“Consultations are almost finalized on the new government, and the necessary discussions have also been held about the cabinet. The Islamic government that we will announce will be a ... model for the people. There is no doubt about the presence of the Commander of the Faithful (Akhunzada) in the government. He will be the leader of the government and there should be no question on this,” Samangani said.
Meanwhile, according to unconfirmed data, the next government also includes the prime minister and a person who will occupy this position will work under the control of Akhundzada. He will be the leader, not the president of Afghanistan.
“Below him there will be a prime minister or a president that will work under his oversight,” political analyst Mohammad Hasan Haqyar said.
The Taliban has already appointed governors, police chiefs, and police commanders for provinces and districts.
As we reported, the leadership of the far-right Taliban movement has passed to the final stage of the formation of the new government of Afghanistan after the withdrawal of the U.S. troops.
On August 15, the Taliban militants seized Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said that he had left the country to avoid bloodshed as the Taliban entered the capital Kabul. Members of the diplomatic missions of the Western countries and their staff consisting of locals did not evacuate and they stay in the capital airport, where chaos was observed.
On August 31, the U.S. withdrew its forces from Afghanistan. According to Pentagon, over the nearly 20 years of its presence in Afghanistan, the United States has lost more than two thousand people.
