Sources say that the United Nations mediation to resolve the differences between Jamiat-e-Islami Party of Afghanistan and central government over the dismissal of Balkh governor has failed.

After a two week delay, the Presidential Palace and Jamiat Party resumed their negotiations on Tuesday, but the talks ended with no result.

Delegations from the two sides have discussed the share of political parties in the upcoming parliamentary elections.

Reportedly, representatives from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan were also present at the talks.

UNAMA has not made a comment about this report yet.

The distribution of electronic identity cards, the issue of party-based parliament and guarantee of ARG-Jamiat agreement by President Ashraf Ghani and international institutions are the differences which are still existed between the two sides.

“The government either accepts these reasonable recommendations which benefits the government, the people of Afghanistan, the political parties, civil societies and democratic processes in the country or the negotiations will end with no results,” said Hafiz Mansoor, a senior member of Jamiat party.

About two months ago, President Ghani announced that he has approved Atta Mohammad Noor resignation as Balkh governor and has appointed Engineer Mohammad Dawoud as his successor.

Noor who is also the chief executive of Jamiat party, defied his ouster and vowed that he won’t allow anyone to oust him from the post, except through negotiation.
