A member of the parliament administrative board is involved in procuring votes of confidence for Ajmal Ahmadi, the acting governor and a nominee of the Da Afghanistan Bank (the central bank of Afghanistan), Rahmatullah Nabil, the former director of the National Directorate of Security (NDS) has revealed on Wednesday.
Nabil, while not revealing the name of the parliament's administrative board member on his Facebook page, said auction on the purchase of votes of confidence in favor of #Ajmal_Ahmadi continued from 09:00 to 10:30 pm last Tuesday.
Nabil termed this act of the administrative board member a corruption saying Afghans cannot remain silent against the level of corruption going on in the parliament.
Ajmal Ahmadi, a former acting minister of industry and commerce, was repeatedly summoned by the lower house for questioning, but he repeatedly remained indifferent to the lower house's decision.
#Nabil reveals this information at a time when #Wolesi_Jirga, the lower house of parliament, cast votes of confidence in favor of all the nominees introduced by the government, except two, earlier this week.
The move raised suspicions that the government had paid a lump sum for the selection of nominees, but, #Hamdullah_Mohib, the National Security Advisor denied the allegations during a meeting with the chairmen of both the lower and upper houses of the parliament and called for enhanced cooperation between the government and the legislature.
