I call upon our colleagues and other presidential hopefuls to invite lawyers and legislators to elaborate on this”, Noor tweeted.

He pointed that it is stipulated in the constitution as the supreme law that the president’s tenure ends in May. “The TV channels have archive speeches of Ashraf Ghani who vowed not to exceed his term by one day. This shows how greedy of power he has become and is resorting to unlawful options”, he wrote.

Noor also said that President Ashraf Ghani cannot refer to the old traditions to seek an extension, “He can’t justify his unlawful decision by resorting to another unlawful act. The law is there and he can’t escape it by making new excuses. His tenure ends in May and that’s it.”
