3. Biodata:
hakimi_waqifAbdul Waqif Hakimi Abdul Shukur Waqif Hakimi said that he and others had written changes to six articles for the Constitution in Dec. 2003  that were accepted in the coordination committee, but did not appear in the revised constitution distributed later. Hakimi charged that the changes that were ignored, included those creating a High Council to implement the new constitution, making Uzbek an official language along with Dari and Pashtu, setting up an interim parliament until elections could be held, prohibiting those who have ever held dual citizenship from becoming ministers, prohibiting ministers from having foreign wives and giving parliament the authority to print new currency.

He accused the then Reconstruction Minister Mohammed Amin Farhang and Da Afghanistan Bank Head Anwarul Haq Ahadi of removing the agreed upon changes and substituting their own wording. "By doing this they are playing with the knowledge of the delegates in the committees," Hakimi said.(Dec. 2003)

Salahuddin Rabbani, a son of killed High Peace Council chairman Prof. Burhanuddin Rabbani, was elected as acting head of the Jamiat-i-Islami Afghanistan party on 20111003, said Waqif Hakimi, the spokesman for the party. (20111004)
