The Taliban are all set to announce their new government in Kabul, in next three days, on the lines of the Iranian leadership, a senior member of the group has said.
"Consultations are almost finalised on the new government, and the necessary discussions have also been held about the cabinet," Mufti Inamullah Samangani, a senior official in the Taliban's information and culture commission said.
The decision comes after dozens of women held a rare protest for the right to work under a new regime that faces enormous economic hurdles and deep public mistrust.
In the new set-up, Akhundzada will be the Supreme Leader of the Taliban government.
“Mullah Akhunzada will be the leader of the government and there should be no question on this,” he said, pointing the fact that the president will work under his oversight.
Samangani said that governors will control the provinces, while the district governors will be in charge of their respective districts.
The Taliban has already appointed governors, police chiefs, and police commanders for provinces and districts. However, the name of the new governance system, national flag, and national anthem are yet to be finalized, he further added.
