The Taliban on [23 September] announced plans to form a commission next year to draft a new constitution.
“The process of forming a new constitution will begin in a few months. We strive to ensure that our government has a constitution, which will be formed by scientists, lawyers and experts from our country,” Zabihullah Mujahid, deputy minister of culture and information of the interim Afghan government, told Sputnik.
Over the process of preparing a new constitution, Mujahid said: “Most likely, this work will begin next year, and the commission will be appointed by our emirate.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the Taliban had announced the expansion of cabinet ministers with no women representation in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
Zabihullah Mujahid said that new members of the caretaker cabinet of the Taliban were announced in an effort to ensure inclusivity by adding “minorities” to the cabinet, TOLO News reported.
