The Taliban said that foreign forces have left the country and that no obstacle remains in the way of announcing the future government, which they will do soon.
“Now we live in a completely independent Afghanistan. The new government will be announced very soon,” said Anaamullah Samangani, a member of the Taliban’s cultural commission.
Although Samangani did not give details about the structure and features of the future government, he said it will be an inclusive government and all the people will see themselves in it.
Samangani’s remarks over the new government come amid a visit by Pakistan’s ISI chief Lt Gen. Faiz Hamid, who arrived in Kabul on Saturday with a delegation of senior Pakistani officials.
Pakistani media reported that Hamid arrived in Kabul at the invitation of the Taliban.
Meanwhile, political analysts say the Taliban should consider merit-based appointments in the future government.
“Dozens of our ministries are technical ministries and for them we need technical people,” said Sayed Eshaq Gilani, a political analyst.
A number of residents of the country meanwhile urge the Taliban to form an inclusive government and open the public institutions.
“To any department that people go, it is closed. This has created problems for the people,” said Habibullah, a Kabul resident.
“The Taliban should form an inclusive government that everyone should be included in,” Abdul Ali Nazari, a resident of Kunduz province said.
