Unconstitutional claims to trigger crisis, warns Danish

Unconstitutional claims to trigger crisis, warns Danish

Feb 18, 2018 - 10:40

KABUL (Pajhwok): Vice-President Sarwar Danish says the national identity of Afghans has been defined in the constitution, urging political parties to respect the law under all circumstances.

During a ceremony marking the 29th anniversary of the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, the VP said adoption of the constitution after decades of war was no mean achievement.

He added the Afghan national identity had been explained clearly in the constitution. The government and the opposition should respect the basic law as a red line, he stressed, saying unconstitutional claims could push the county into chaos.

The law was the product of national consensus, Danish noted and it can certainly be said the current constitution is like as string and chin linking all the parties and groups of great nationalism and nothing out of the chin.

Fazal Hadi Muslimyar, Meshrano Jirga chairman, supported the speech of the second vice-president on respect for the constitution and national identity. He said the law must be enforced.

A vast majority of the people supported the national interest as enunciated in the basic law, he said, urging government leaders to sort out their differences.

Protection of the core national interest should be given top priority, the Senate chairman concluded.
