Consensus party offers to mediate in Ghani-Noor row

Consensus party offers to mediate in Ghani-Noor row

Jan 11, 2018 - 15:15

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghanistaninfo-icon’s Peoples National Consensus Organisation (APNCO) on Thursday offered to mediate in a political crisis pitting President Ghani against ousted Balkh governor Atta Mohammad Noor.

The group, stressing resolution to the tension between the Presidential Palace and the Jamiat-i-Islamiinfo-icon party, warned they would allow no one to play with the future of different tribes in the country.

President Ashraf Ghani has recently accepted Noor’s resignation and named Eng. Dawood his replacement as Balkh Governor. The Presidential Palace’s move angered the former governor who strongly opposed his removal

Noor had said he submitted his resignation last year based on some conditions which had not been met and he would leave office at the advice of his party, the Jamiat.

Noor had told a gathering in Mazar-i-Sharif that his party 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.

Mohammad Ibrahim Alokozai, APNCO head, addressed a gathering in Kabul arranged to offer mediation between Noor and the Presidential Palace to end the crisis.

Alokozai said some individuals were fueling differences only to reach personal goals, which was not in the interest of Afghanistan.

He termed the current political and economic situation of the country as dangerous and offered mediation between the Palace and Noor in resolving their tussle.

Addressing Noor, Alokozai said the people of Afghanistan were tired of fighting and insecurity and asked the former governor not to go for confrontation for his own personal interests.

“This country needs us and we will not allow anyone to threaten the system or push the country back to the ages of darkness and conflict,” he said.

Alokozai asked the president to implement the law equally on all individuals and groups.

A resolution passed by the APNCO vowed not to allow any political party to play with future of tribes or threaten peace and stability. They would frustrate every effort at endangering national interests.

They also asked political parties to shun internal differences and prefer national interest over personal interest and spend their energies on positive and constructive activities.
