The experts have also accused the lawmakers of being involved in corruption and interference in government undertakings and into the appointment of people in key posts.

“People expect that influence of lawbreakers particulary government leaderships and the parliament is curbed,” head of lawyers union Abdul Ghayour Barsam said.

The statement comes a few hours after the Wolesi Jirga (lower house of parliament) lawmakers were briefed about the inclusion of Afghanistan into World Trade Organization (WTO).

In this episode of FaraKhabar, host Fawad Aman discusses the topic with Dawa Khan Menapal, deputy presidential spokesman and Abdul Ghafoor Preshan, head of Afghanistan’s Lawyers Union.
