“We are seriously focusing about this issue to be ended and after the parliament’s summer break, we will introduce the nominees to  parliament,” said Deputy Spokesman of Chief Executive’s Office, Javid Faisal.

Some politicians believe the leaders of the National Unity Government (NUG) being engaged in disagreements over power-sharing and it caused the issue of acting ministers to remain unsolved.

“The cabinet of National Unity Government is weak and being formed after nine months,” said the leader of National Front of Afghanistan, Anwarulhaq Ahadi.

It comes as President Ghani was due to introduce nominees for Ministries of Mines, Labor and Higher Education, but it was delayed after administrative board of the parliament asked the President to introduce all the 11 nominees.
