Wolesi Jirga to summon several ministers
Tue Jan 31, 2:22 pm
Members of the Wolesi Jirga (Lower House of the Parliament) during Monday’s session asked to summon the ministers who failed to utilize their development budgets last year.
The House members said about two hundred development budgets are stopped and high corruptions exist there. They asked to refer theses ministers also to the Attorney General Office.
The financial statement of the last year was also not presented on time to the house but the Ministry of Finance increased 16 million Afghanis in the development budgets without the approval of the house, the MPs said.
The MPs decided to summon first the Finance minister that has increased the development budget without the approval and then will call the other ministers to explain their failure while utilizing their development budget.
These days, the Wolesi Jirga (Lower House of the Parliament) is facing several complicated issues and so far, has been unable to elect the second deputy speaker of the House.
