MAZAR-I-SHARIF (Pajhwok): Former Balkh governor and Chief Executive of the Jamiat-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (JIA), Atta Mohammad Noor, on Sunday said he would not support Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah in next presidential election.

Noor, who had been outside the country for two months, returned on Sunday, saying he was busy preparing for next year’s presidential election.

The former governor said he would not support Abdullah in future elections and would take back his party’s support from him.

“It was our support that today Abdullah is enjoying power in the Sapedar Palace. When this support is taken back from him, he will be left with no support,” he said.

Noor said during his two months abroad he held meetings with different heads of states, ambassadors and representatives and discussed with them the situation in Afghanistan.

He said the Afghanistan Salvation Alliance would soon launch its activities with a massive gathering in capital Kabulinfo-icon.

He added after that talks on different issues of Afghanistan would be initiated with the government and political groups.

Noor said he would either contest future presidential election or would support someone had the backing of the US and western countries.

“We will support someone who is not involved in ethnic, religious and tribal confrontation and wishes to maintain cordial relations with neighboring countries.”

Noor also expressed concern about what he alleged “massive preparation for rigging future elections.”

He added illegal Identity Cards also known as Tazkera were being distributed and strikers attached to them.

He called the Afghanistan Salvation Alliance as unbreakable and spurned all rumours in this regard.
