JI Coordination Council welcomes approval of Noor’s resignation

Dec 22, 2017 - 14:19

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Coordination Council of Jamiat-i-Islami (JI) party has welcomed the approval of former Balkh Governor Atta Mohammad Noor’s resignation and demanded self-proclaimed power centres within and outside the government to be dismantled.

President Ashraf Ghani approved the resignation of Noor, former governor of northern Balkh province, last Monday and appointed Eng. Mohammad Daud as his replacement, according to a statement.

The JI party leadership on Wednesday rejected the approval of Noor’s resignation as and slammed president’s decision. Noor is the Chief Executive of JI.

A statement from the Presidential Palace on Friday said the president met members of the JI Coordination Council on Thursday evening.

Syed Ikramuddin, Qazi Raz Mohammad Daleli, Prof. Rahim Baig Yaqoubi and Lawmaker Ghulam Farooq Majroh spoke on the behalf of the council members during the meeting.

They said JI rendered sacrifices for the security and stability of the country throughout the history and would cooperate for the stability of incumbent system.

They said JI was a nation-wide party where people from every ethnic community existed.

“The self-proclaimed power centres within and outside the government were threat for the security and stability and demanded the president to eradicated them and the JI will support government efforts in this regard,” the JI Coordination Council members said.

They supported government efforts in areas of introducing reforms, eradication of corruption and implementation of mega economic projects.

The president in reply said he had huge respect for JI as it was a nation-wide and inter-Afghan political party.

He said the country lived for forty years in crisis and would be pulled out of the existing crisis within two years with the fresh opportunity available in the Afghanistan interest.

The president said: “All we agree on one agenda which is reforms.”
