The second deputy of chief of executive, Muhammad Muhaqiq says President Ghani is ready to issue a decree on formation of the Electoral Reforms Commission (ERC).
The second deputy of chief of executive said, “We are demanding reforms in electoral system and institutions.”
In the meantime, the chief of executive, Abdullah Abdullah rejects any cynical comments to electoral reforms but did not mentioned the starting time of ERC’s work.
Abdullah linked Afghanistan’s peace and stability to reforms in electoral system.
Previously, the chief of executive urged former president, Hamid Karzai to not form political parties so that the government can advance its affairs.
Now Afghan ex-ruler, Hamid Karzai called on Afghan people to put hands together for strengthening political system.
“Afghan people success is in strengthening the government and unity. I demand people to support the national unity government” Karzai said.
Meanwhile, Muhammad Muhaqiq also noted that efforts are underway to release the 31 abductees in Zabul.
“I have sent informal delegations to Quetta of Pakistan to negotiate with oppositions about the abductees and Pakistan Quetta Council issued a Fatwa to release them.”
About 3 weeks ago, a group of armed masked men in southern Afghanistan, Shah Joy district of Zabul province stopped two buses traveling to the capital, Kabul, and abducted around 31 people belonging to the ethnic Hazara minority. But their fate is still unknown.
