Minister Abdul Basir Anwar said the election law would be published in the official gazette this week.
