AT-KABUL: The civil society activists on Monday asked the Council of Protection and Stability of Afghanistan (CPSA), a recently establish opposition party, to play constructive role in the country’s politics.
On Friday a number of Jihadi leaders, former officials and the civil society activists came together in a session and announced establishment of the CPSA to pressurize the government to deliver on its pledges.
The activists in a press conference on Monday termed establishment of CPSA according to the Constitution but urged the opposition party to refrain from toppling the government.
Mohammad Yousuf Amin Zazai, a member of the Federation of Afghanistan Civil Society, said that majority of CPSA’s members were allegedly involved corruption.
He said the opposition party should prefer the national interests and work for stability of the country.
Sayed Yahya Bamyani, another activist, said that Afghanistan was passing through a critical juncture and therefore, need support of the CPSA.
However, the CPSA rejected concerns and allegations of the civil society activists and said the council was established to bring reforms and stability in the country.
Dawood Kalakani, a member of the Wolesi Jirga and CPSA, told Afghanistan Times that the party was set up according to the Constitution and would monitor the government’s activities.
He stressed that the CPSA would accelerate its political and civil activities according to the laws and would criticize the government for its wrong policies.
