Government agencies must restrain from excessive spending-President Hamid Karzai

President KarzaiPresident Hamid Karzai urged ministries and other government agencies to avoid excessive expenses.

The decree was made available to all the ministries and government agencies through the presidential newsletter.

The implementation of the decree will be supervised by the Secretariat of the Council of Ministers, according to the President.

“Government must avoid additional costs such as stationery, maintenance, logistics, and other basic needs,” said President Karzai.

With the implementation of this decree, foreign trips of the ministry officials would also be limited.

The decree further requires government agencies to refrain from buying expensive vehicles.

This comes as the Bureau and Secretariat of Council of Ministers are considering auditing the number of vehicles purchased by the ministries.

President Karzai had previously issued a decree on the implementation of good governance in the ministries.

The resulting increase in the cost of housing has hurt poorer, non-property owning Iranians, the putative beneficiaries of Ahmadinejad’s populist policies.
