Afghan divide: Abdullah Abdullah add fuel to fragile political Government

 

Afghan Chief Executive Dr Abdullah Abdullah has castigated President Ashraf Ghani as unfit for the presidency, in a public outburst highlighting bitter internal divisions that threaten their power-sharing agreement. Abdullah’s comments come ahead of a September deadline for the government to honour the fragile agreement signed after the fraud-tainted presidential election in 2014, which both leaders claimed to have won. By then the government is expected to enact sweeping election reforms and amend the constitution to create the position of the chief executive for Abdullah. Observers say that the deadline is unlikely to be met, effectively tipping Afghanistan into a political crisis. “Electoral reforms were one of the promises made when the national unity government was formed. Why weren’t these reforms brought?” Abdullah told a small gathering in Kabul late Thursday. “Mr president, over a period of three months you do not have time to see your chief executive face-to-face for even an hour or two? What do you spend your time on? “There are arguments in every government but if someone does not have patience for discussion, then he is unfit for the presidency.” The acrimony comes as the Taliban are threatening to overrun Lashkar Gah, capital of the strategic poppy-growing southern province of Helmand. Abdullah also accused Ghani of monopolising power and not consulting him over key government appointments.  Under the US brokered deal to end the deadlock, Abdullah Abdullah was given the seat of the Chief Executive but we have seen that he has never been satisfied with the powers entrusted to him under this deal. Given the rivalry between the two camps, apprehensions were also raised at the very outset about the Afghan power sharing deal and the unfit arrangement weaved by John Kerry. The outburst of Abdullah Abdullah against Ghani has actually exposed how far they are apart on different matters. This situation is worrisome and ultimate sufferers of this will be none other than the Afghan people who already have suffered a lot because of decades of conflicts and civil war. In the best interest of their people, we expect that sanity will prevail within the top echelons of Afghan government and instead of holding grudges against each other, they will sit together to sort out the differences. At this point of time when efforts are being made for intra Afghan reconciliation on the part of different countries, it is imperative that those ruling the country first maintain unity within their ranks as the cracks will further push the country towards chaos and anarchy and add to the woes and miseries of the people. It is up to the Afghan unity government whether it wants to steer the country towards disarray or is really interested to make peace a reality. It is time the Afghan leaders purely focus on the peace process and also trust the efforts being made in this regard by Islamabad, as peace in the fraternal country in fact is vital to ensure peace and stability in Pakistan itself.
