The "Commission for the Return and Communications with Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures” said that at least 25 Afghans including political figures, former government officials and parliament members have returned to Afghanistan within the past month.
The commission’s spokesman, Ahmadullah Wassiq, said these individuals had left Afghanistan after the former government collapsed but returned through the mediation of the commission.
“Senior officials such as ministers, directors, deputy ministers, provincial governors and provincial security chiefs were among these officials,” Wassiq said.
According to the commission, hundreds of political figures and former officials have received forms to return to Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, said that many figures who are abroad are seeking to return to the country.
“For those who left (the country) and feel threatened, the main goal of the commission is to eliminate their concerns about risks. I assure you that we will welcome them,” Mujahid said.
An Afghan figure who lives abroad said that the political figures, former officials and professional figures who return to Afghanistan should be given jobs in government institutions.
“The wishes of the Afghan people should be fulfilled and also plans should be implemented to solve the current challenges that engulf Afghanistan,” said Mohammad Hakim Torsan, a political figure.
Based on the statistics of the commission, more than 520 political figures and former officials have returned to Afghanistan since the establishment of the commission.
