Former Afghan lawmaker, deputy house speaker of the Lower House of Parliament, Hamayon Hamayon, harshly reacted to the signing of the agreement between Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah.

Hamayon posted a statement online, stating that he endorses the Islamic Emirate led by Taliban following the signing of the deal between Abdullah and Ghani.

He also added that he would prefer Hamayon Talib over Hamayon Hamayon in a bid to confront the two leaders.

Ghani and Abdullah signed an agreement on Sunday to end the political impasse which intensified following the controversial announcement of presidential elections.

Both Ghani and Abdullah took oath of the office in March which further sparked tensions on political level in the country.

The signing of the agreement was widely welcomed as the tensions on political level were considered as the main barrier towards the advancement of reconciliation process, mainly the launch of the intra-Afghan talks following the signing of U.S.-Taliban peace deal late in February this year.
