We respect parliament’s authority, says Ghani

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday said all the three pillars of the state were correlative and their close coordination and cooperation was vital for a stable Afghanistaninfo-icon in future.

In a series of his consultative meetings with parliament members, the president on Saturday met members of the lower house administrative board and commissions’ heads at the Presidential Palace, a statement from the palace said.

The participants of the meeting exchanged views about security and economic situation of the country.

Calling lawmakers’ views as important about national issues, Ghani said: “We would always take your views and suggestions about important subjects.”

The president also said the fight against corruption would be extended to the whole of the country and people’s support was vital in this regard.

Ghani insisted he had huge respect for legitimate rights of the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon and that all the three pillars --- executive, legislative and judiciary --- were correlative and their close cooperation and coordination was vital for stability and future of Afghanistan.

Wolesi Jirga speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi thanked the president over consulting people’s representatives on important issues and said they would fully support the government’s reform and development programs.

A day earlier, a number of lawmakers said the president had warned of dissolving the lower house if lawmakers summoned senior security officials.

However, Shah Hussain Murtazavi, deputy spokesman to the president, said Ghani did not talk about the issue to anyone. He said the president had held more than 30 meetings with parliament members in the past two years.

Cooperation of the three pillars within the framework of the constitution could steer Afghanistan out of current problems and challenges, he said.
