(VOVworld) - Afghan President Ashraf Ghani announced Saturday 16 new names to complete his cabinet nearly two months after parliament rejected two thirds of his proposed ministers. Nearly six months after Ghani’s inauguration and the formation of a "national unity government" with his poll rival Abdullah Abdullah, only eight out of 25 ministerial posts have been filled. The rest were rejected by parliament on technicalities in late January, despite a power-sharing deal agreed between Ghani and Abdullah that was seen as saving Afghanistan from the risk of civil war. The 16 ministers announced Saturday, including 4 women, have not yet been approved by the lower house of parliament.
