President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has dissolved the Office of Chief Executive amid looming political crisis following the controversial announcement of presidential elections.

Sources in ARG Palace have said President Ghani has issued a decree dissolving the Office of the Chief Executive.

The sources further added that the decree specifically states that none of the official letters issued from the Office of the Chief Executive status.

This comes as both Abdullah Abdullah and Mohammad Ashaf Ghani held parallel oath taking ceremonies in capital Kabul on Monday.

The Independent Election Commission announced incumbent Ashraf Ghani as the winner of the controversial presidential elections last month.

However, Ghani’s rival Abdullah Abdullah said he had won the presidential race insisting that he would form a parallel government.
