Some political figures from the previous Afghan government have advocated for the establishment of a federal system in Afghanistan.

In a virtual meeting held on Sunday, February 4th some former government officials and jihadist leaders delivered speeches and issued a statement titled the “Charter of the Federalists of Afghanistan.”

It has been proposed that the new divisions of the “future government” be based on a federal structure, consisting of 11 provincial units, in addition to Kabul, the capital.

The charter states, “The monopoly of political power and the blatant discrimination based on nationality and culture have pushed our people towards bitterness and intolerance, making the common and peaceful life of the people of Afghanistan bitter and unbearable.”

In this virtual gathering, former Vice President Sarwar Danesh, former National Congress Party leader Mohiuddin Mahdi, former members of the House of Representatives Niloofar Ibrahim, Masouma Khawari, and Zia Arya Nejad, as well as Abdulmak, Rasoul Talib, Faizullah Zaki, were in attendance.

Messages of support for this proposal were also sent by Marshal Abdul Rashid Dostum, the leader of the Junbish Mili, Ata Mohammad Noor, the leader of one branch of the Jamiat-Islami parrty, and Mohammad Muhaqiq, the leader of the People’s Unity Party of Afghanistan.

This move has sparked various reactions among political figures and political parties. So far, most leaders from the previous government who opposed the Taliban have welcomed the establishment of the Federalists of Afghanistan assembly.

The Taliban had previously opposed the federal system and considered it a precursor to the division of Afghanistan. Some other political leaders, including Hamid Karzai and Ashraf Ghani, former presidents and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, leader of Hezbe Islami have also opposed this type of system.
