A number of members in National Council declared that National Unity Government (NUG) leaders failed to stand by their commitments and have always deceived Afghan people.

Nine months pass since the formation of new government but its performance does not seem promising to people.

“NUG leaders did not fulfill their commitments that announced during their electoral campaigns,” Muhammad Faisal Sami, member of Meshrano Jirga said.

Most of Afghan people called the national unity government illegitimate for being failed to fulfill commitments.

In recent weeks, concerns over the delays in reforms to the electoral commissions as well as the future parliamentary elections have been increasing.

Many election monitoring organizations, political leaders, analysts and government officials have raised concerns over the National Unity Government’s inability to start implementing reforms to the electoral commissions.

With the delays in reforming the electoral bodies, now the fate of the future parliamentary elections is ambiguity with the affairs regarding the preparations for the elections completely in chaos.

Since its formation, the National Unity Government has come a long way to complete the formation of the unity government and implement the power-sharing agreement which became the basis of the National Unity Government.

However, one of the terms of the agreement is becoming the greatest point of failure for the unity government.

The national unity government was a last-ditch solution to months of post-election gridlock between rival presidential candidates Ghani and Abdullah.

Following a series of allegations of corrupt practices during Afghanistan’s presidential run-off election, the two rivals agreed to a U.S.-brokered power-sharing deal in which Ghani would take over as president and Abdullah would assume a newly created chief executive officer position.

While the power-sharing agreement fast-tracked a resolution to Afghanistan’s historic presidential election, which marked the country’s first-ever democratic transition of power, it left the future governance of the country in question.

As the federal cabinet issue demonstrates, disagreements endure between the president and the chief executive, resulting in delays that could negatively impact the country’s journey toward peace and stability.

If Afghanistan’s political elite further keep silence over the government’s handling of the electoral reforms and the parliamentary elections, there would be no sense of responsibility and accountability from the government and particularly its top leadership. Perhaps it is time for the MPs, politicians as well as government officials to raise pressures for electoral reforms and preparations of the parliamentary elections.
