News Story: Ghani Under Pressure To Bring Security Reforms, Review Policies

By Mirabed Joyenda

Former president and member of the Council for the Protection and Stability of Afghanistan, Sibghatullah Mujadidi, on Sunday warned government could collapse unless President Ashraf Ghani brings reforms to his policies.

This comes just 10 days after a string of deadly attacks in the nation’s capital Kabul.

Mujadidi also voiced support for the protestors calling for reforms in the country, but suggested they should end their demonstration.

“With consideration of the incidents which happened and in view of the situation in Afghanistan, we don’t think that it would be appropriate to fire top government officials from the job. We call on government to think about systematic reforms, government should review its policies when it comes to the affairs of the people, we are against their current policy, government is committing major mistakes in its policies and it should come to an end, otherwise, the time will come for the collapse of the government,” said Mujadidi

“Our position has remained clear, there is a need for a consensus between the Jihadi personalities and the political elites to overcome the issues of cooperation with the government,” said Sayed Hamid Gailani, a member of the Council for the Protection and Stability of Afghanistan.
