Omar Daudzai, the Head of Secretariat of High Peace Council cleared today in Kabul that the issue of the interim government will not be discussed in the upcoming Consultative Loya Jirga. Mr Dawudzai is making this statement at the time when some of the presidential candidates have recently proposed plans of a caretaker government.

Meanwhile, Daudzai spoke about the structure of the Loya Jirga and said that about 2000 people from all over Afghanistan will participate in the Peace Consultative Jirga.

The head of the secretariat of the High Peace Council emphasized that about 30% of the Jirga’s participants will be women. He added that around 1100 participants will attend from the provinces and about 900 others will come from the capital city Kabul.

“One of the major goals of the Peace Consultative Jirga is to discuss and revise the Afghan reconciliation strategy”, said Mr Daudzai.

According to HPC secretariat chief, another important goal of the Peace Consultative Jirga is to reach a consensus on the mechanism of peace talks in Afghanistan. He further added that the Afghan president has emphasized that an agreement with the Taliban will come with conditions that will be decided after the consultative Loya Jirga.

The head of the Secretariat of the Peace Council noted that the decree for the organization of the Jirga and organizing team is ready and will be signed by the president within the next two days.

“The assembly could be extended for another two days if it did not reach the result within three days,” said Dawoodzai.

At the same time, Mr Daoudzi stated that the regional countries have the will to bring peace in Afghanistan, but clarified that in terms of taking action they will choose a parallel initiative. He called these uncoordinated and parallel initiatives challenging.

The Loya Jirga is scheduled to take place between 17 to 20 March.
