The formation of a new Afghanistan government by the Taliban, which was scheduled to be announced on Friday, has now been postponed by a day, according to the spokesman of the insurgents Zabiullah Mujahid.
Mujahid said the announcement about the formation of the new government will now be made on Saturday, i.e. September 4.
According to sources, Chairman of Taliban’s Political Office, Doha, Qatar Mulla Abdul Ghani Baradar is likely to be the head of the Taliban Government.
“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.
Meanwhile, the Taliban on Thursday released a video of its suicide bombers taking part in a parade at an undisclosed location in Afghanistan.
In the viral video, the suicide bombers were seen carrying the Taliban flag, and being referred to as ‘martyrdom-seekers squadron’.
The parade also showcased suicide vests, explosives, guns and rockets. Also part of the weaponry that was displayed were mines, car bombs and yellow barrels.
