No pan-Afghan political party, fragmented tribal politics and foreign meddling #Afghanistan #tribe # tribalism #ethnic #conflict #politics #peace-making

Afghanistan has always been an amalgamation of tribal and ethnic identities, delaying the formation of any pan-Afghan political parties. Instead, the Tajik party Jamiat-e Islami, the Uzbek political party, Junbish Milli Islami, the Hazara parties, the fragmented Pashtun parties, and other smaller groups vie for power. Howeve, it was an independent candidate, Ashraf Ghani, who won the 2014 elections, and Hamid Karzai in 2009 and 2004 elections. Tribal politics are in part a problem of resource competition internally, but also a problem of foreign meddling.

My Philosophy

Changing our path ahead begins with an honest assessment of where we are standing today. When our government and controlling stakeholders allow for dialogue, research and real journalism, then we can learn what we are doing right and wrong.
