Afghanistan certainly needs a new constitution, said Mohammad Naeem, a spokesman for the Afghan Taliban’s political office, according to Russian satellite news agency RIA Novostag.
“There is no doubt that Afghanistan will have a new constitution,” Naeem said. He said there is a state of emergency in Afghanistan. Asked if the new constitution would be adopted by referendum, Naeem said: “There is a need to ensure that people’s needs are met, to fill the vacuum, and to take other measures later.” But on the whole, a new constitution is needed. ”
The Afghan Taliban have been advancing in the country over the past few weeks and announced their entry into the Afghan capital, Kabul, and the presidential palace later on 15 August. Afghan President Asif Ghani left the country “to avoid bloodshed” on the same day and is currently in the United Arab Emirates.
