3. Biodata:
Al-haj Khyal Mohammad Husaini Khial Mohammad Hussaini was born  1957 in Andar, Ghazni Province. He was a former Taliban commander.

Khyal Mohammad Husani got 10,747 votes (2.9%)  in Ghazni Province in the Wolesi Jirga (WJ) Elections 2005 and got a seat in WJ.

Committee on Dispatches and Communications

He attempted to run for President in the 2014 election but was unsuccessful. Later, he joined Dr. Abdullah Abdullah's campaign as his 1st Vice President, running against Ashraf Ghani. When Ashraf Ghani was announced as the winner of the elections, Mohammad Khan remained with Dr. Abdullah and became his first deputy when the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) position was created for Dr. Abdullah. The CEO position was created as a compromise to prevent a potential parallel government being setup, and possibly, the division of Afghanistan. Dr. Abdullah's campaign had alleged and even provided evidence that Ashraf Ghani only won the elections as a result of massive fraud.

Khial, a tribal elder, who was a commander of Harakat-e Inqilab-e Islami during the early 1990s before it lost its dominance to the Taleban, has showed increasing interest in securing influence within the Andar ALP. He successfully lobbied for temporary command of the whole Andar ALP to be given to one of his former commanders, Alozai (one name only). Since Alozai was never involved in the uprising, this symbolised Khial’s surprise triumph over Lutfullah Kamran, who had been the best-situated candidate and was supported by the other former MP, Shilgari. Kamran was demoted to deputy. Then the positions of the two were recently switched once again, with Kamran becoming commander and Alozai his deputy. (20130402)
