The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said that by the order of the Islamic Emirate's Leader, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, 74,000 people in the military and civil sectors will be recruited to this ministry after the completion of the investigation of the reform commission.
MoI spokesman Abdul Matin Qani confirmed this to TOLOnews and said that priority will be given to those who have worked with the Islamic Emirate in the past twenty years.
In the meantime, the Islamic Emirate's spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said that people will be recruited to security institutions based on need.
"It is based on the need -- how much Afghanistan needs and how much our cities and districts need troops to be there to provide more security to the people and maintain security,” Mujahid said.
Some military analysts said that in addition to recruiting these people, attention should also be paid to their professional training and equipment.
"They need loyal and professional personnel in the military sector, whether in the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Interior, or Intelligence, and they also need vehicles and equipment,” said Tahir Yarghal, a military analyst.
“Currently, due to the brain drain and the fleeing of youth-- the thousands of youth who go abroad every day and drown in the waters; for the time being, we need to spend on our youth rather than the military,” said Hadi Qureshi, another military analyst.
It is not clear yet how many of these people will be recruited in the military and civil departments of the Ministry of Interior, and there is no news about the recruitment of military forces of the previous government in this ministry.
