Taliban appoint deputy ministers in Afghanistan government, all men

0

The Taliban on Tuesday announced a list of deputy ministers that did not name any women, despite international outcry when they presented their all-male cabinet ministers earlier this month.

The list was presented by government spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid at a news conference in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. The list of deputy ministers indicates that the Taliban have not been hit by international criticism and are doubling down on their current hardline path, despite early promises of inclusivity and upholding women’s rights.

Taliban government spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid defended the latest additions to the cabinet at a news conference on Tuesday, saying it included members of ethnic minorities, such as the Hazaras, and women could be added later. The Taliban have modeled their current cabinet as an interim government, suggesting change was still possible, but did not say whether elections would ever be held.
