Kabul
International and domestic pressure on the Taliban is increasing. The terror group is now in its final stages of forming the government. Sources and media reports are claiming that Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar may head the new Afghan government. A Taliban spokesman announced on Friday that the group would now form the government on Saturday. The Taliban government is going to face many challenges.

All senior leaders reached Kabul
Talking about the key faces of the government, Mullah Baradar, the head of political affairs of the Taliban, along with Mullah Mohammad Yacoub, son of Taliban co-founder Mullah Omar, and Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai may get big responsibility. The Taliban official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that all senior leaders had reached Kabul and preparations for government formation were in their final stages.

25 Ministries and 12 Muslim Scholars
Another Taliban source said the Taliban’s Supreme Leader Haibatullah Akhundzada would oversee religious affairs and governance in line with Islam. If sources are to be believed, only members of the group will be included in the Taliban government. The source said it would comprise 25 ministries, with 12 being an advisory council or shura of Muslim scholars. Everyone is making a strong claim of government formation. However, people have different opinions regarding its time limit. Some are anticipating government formation on Saturday and some are expecting it next week.

Government will be formed on the lines of Iran
A senior Taliban member said the group was ready to announce the formation of a government in Kabul on the lines of the Iranian leadership, with the group’s top religious leader Mullah Hebatullah Akhunzada as the highest authority in Afghanistan. It has been more than two weeks since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan. Mufti Inamullah Samangani, a senior official in the Taliban’s Information and Cultural Commission, said the consultations on the new government were almost complete and necessary discussions had also been held about the cabinet.

In Iran, the supreme leader is the country’s highest political and religious authority. His rank is higher than that of the President and he appoints the heads of the army, government and judiciary. The decision of the Supreme Leader in the political, religious and military matters of the country is final. He said Mullah Akhunzada would be the leader of the government and there should be no question on it.

Mulla Akhunzada will become the Supreme Leader
He indicated that the President would work under his supervision. Mullah Akhunzada is the Taliban’s top religious leader and has been working in a mosque in the Kachlaq area of ​​Balochistan province for 15 years. Samangani said that under the new government structure, provinces would be headed by governors, while district governors would be responsible for their respective districts. The Taliban has already appointed governors, police chiefs and police commanders for provinces and districts.

Many challenges before the Taliban government
Panjshir has become a snarl for the Taliban, who have captured almost the whole of Afghanistan. On Friday, the group claimed occupation of the valley and said that Ahmed Masood and Amrullah Saleh had left Afghanistan. At the same time, Saleh rejected this claim and said that he still has possession of Panjshir. After the formation of the government, many big challenges like Panjshir are going to come before the Taliban. The country’s economy is going downhill, many parts are in drought-like conditions and hundreds of thousands of Afghans have died in the ongoing conflict.
