History and Biodata

Hizb-e Wahdat-e Islami Millat-e Afghanistan (Islamic Unity of the Nation of Afghanistan)
Leader: Qurban Ali Irfani Postal Address: Left Side, Deh Buri Bus Stop, Kabul, Afghanistan Telephone: 070278131

Hezb-e Wahdat-e Islami-ye Millat (Erfani)
Leader: Qurban Ali ERFANI (Urfani, Irfani)
Led by Qurban Ali Erfani, an instrumental figure in the
establishment of the party and first deputy leader under Karim
Khalili, this party was the fourth split emerging from
Wahdat. A native of Yakawlang district of Bamyan and one of the
founders of Nasr and Hezbe Wahdat, Erfani has always been at the
centre of Hazara politics. His party was registered at the Ministry
of Justice in March 2005. However, despite being regarded as a key founder and veteran of
Hezb-e Wahdat, he has demonstrated little political weight as an autonomous political player.
