Afghanistan: Nearly 50 officials of the former government including some ministers have returned to the country, said a senior member of the Islamic Emirate, Anas Haqqani.
However, he didn’t name the individuals who have returned to the country.
Earlier, the Islamic Emirate said it had established a commission for the “Return and Communications with Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures.”
Haqqani, who is also a member of the commission, said the method of the commission’s operation has yet to be finalized.
“We have facilitated the grounds. Many officials who worked as ministers and deputy ministers during the former government, they returned,” he said.
This comes as members of the commission for the “Return and Communications with Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures” in a meeting on Wednesday once again stressed the need to facilitate the return of the Afghan influential figures living abroad.
“Those who have a mind of a politician, they first of all want legitimacy for the government, and then an election and then, most importantly, how much did they talk about the future of Afghanistan with the politicians who are inside the country?” said Sayed Ishaq Gailani, head of the National Solidarity Movement of Afghanistan.
After the fall of the former government, many Afghan political leaders and government officials left the country.
