Delay in parliamentary election has no legal justification and the continuation of Wolesi Jirga after the end of the closure date would be illegal, a number of Afghan analysts said.

Some of Afghan analysts are said to believe that holding the parliamentary election with the current commission will be critical.

However, reforming the electoral commissions is one of the agreements made between President Ghani and the chief of executive officer, Abdullah; but no practical step has been taken for reforms so far.
There are also rumors that the parliamentary election would be delayed up to one and a half year.

Deputy of jurists union, Abdul Sobhan Masbah said, “according to the article 82 of constitution, the delay in parliamentary election has no legal justification and the continuation of Wolesi Jirga is legitimacy.”

Former member of Wolesi Jirga, Sultan Muhammad Orang said, “In fact, both President Ghani and chief of executive officer would be known who violate the constitution if the electoral commissions do not reform and parliamentary election delay.”

Farooq Nazari, member of Wolesi Jirga believes that president of Afghanistan has the authority to not hold the election due to specific reasons and the continuation of Wolesi Jirga would be legitimate as long as it takes.

There are also criticisms that the national unity government does not have a serious will to reform the electoral system.
