Slap in the face for Karzai

Afghan president has 17 of 24 cabinet nominees rejected

by

Afghan president Hamid Karzai had 17 of 24 of his cabinet appointees rejected by MPs. After the unrest surrounding Karzi’s fraudulant August election win, the Parliament is looking to force him to be less corrupt. All of the nominees who were deemed too partisan, were denied. “I think, unfortunately,” said MP Fawzia Kufi, “that the criteria were either ethnicity or bribery or money.”
