Recently, Prime Minister Dahal declared that Local bodies elections are an urgent need of the country. Yet there appears to be no immediate chance of elections being held.
It is known to all that the three layers of elections- namely local bodies, regional/state level and the Federal Elections will all have to be held before 21st January 2018. It is mandatory and the constitution does not permit any extension.

Having negotiated a truce with HIG and settled on the peaceful terms of Hekmatyar’s reintegration into Afghan civil society, the government of President Ashraf Ghani is sure to welcome the news.
