Massoud said that the National Unity Government (NUG) has in the past nine months made little progress and is in fact working against the people's wishes. President Ashraf Ghani and the CEO, Abdullah Abdullah have been busy negotiating a power share deal but have been unable to manage the country's political needs which has led to minimum progress being made. Massoud also showed concern over the formation of new political opposition fronts against the NUG. He has labeled the current situation in the country as critical. "Our view is that an emergency Loya Jirga must be called. This must happen now, and everyone must decide what happens. That way a real National Unity Government will be formed," said Massoud.(20150524)
