Kandahar meeting organizers on Friday warned President Ashraf Ghani that they will remove him from power based on the law after the plane of Atta Mohmmad Noor, the governor of Balkh province, was barred to take off from Mazar-e-Sharif City to Kandahar airport.
In reaction, the organizers of the meeting postponed the gathering for the second-time for Saturday and gave the government 12-hour of ultimatum.
“We are seriously warning the government that if Mr. Noor’s plane was not allowed in 12-hour to fly to Kandahar, it will have serious consequences,” Hamayoun Hamayoun, Deputy Speaker of the Parliament said in a gathering in Kandahar City.
Zahir Qadir, member of parliament from eastern Nangarhar province said,” we are not ousting [Ashraf Ghani] from power by force, because we made him the President. We will take presidency from him based on the law.”
In addition, the political figures accused President Ashraf Ghani for monopolizing the power, ethnic bias, divisions and conspiracy.
“The reason why the government is putting pressures on us instead of cooperating is because there is tyranny, individualism and dictatorship in the presidential palace,” Bashir Ahmad Tahyanj, MP and a member of “Coalition for Salvation of Afghanistan” claimed.
Ghani’s office has not commented on these remarks so far.
