Ghani’s swearing-in ceremony has been pushed back to Monday afternoon

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s swearing-in ceremony for a second term has been pushed back to Monday afternoon, his spokesman said.

Earlier, Abdullah Abdullah, who contested election results and proclaimed himself winner, also postponed his plan for a parallel swearing-in ceremony.

An official told Reuters that Ghani, US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad and Abdullah were continuing meetings on Monday morning as they worked towards a deal to prevent two parallel inauguration ceremonies.
