100 New District Police Chiefs Appointed

New police chiefs were appointed to 100 districts across 29 provinces on Saturday during a ceremony at the Presidential Palace.

President Ashraf Ghani, First Vice President Amrullah Saleh and National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib addressed the ceremony.

Mohib said the police commanders were selected in a transparent process by a committee appointed by Ghani.

He told the commander that they were waging a “just” struggle and their actions would reflect on the country.

Zia Asi, head of the Office of the National Security Council’s Security Sector Development, said that the entire appointment process took 45 working days.

Addressing the new commanders, Ghani said that as they move to the districts, there will be motivation, management, commitment and mobility that will be unparalleled in Afghanistan’s history.

“You have been elected because you believe in the country with all your heart and have made sacrifices. The nation wants commitment and sacrifice, and you are the children of commitment and sacrifice,” Ghani said.

He assured the new commanders that they have the support of the national security and defence officials in their fight against the enemies of the country.
