Noor said Thursday that reports published by certain media agencies suggesting his resignation from Balkh Government Headquarters, are baseless.
He criticized the media agencies for intentionally broadcasting baseless reports while “following their vicious news agendas.”
Noor said he has temporarily moved outside the country due to some health issues and vowed to stand by the side of the Afghan people upon his return.
This comes as earlier reports suggested that Ata Mohammad Noor has transferred all his executive authorities to Zahir WAhdat, deputy provincial governor of Balkh province.
Wahdat had confimed that Noor had transferred all his executive authorities to him; however, he did not disclose further information in this regard.
Noor is an influential political figure in Afghanistan and is one of the close allies of Dr. Abdullah Abdullah in presidential election.
