A delegation will soon be appointed to assess ethnic balance in the leadership of government institutions, Afghanistan's Second Vice-President Mohammad Sarwar Danish said on Friday.
He said that steps have been taken to ensure equitable participation of ethnic groups in management and leadership of executive branch of the country, however, “we are too far from reaching target of real equitability.”
According to the official, a plan is being worked out on how to induce fresh reform in this regard and that a delegation will be tasked to assess ethnic groups’ share in the government leadership at the levels of deputy ministers and directors.
Speaking at a ceremony to commemorate 26th anniversary of death of Jihadi figure Sadeq Neeli, the official warned that divisions among ethnic groups would lead the country into chaos.
He called on political leaders to resort to understanding and convergence and avoid stoking ethnic tensions.
“In fact, those who consciously or unconsciously sow the seeds of ethnic hate will affect their own people,” he said.
He said that there will be no sustainable peace and stability in Afghanistan without ensuring social justice
