President Ashraf Ghani has apologized the Lower House of Parliament – Wolesi Jirga for delays in cabinet announcement and has vowed the House Speaker to introduce the cabinet not later than the upcoming Monday.
Members of Parliament are pledging the government to introduce qualified candidates representing all Afghans.
Nadir Khan Katawazi, a member of parliament said,” we will not make a secret vote, we will vote openly to those who are qualified, we will not vote based on the race, language, and political relations”.
A list of the candidates who are likely to be introduced to Afghan parliament soon are as follows:
Salahuddin Rabbani: Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Jailani Popal: Ministry of Finance
Barna Karimi: Ministry of Tele-Communication, Information Technology
Sardar Mohammad Rahimi: Ministry of Commerce

Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Interior Affairs are still disputable.
National Unity Government failed to introduce the cabinet during the first 100 Days, but the president is still asking people for patience and saying that “the cabinet will be announced soon, patience needed”.
