The Afghan parliament referred Kabul mayor, Daud Sultanzoy to the Attorney General’s Office for issues related to his leadership in Kabul.

Afghan MPs declared the Kabul mayor’s signature “invalid” on Wednesday, claiming that he failed to prevent illegal construction.

He previously was summoned by the parliament but he did not appear to answer the parliament members, reports indicate.

It is said that Sultan Zoi’s non-participation in the House of Representatives session and his inattention to the decisions of the parliament have angered the parliament members.

The issues Afghan MPs complaint against Kabul mayor are, his absence from parliamentary committee meetings, failure to prevent illegal construction, hiring staff without procedure, and the mayor has not yet implemented any developmental project.

The mayor of Kabul had previously been accused of embezzling 800 million afghanis from the anti-Corona budget during the outbreak of the first wave of the virus, despite these allegations, he had received a medal from the president.
