Security concerns: MPs satisfied with Ulumi’s explanation

Security concerns: MPs satisfied with Ulumi’s explanation

Nov 02, 2015 - 11:14

KABUL (Pajhwok): Interior Minister Noorul Haq Ulumi provided satisfactory information about the security situation to the Wolesi Jirga on Monday.

Summoned almost a week ago, the minister fielded a volley of questions about the fall of several districts to the insurgents in recent months.

Ulumi responded to a flurry of questions from lawmakers about the performance of his ministry and the prevailing security environment across the country.

At the end of the session, most of the MP appeared convinced by Ulumi’s explanation of the efforts being made by the Ministry of Interior to control the situation.

Under Article 92 of the constitution, a minister could be summoned to answer questions from legislators if 20 percent of the Wolesi Jirga members sign the summons.

If not convinced by the minister’s explanation, the public representatives may consider withdrawing the vote of confidence granted to him/her under the said article.
