More than 16 months have passed since the Islamic Emirate was established in Afghanistan, but “an official cabinet” is yet to be announced and the government is still administered by acting ministers.
The Islamic Emirate’s deputy spokesperson, Bilal Karimi, said that current operations in governmental institutions are proceeding normally and that efforts are also made to establish an official cabinet.
“Whenever we see a shortage anywhere, efforts will be made to fill it,” Karimi said.
Analysts said that one of the reasons that the caretaking trend has not been ended is that the international community does not recognize the Islamic Emirate government.
“The most important principle is that we have not yet been able to have a wider political dialogue with the international community so that they recognize the current government of Afghanistan. The second issue is that it is related to the political incoherence of the geographical management of Afghanistan,” said Mohammad Zalmai Afghanyar, a political analyst.
“As soon as possible, the Islamic Emirate should announce the official cabinet and the permanent cabinet, in which all Afghans have a share,” said Abdul Qader Qani, another political analyst.
Twenty-five of the country's ministries are now run by acting ministers.
According to a number of experts, the formal cabinet's formation promotes effective governance.
“The sooner the Islamic Emirate acts on this matter, the issue of their recognition will be essential for them and it will be recognized faster,” said Parwiz Stanikzai, a university lecturer.
The Islamic Emirate's spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, previously noted that more time was needed for the formation of the formal cabinet.
The most major reasons for not establishing an official cabinet, in Mujahid’s view, were the lack of a council and the constitution.
