Afghanistan Crisis: The situation in Afghanistan has become much worse after the Taliban took control. On the one hand, where a ban on aid from abroad is being announced and most countries have vacated their embassies, on the other hand people are trying to escape from there by saving their lives. Meanwhile, Amrullah Saleh, the former First Vice President of Afghanistan, has declared himself the country’s caretaker president. He said that all the leaders are being contacted so that their help and consent can be ensured.
Amrullah Saleh tweeted on Tuesday, “According to the Constitution of Afghanistan, the first Vice President will be the caretaker of the President in the event of his resignation, his death, escape or absence.” He further said- I am currently inside the country and am a legitimate caretaker President. I am contacting all the leaders so that their support and consensus can be reached.
Clarity: As per d constitution of Afg, in absence, escape, resignation or death of the President the FVP becomes the caretaker President. I am currently inside my country & am the legitimate care taker President. Am reaching out to all leaders to secure their support & consensus.
