Commentary

Saturday, September 15, 2018

Kabul (BNA) National Unity Government for good governance and passing the current problems and challenges giving great value in to consultations of politicians, knowledgeable people and different public strata and considered as a principal for the improvement of the affairs.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently a number of politicians with great experiences in current and previous governments gathered at residential house of Mr. Sibghatullah Mujadidi a spiritual and jihadi figure discussing the issues like:  the ways of ensuring peace, the process of negotiations with armed oppositions, the political future of the country and exchanged their views on the issues. The participants also insisted on holding transparent national and fair elections and reviewing the security agreement between Afghanistan and America.
This is of great importance as a consultation for the leaders of National Unity Government that a number of politicians and influential figures gather and express their views about reforming, holding national wide elections and the effectiveness or non- effectiveness of security agreements already  signed with other countries.
It should be said that the participants at session at residential house of Mr. Sibghatullah Mujadidi were people who had enjoyed of having high positions in previous   and current governments.
Today criticizing the state is a common issue but it should not be ignored that the present administration has inherited most of the problems from the previous administration. It the government has charged and accused for less working at the first step are the same government officials are responsible who now criticize the unity government and complaints. These honorable should not forget that they themselves have a great role in less working and reduction of people’s trust to the current government and quitting from public court would not be easy.
Also, the less working of the past is the main factor for today’s problems. Therefore it would be better for previous authorities instead delivering criticism extend the hand of cooperation and exchange of experiences.
Consulting and accepting consultations, honoring the opinions of others even from the critics of state is a principal in Islamic and democratic governments.  For this reason the national unity government persistently and regularly holds meetings with jihadi leaders, political parties’ leaders, civil society activists, spirituals, journalists and various public strata for finding a way for overcoming the current problems. Therefore it would be better instead of criticizing the national unity government in non- official meetings, the participants of such meetings present their opinions and demands in consolatory meetings with the government in order to be assessed in an atmosphere of peace and national understanding. We are certain in this way we can meet the expectations of our suffering people and find the way for solution of the problems that threat the upcoming generations of the country.

BNA Director General
