Wolesi Jirga rejects 2011 annual accounts of 11 ministries

The lower house of the Parliament summoned 11 ministers who have failed to spend their development budget.

The annual accounts of the ministries were discussed by 18 parliamentary commissions, which planned to summon the ministers who spent less than 50% of their development budgets, according to the Wolesi Jirga Finance and Budget Commissions member Sadiq Ahmad Osmani.

Deputy Speaker Abdul Zahir Qadir, who chaired the session, confirmed that ministers of defence, interior, commerce, energy and water, education, urban development, mines, higher education, counternarcotics and information had been summoned.

In its report on last year’s budget, the commission said in November that Ministries Water and Energy, Education, Urban Development, Interior Affair, Economy, Higher Education, Mines, Commerce and Industries, Counter-Narcotics, Parliamentarian Affair, Defence and Information could not spend even 50 percent of their developmental budgets.

Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission, Afghanistan National Standards Authority, Central Statistics Office, the presidential office, Meshrano Jirga and the National Directorate of Local Governance also failed to use their outlays.

Additionally, the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority, Canalization Department, Breshna Shirkat, High Office of Oversight and Anti-Corruption, Department of Geology and Cartography, Afghanistan Atomic Energy Commission, Independent Human Right Commission and the Commission for the Implementation of Constitution could not utilise half of their funds.
