Even Karzai Can’t Unseat Lawmakers

Even Karzai Can’t  Unseat Lawmakers

KABUL - Leader of the coalition to support enforcement of law on Thursday warned that it wouldn't tolerate any sort of change in the structure of the parliament. Abdul Zaher Qadir, MP and leader of the coalition to support enforcement of law, said the House of Representatives enjoys the support of the international community and stressed that collapse of the parliament would mean the collapse of the government.

Yesterday Afghan President Hamid Karzai in a decree gave full authority to Independent Election Commission (IEC) and assigned the IEC to have a final say in the parliamentary tensions issue.
The result of the parliamentary elections would remain the same as announced by the IEC, Abdul Zaher Qadir said.

"There is no difference between members of the parliament. We are all representatives of people," Abdul Zaher Qadir said. Leader of the coalition said that the coalition has enough support of the people all across the country and will fully support the parliament.

"You were just a restaurant owner in the United States and we cast vote and chose you as president of Afghanistan. We are also able to take our votes back," Abdul Zaher Qadir said.

Afghan parliament's second secretary, Ahmad Behzad, said: "I want to tell Mr Manawi very clearly that he is not the Rafsanjani of Afghanistan. The Independent Elections Commission has already announced its decision all the world knows it. So it should never change its decision under any kind of pressure."
