KABUL (SW) – Sirajuddin Haqqani, Acting Minister of Interior Affairs, has criticized the way appointment of senior officials is taking place in the Islamic Emirate government.

He recently addressed the students at Sheikh Zayed University in Khost, and said that the appointment of non-professionals in professional positions is very painful. Mr. Haqqani asked the students to try to find a way in government offices after graduation.

“It is very painful to see appoint non-professionals in professional positions, and you should try to find a way in government offices after graduation.”

Meanwhile, Mukhtar Ahmad Ahmadi, a resident of Kabul who has a master’s degree in international relations, says that he has repeatedly referred to various offices of the Islamic Emirate and requested to be assigned to departments related to his expertise but he has not yet been able to enter any of these institutions.

“I was barely able to study and get my bachelor’s and master’s degree but I still haven’t been able to get appointed in government offices.”

Khalil Timuri, one of the students in Kabul, says that today, most of the people who have doctorate and master’s degrees are struggling with unemployment.

He added that despite his many requests to enter government institutions he has not succeeded.

However, a number of university professors say that not appointing experts in government departments, on the one hand, can lead to the inefficiency of these departments, and on the other hand, discourage students from making more efforts to improve their knowledge.

Rahim Hossein Hosseini, a professor at one of the private universities in Kabul, in an interview with Salam Watandar, urged the Islamic Emirate to appoint experts in professional departments.

“Not appointing experts in government offices can paralyze government institutions and also discourage students from their efforts. We ask the Islamic Emirate to hire experts in professional departments”.

On the other hand, a source from the Department of Affairs told Salam Watandar that the Islamic Emirate is trying to appoint experts in professional departments. “Islamic Emirate tries to appoint professional and expert people in professional departments. We want young people to try to find jobs in the private sector.”

It should be mentioned that following the return of the Islamic Emirate to power for more than a year, a large number of citizens have lost their jobs in various governmental and non-governmental offices.
