MEHWAR: Political Parties Call For Caretaker Govt
President Ashraf Ghani’s former National Security Advisor and a leading presidential candidate Mohammad Hanif Atmar at a gathering on Monday called the continuation of the incumbent government "illegitimate" and made some offers to the head of the state.
Addressing a group of presidential candidates, Atmar said the nation and the candidates are awaiting President Ghani's decision after May 22 which he said is the end of the National Unity Government's term according to the Constitution.
Atmar said the country will face a crisis if the incumbent government continued its term after May 22.
He reiterated that Ghani's term has ended and the continuation of his term will create a crisis in the country and the president will be held responsible for that.
Atmar offered President Ghani to be head of a caretaker government but quit from his candidacy in the upcoming elections.
In this episode of Mehwar, host Yaser Abrar discusses the topic with Ahmad Wali Massoud, a presidential candidate.
