KABUL: Government officials in northern

Balkh province says that Gen. Mohammad Ajmal Fayiz has been appointed as new

police chief, replacing Gen. Abdul Raqib Mubariz, who was appointed to the post

in mid-March.

During appointing Mubariz as Balkh’s police chief, there

were strong criticism and resistant by the former provincial governor Atta

Mohammad Noor, where according to him it was a breach of agreement between him

and the President Ashraf Ghani.

Noor’s followers showed armed resistant against Mubariz,

while Mohammad Ajmal Fayez, the new acting police chief said Saturday, he would

stand against any powerful individuals from carrying illegal activities. He also

emphasized to take serious actions against Taliban insurgents in the province.

Balkh Governor Ishaq Rahguzar during appointing ceremony, appreciated

interior ministry’s efforts to avoid skirmish during Fayez appointing, saying

he would support him against illegal powerful individuals in the province.

Relationships between Noor and Presidential Palace turned

tense after President Ghani accepted resignation letter tendered by Noor as

Balkh governor.

In that time, he strongly rejected Ghani’s decision, saying

he tendered resignation with some conditions, in which according to him, it did

not meet.

He acted as official governor for almost three months, and

has given very much anti-government remarks, especially President Mohammad

Ashrf Ghani. Eventually, the issue gets done with mediation of high-ranking

Afghan officials.
