Abdullah Abdullah, the chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, on Monday issued a statement opposing President Ashraf Ghani’s decree officially listing members of the council, saying that according to the political agreement it is the authority of the head of the council to appoint its members.
Abdullah quoted the agreement signed in May, saying: “The head of the High Council of National Reconciliation forms the council in consultation with the president, sides and political leaders, speakers of the houses of parliament, the civil society and elites of the country.”
The government on Monday announced ten minister nominations--nine men and one woman--to head government ministries.
The nominations were announced by Sediq Sediqqi, a spokesman for the Presidential Palace, at a press conference on Monday.
