Parliament Urges Govt To Finalize Ministerial Candidates Before Summer Break

The Lower House of the Parliament urged the Presidential Palace and the Sepidar Palace to introduce their nominated cabinet members for a vote of confidence before the session’s summer break.

Some members say the government’s delay is intentional so that the parliamentarians go on the month and a half recess.

Ministers said that even if the nominees are introduced now, it will take the Parliament some time to verify their credentials and citizenship and called it a tactic to pressurize them to make decisions in a short period of time.

However, they are willing to delay the summer break, if necessary, to finalize the members of the cabinet in due process.

They have asked the government to hasten the nomination process so that the ‘acting’ ministers can go for a vote of confidence and start working for their ministries. In the last few years, such acting ministers had not been accountable to the parliament for their work.

Presidential spokesperson Sediq Sediqqi has previously said that most of their candidates have already been appointed, and they are waiting for the list from Abdullah Abdullah, Chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation.
