Rabbani pans Ghani for monopolising power

Rabbani pans Ghani for monopolising power

Sep 19, 2020 - 08:41

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Ex-foreign minister Salahuddin Rabbani has blasted President Ashraf Ghani for power concentration and interfering in affairs of state institutions.

Erstwhile president Rabbani was assassinated in a suicide attack by the Talibaninfo-icon eight years ago when he was the chairman of the High Peace Councilinfo-icon.

The then foreign minister hit out at the Ghani administration while addressing an event marking the eighth death anniversary of his father Burhanuddin Rabbani.

The Presidential Palace has been trying over the past five years to monopolise power in utter disregard of democratic norms, he claimed, blaming the government for undermining the system.

Rabbani opined the peace process also afforded an opportunity for discussions on correcting flaws in the current political system.

His party never opposed the peace process, but it did not agree with the flawed framework for the peace negotiations, he explained.

Former president Hamid Karzai urged the warring sides to reach a peace agreement. He also made a strong pitch for national unity.

Karzai went on to remark: “I wish our beloved professor (Rabbani) was here today to witness the start of the peace parleys on Qatar.”

Speaking on the occasion, Vice President Amrullah Saleh promised the achievements Afghanistaninfo-icon had made over the last 19 years would be preserved in the peace talks.

Hezb-i-Wahdat-i-Islami leader Mohammad Mohaqiq told Friday’s ceremony: “Our cowardly rivals misused government resources to commit electoral fraud.”
