Six Ministerial Nominees Present Plans to Parliament

Nominee ministers for women affairs, mines and petroleum, transport, refugees, urban development, and public works presented their plan to the parliament vowing to bring reforms in their relevant institutions if they get a vote of confidence from MPs.

The Lower House of Parliament suspended the vote of confidence in cabinet members on November 24th.

The Parliament’s decision follows remarks by First Vice President Amrullah Saleh at the Geneva meeting about the involvement of a number of members of the lawmakers in corruption.

The House of Representatives has previously warned that it will suspend voting for cabinet members until Saleh submits his evidences and documents to prove his claims.

The remaining members of the cabinet are scheduled to present their plans at subsequent meetings, and then parliament will set up a ballot to approve these officials.
