Although the national constitution is not yet in place, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman stressed that Afghanistan currently holds a "law, and that the government is going towards increased legality."
Zabiullah Mujahid, despite stressing the importance of law in the country, said that the constitution is a small part of legality.
"It is not like our country lacks a law. Law exists and also enforcement. The Sharia laws are being enforced all over the country. Of course, a small part which is the constitution, which explains the formation and types of the government-- that is underway," Mujahid said.
This comes as legal analysts said that the formal confirmation of the constitution is the basic responsibility of the Islamic Emirate.
"The first responsibility is to have the law and enforcement of law. They should specify their responsibilities and authorities within the circle of law. I ask them, based on which law do your intelligence departments do the punishing?" said Abdul Shokor Dadras, a legal analyst.
"The constitution ... is part of the national rule and it is defined in principles," said Mohammad Asif Faqiri, a legal analyst.
The Islamic Emirate came to power on August 15, 2021, since then Afghanistan has yet to have a constitution.
