The House of National Political Parties and Civil and Social Institutions on Thursday said at a press conference in Kabul that the National Unity Government’s (NUG) efforts in the fight against corruption and the provision of security are not enough.

A member of the organization said electoral commission members negligent in their duties to bring about reforms must be brought to justice.

“The electoral commission members must be dismissed and must be prosecuted,” said Mohammad Omar Ayar, a member of the House of National Political Parties and Civil and Social Institutions.

During the press conference the members also criticized government’s inability to bring about peace in the country.

“Pakistan and its allies are not behind the peace [process] in Afghanistan, the government should have a clear stance for peace in the country,” said Nasrullah Falak, a member of the organization.

They raised concerns over the silence of government against corrupt people.

“Government sits quietly over the prosecution of corrupt people, we ask our government, international community and institutions that have valid documents about the corrupt people to see they are prosecuted,” Ayar added.

Securing vulnerable parts of the country, achieving peace, tackling corruption seriously and creating jobs for the people are the National Unity Government’s priorities, the organization said.
