Jamiat agreed to approval of Noor’s resignation: Abdullah

Jamiat agreed to approval of Noor’s resignation: Abdullah

Dec 25, 2017 - 15:06

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah has claimed the Jamiat-i-Islamiinfo-icon (JI) party agreed to the ouster of Atta Mohammad Noor as the governor of northern Balkh province but latter changed its stance.

Abdullah, addressing the Council of Ministers here, in his reaction to Noor’s allegations of the CEO’s involvement in his removal, said: “Fifteen days back, I agreed that the Balkh governor should be removed and the JI leadership also agreed with that.”

“The sky would not drop on the earth, another person should be appointed. The JI assured that all issues would be resolved within a week, but the story turned different,” the CEO said.

Abdullah said he still believed all issues should be resolved without causing any harm to the people and the government’s dignity.

“As it was heard I was accused of 80 percent behind the approval of the resignation, I think I was 100 percent responsible. Besides all other engagements I have right now, I have to be also careful about my teeth,” the CEO said, as he referred to Noor remarks of breaking his teeth.

Abdullah said the formation of the National Unity Government (NUG) was a historic move which best suited the situation of Afghanistaninfo-icon and the only applicable option.

“Unfortunately, the agreement of NUG was not implemented in the past three years. Had it been implemented, there would have been fewer problems today”, he believed.

He said efforts had been made to undermine the executive branch of the government and some individuals even tried to introduce themselves as the best option, but they failed and, “We patiently witnessed their failure.”

Abdullah recalled he had been in touch with the president regarding the formation of NUG and introduction of Cabinet ministers and had held consultations with him.

Earlier, Atta Mohammad Noor, the JI secretary, and former governor of Balkh province had said Abdullah lost support of JI.

Last week, President Ashraf Ghani accepted Noor’s resignation and introduced Eng. Dawood his replacement as Balkh Governor.

However, Noor he had said he submitted his resignation last year based on some conditions.

On Saturday, Noor told a gathering in Mazar-i-Sharif that his party Jamiat-i-Islami gave legitimacy to the last presidential election which had otherwise no legitimacy.

Noor accused CEO Abdullah of 80 percent contributing to the making of conspiracies against him.
