Abdulrab Rasul Sayyaf, a prominent former Jahadi leader, on Friday called on President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah to pave the way for holding a Loya Jirga, or grand assembly of elders, as soon as possible.

“According to their pledge, the government leaders should pave the way for Constitutional Loya Jirga so the nation’s elders and representatives could set together and decide about the current and future of the country,” Sayyaf told Ariana News.

He emphasized that the current situation in Afghanistan is worrying and critical.

In reaction to Kandahar meeting, where government critics have gathered, Sayyaf said he hope they make a correct decision.

“God willing, they will not make an incorrect decision, they will consider the national interest of the country and will make decisions based on the situation,” he added.

On the elections, he stated that there is no other option for Afghanistan except of holding a transparent elections.

“In order to satisfy the nation and respect the law, they must honestly pave the way for a transparent election, because no election is better than a fraudulent election,” Sayyaf said.

This comes as recently Hamid Karzai, former president of Afghanistan, has also called for an urgent election in order to determine Afghan future.
