Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah’s office on Wednesday confirmed that some key elements of the political accord, based on which the National Unity Government (NUG) was formed in 2014, have not been implemented over the past two years.
However, the CEO’s office has expressed optimism that the two leaders will resolve their issues before signing off for the Brussels Summit next month.
Based on the NUG accord, the CEO has to report back on its undertakings to the president, something the critics believe has not happened over the past two years since they formed the NUG.
“It is regrettable to say that the political agreement has not been implemented effectively over the past two years. Many items mentioned in the accord have not been put into practice,” said Jawed Faisal, deputy spokesman for the CEO.
As the key summit on Afghanistan looms, calls for the resolution of disputes between the political establishments has gathered momentum.
“We are heading to Brussels conference, they (Ghani, Abdullah) must demonstrate that they are working together so that the international community trusts them,” said MP Shinkai Karokhail.
“Disagreements between the two leaders is hindering the CEO from reporting to the president,” said MP Farooq Majroh.
In recent weeks, the NUG leaders met at least three times in a bid to resolve their disputes. It is expected that the two leaders reach on a consensus on disputed topics at their next meeting.
