Taliban to Hold the Great Council: NRF Questions Its Legitimacy, Calling it Tribal Approach

The National Resistance Front (NRF) says the Taliban have formed a commission to convene the Great Council also known as the Loya Jirga, adding that they are trying to gain international legitimacy through this “tribal approach.”

The front tweeted on Monday that the governance approach that Taliban has adapted is wrong and will never lead to a dignified government. The only way to regain the dignity is to resist the Taliban and form an election-based government.

Recently, Shahabuddin Delawar, the Taliban’s head for the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, said that “the Loya Jirga will be convened and all Afghans will be included.”

According to him, the Loya Jirga will be attended by Afghans who take part in peace, security and the establishment of the system and for the progress of Afghanistan.

Earlier, former President Hamid Karzai called on the Taliban to hold a Loya Jirga to gain internal legitimacy and international recognition.

According to many scholars and critics, holding a Taliban-dominated Loya Jirga will not solve any problem, and the only way to gain legitimacy is to go to the direct votes of the people.
