By Farhad Naibkhel-KABUL: The Wolesi Jirga (Lower House) of Parliament on Saturday, with a majority vote disqualified ministers of foreign affairs, labor and public works for their failure in spending budgetary allocations during the outgoing Afghan fiscal year.
Wolesi Jirga members summoned ministers and sacked them after they failed to gain lawmakers satisfaction during public Impeachment.
“Ministers of Foreign Affairs Salahuddin Rabbani, Labor and Social Affairs Nasrin Oryakhil and Public Work Mahmoud Baligh dismissed with majority of votes by Wolesi Jirga,” said Speaker of the Wolsi Jirga Abdul Raouf Ibrahimi.
He said that these minsters have been failed to spend the allocated development budget, thus they were rejected by the parliament members.
“We want the president to introduce new qualified nominees for the mentioned ministries as soon as possible,” he added.
The Wolesi Jirga (Lower House) of Parliament members, with a majority vote, last week made decision to summon 19 ministers and numbers of departmental heads to brief legislators regarding their failure in spending budgetary allocations during the outgoing Afghan fiscal year.
Law makers decided to disqualify those ministers, who their answers were not logical and convincing.
Rejection of three ministers come in a while, that currently three ministries are already running by caretakers.
