According to 1 TV broadcaster, the interim government will involve the president and the prime minister and each of them will have four deputies, including one post taken by a woman. In addition, the document states the need to take into account the “ethnic composition” when making appointments and taking other decisions.

The plan also includes Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s idea to hold the early election, the broadcaster said.

Afghanistan’s Taliban on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020, welcomed a tweet from President Donald Trump in which he promised to have the last of the U.S.’s troops out of Afghanistan by Christmas. If that withdrawal happens, it would be months ahead of schedule and the tweet made no reference to a Taliban promise to fight terrorist groups — a previous pre-requisite for an American withdrawal.

Afghanistan has been in the grip of a violent internal conflict between the official government and the radical Taliban movement, which had taken control of a significant part of the country’s rural area and launched attacks on large cities. The Afghan National Defence and Security Forces have been in charge of counter-terrorism operations across the country.

Though the US-negotiated peace process between the Afghan government and the Taliban kicked off in September 2020, the negotiations are yet to show any results as the violence has only escalated over the past few months.
