Afghan House of Representatives paved the way for the introduction of disqualified ministers by the Afghan government upon revising one of the internal clause of the Afghan house regulation.

This comes as Afghan president Hamid Karzai recently introduced 9 new candidates for the governmental positions to
obtain confidence vote through Afghan parliament members, after almost 2 years delay.

A number of the parliament members expressed concerns for the reintroduction of 7 nominees who were previously disqualified by the Afghan house of representatives.

Afghan house of representatives on Saturday revised the 76th article of the Afghan internal house regulation which was preventing a disqualified nominee to be introduced once again for obtaining confidence vote.

Afghan house speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi said, only 5 Afghan parliament members of 180 present MP gave negative votes to the revision of the clause.

Afghan parliament disqualified these nominees around two years ago and were appointed as the acting head of the ministries by Afghan president Hamid Karzai.

The nominees include Mohammad Ismail Head of the Afghan Energy and water Ministry, Daud Ali Najafi Head of the Transportation and Aviation Ministry, Suraya Dalil Head of the Afghan Public Health Ministry, Husn Banu Ghazanfar Head of Afghan Women’s Affairs Ministry and Amir Sangin nominee for the Afghan Telecommunication Ministry.

Wais Barmak was appointed as the deputy of the Afghan Rural Development Ministry after he failed to obtain enough votes, and Obaidullah Obaid who was introduced as Afghan Higher Educationn Minister was appointed as the Afghan
ambassador to Iran.

Afghan House of Representatives had prohibited the nominees to present their working curriculum and professional working backgrounds due to legal barriers.

The new nominees for the Afghan Public Works Ministry Najibullah Ozhan and Urban Development Ministry Hassan Abdullahi were allowed for a speech in the Afghan house of representatives and reply to the Afghan MPs’ questions regarding their future working plans.

In the meantime the remaining nominees are also expected to brief the Afghan house of representatives in coming days.

The voting to qualify or disqualify the nominees, as it was announced will take place on Tuesday.
