The members of Afghan parliament after 45 leave started their works.
While the members of the parliament were on leave, the country witnessed events and developments which can provide, opportunities for the members of parliament to serve people in better way and meet at least their mirror hopes and aspirations.
Holding Tokyo conference, commitments of Afghan authorities for anti- continuation terrorist attacks, unrest and instability in some eastern parts of the country, persistent artillery form behind Durand Line, continuing discussions on uncompleted duties, are the main issues should be considered in both houses of the parliament.
The people like their representatives in parliament performing productive work, meet the people’s needs and requirements.
One of the most important issues that could be the main priority is anti corruption campaign, an issue which links the future of Afghanistan to the world.
Tokyo conference which was  held in support of Afghanistan, pledged 16 billion dollars within a period of 4 years, but the support commitments by donors deeply related to the way of management of anti-administrative campaign by Afghan government.
When we talk about state responsibilities, parliament is also an organ of the state; therefore, it is required for the members of the parliament.
Not only in finding the factors that cause corruption but in eradication of this evil phenomenon seriously assist the government.
Do their best in mobilizing the people for restoring peace and apart from personal interests, present useful consultations to the government authorities and staff in order to be used in ensuring peace and national unity. On the other hand, the representatives of the people, should raise their voice against persistent rocketing form other side of Durand Lind and for ending such attacks, ask the assistance of other countries parliament specially their Pakistani colleagues, and finally instead of long discussions on a specific issue, concentrate on passing laws which is a vital need for Afghan community.
The people hope, the members of both houses of parliament to start the new round of legislation with full energy and end all suspicious on their activities.
