KABUL (Pajhwok): New commissioners on the Independent Election Commission (IEC) and the Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) were sworn-in on Tuesday after their appointment.
The president by issuing two separate decrees has appointed Najibullah Ahmadzai, Abdul Qader Quraishi, Maleha Hassan, Wasima Badghisi, Maazullah Dawlati, Rafiullah Baidar and Gul Ajan Abdul Badi Sayyad as IEC commissioners and Gulam Dastagir Hidayat, Abdul Basir Faez, Ali Reza Rohani, Humaira Haqmal and Abdul Aziz Aryae as IECC commissioners.

President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah jointly interviewed the candidates and agreed on appointment of seven IEC members and five IECC members.
Electoral reform was one of the unity government agreement’s main points and the introduction of the commissioners to run the two electoral bodies is part of the agreement that followed disputed presidential election in 2014.
