Association of Governors:

To end the current instability, a Loya Jirga should be formed

A number of governors in a gathering in Kabul on Thursday criticized the National Unity Government (NUG) and called for holding a Loya Jirga and the Parliamentary Election.

They claim that the lack of coordination between government agencies caused the insecurity increases in the country.

Kabul’s former governor, Abdul Jabar Taqwa says that the story of acting heads should be finished.

“Solving Afghanistan’s problem is in convening a Loya Jirga. They should announce the Parliamentary election date,” Abdul Jabar Taqwa, Kabul’s former governor said.

Meanwhile, Urozgan’s former governor, Ahmad Omar Shirzad said that they will share their experiences with the government through writing and they hope the government make uses of their experiences.

“We will offer our ideas and our experience in the form of texts to the government and we hope they make use of them,” Ahmad Omar Shirzad said.

Under Article 83 of the Afghan Constitution, the parliament term ends after the disclosure of election results on the 1st of Saratan (22 June) of the 5th legislative year and the new parliament commences work.

The Loya Jirga was a central part of the agreement that brought President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah together, intended to provide the venue for bringing changes to the Afghan Constitution that would restructure the government in a way that would decentralize authority and provide better conditions for power-sharing between key interest groups.

The “Association of Afghanistan’s governors” has 80 members, of which 65 members are former governors and 15 members are the sitting governors.
