Naseer Ahmad Durrani, the Afghan minister of rural rehabilitation and development, has recommended one of his advisers two times to president for new posts.
Documents obtained by 1TV showed that the minister recommended his adviser to the president for appointment in the post of financial and administrative deputy at one time and then for the post of director of policy and planning at the ministry.
However, he gets both the requests rejected by the Administrative Office of the President.
The ministry also requested salary privileges for two security personnel.
The post of deputy minister for financial and administrative at MRRD remains hangs in uncertainty after the president suspended Atiqullah Khawasi over misuse of authority.
Minister Durrani has made recommendations to the president for the posts for at least seven times, but all were rejected.
This comes as three Afghan ministries – for mines, frontiers and information and culture – are being run by caretakers. Seven more ministers have been disqualified by the parliament.
Dawa Khan Minapal, the deputy spokesman for Afghan president, however, said that the government would soon introduce nominee ministers for parliamentary approval.
