Former Afghan President talks about the powers of a leader "Taliban" Identifies who is responsible for the failure to consolidate the legacy system

Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani described Taliban leader Haibatullah Akhundzadeh as a man who does not wield the power of his predecessor, Mullah Omar.

We compared the name of the Taliban leader to the respectful phrase “sahib,” Ghani said in a TV interview: “Mawlawi Sahibullah Akhundzadeh in the Taliban does not have the absolute power that Mullah Omar had.”

The former Afghan president criticized the former US presidential envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, accusing him of a political split among the Afghan political elite. They had relationship problems due to the latter giving up his Afghan and Islamic identity.”

As for the failure to consolidate the Afghan state he headed, which was overthrown by the Taliban, Ghani saw his responsibility as Abdullah Abdullah, the former head of the High Council for National Reconciliation.
