Nov 23, 2014
The Civil Society and Human Rights Network of Afghanistan (CSHRN) is pleased from extensive and active participation of Bamyan people in the 2014 Afghan elections for electing their representatives for the provincial council of Bamyan province.
Election is one of the main principles of democracy in which people carry out their major responsibilities through casting their votes for choosing prominent representatives who will represent the wills of the citizens.
Provincial councils are democratic institutions in which its members change “power” into “legitimate authority” via playing significant and constructive role. Presence of such honest and accountable individuals in institutions that represent the will of the citizens will guarantee Dynamism and efficiency of these institutions and will also have a direct impact on the satisfaction of citizens and sustainable legitimacy of the system.
The honorable members of the provincial council of Bamyan province have proven the democratic capacity and civil will through Electing Ms. Taiba Khawari as the head of the provincial council of Bamyan province and recorded the pride of electing the first woman for the presidency of the provincial council, by the name of the ancient Bamyan province.
The Civil Society and Human Rights Network of Afghanistan considers the selection of Ms. Taiba Khawari to this position, as a great and practical measure for strengthening women’s right in the country and hope it will be an auspicious start for strengthening women’s role and their real participation in the society.
