Afghanistan’s former interior minister Ali Ahmad Jalali could be the country’s next president as the Taliban reached the gates of Kabul, ready to take charge of the country while incumbent President Ashraf Ghani found himself increasingly isolated in the fight against the Islamic Emirate. Ali Ahmad Jalali was born in 1944. He is is an Afghan politician, diplomat, and academic who served as the Minister of Interior from January 2003 after USA Invasion of Afghanistan to September 2005. He has also been a distinguished professor at the Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies (NESA) at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C in the United States of America.
According to a highly placed Afghan official with direct knowledge of the scorching pace of developments, Jalali is a compromise candidate who is acceptable both to the Afghan government and the Taliban. As of Sunday afternoon, Jalali was being flown from Washington, where he currently lives and works at the National Defense University, to Kabul, the official said. Jalali has worked closely with top most US Officials in different administrations including that of President Bush, Barack Obama and the Trump administration.
“The rapid fall of Afghanistan within two weeks has a lot to analyze.
“This brings to mind an old military adage,” Jalali added in another tweet, saying, “Those who governed well did not arm; those who were armed well did not draw battle lines; those who drew battle lines well did not fight; those who fought well did not lose; those who lost well did not perish.”
Taliban’s Mohammed Abbas Stanekzai and Mullah Baradar, top leaders of the Islamic Emirate headquartered in Qatar who have been in negotiations with the Americans and Afghan representatives in Doha this past year, reached Kabul Sunday amid heavy deployment by the USA Special Forces.
They were received by the head of the High Council for National Reconciliation group, Dr Abdullah Abdullah, indicating an acceptance by the Afghans as well as the US of a grim reality. Dr. Abdullah is currently the Chief executive Officer of Afghanistan having secured that position after a USA Backed negotiation between him and President Ashraf Ghani.
The arrival of the Taliban leaders is, of course, a sign of preparation to take over Kabul, the Afghan official said, but Afghan negotiators are also holding out on the kind of takeover.Dr Abdullah is likely to head the negotiating team, as he has been doing during the Doha talks; he clearly knows the Taliban the best.
