No interim, transitional government in plan: Taliban


A senior Taliban member Mullah Ahmadullah Wasiq who is based in the Afghan capital said that the group has no plan to shape any other kind of government but a permanent one.

In his recent interview with BBC, Pashto Wasiq said that negotiations over the upcoming government have been expedited.

Ahmadullah Wasiq reasoned that the slowness in filling the political vacuum in Afghanistan is their intention for creating an inclusive government that is acceptable by all parties in Afghanistan.

It has been now six days after the Taliban took over Kabul and Afghanistan was left without the head of state. The only appointments the Taliban did are appointing a few provincial governors, mayors, and their special force unit for protecting the presidential palace.

Wasiq in his interview though did not specifically name any party in Afghanistan, reiterated that negotiations are ongoing with all parties in the country.

A council that includes former president Hamid Karzai, head of high council for national reconciliation Abdullah Abdullah, and head of Hezb-e-Islami Gulabadin Hekmatyar is apparently the only party in the country that the Taliban can engage in negotiations with them.

According to Wasiq, head of the Taliban’s political office in Doha Mullah Baradar has arrived in Kabul from Kandahar province and is busy holding intra-Taliban meetings and negotiations with other parties.

He was hopeful about an inclusive government to be shaped sooner.
