A number of electoral monitoring organizations, MPs and critics on Saturday lashed out at the Presidential Palace (ARG) for appointing former election commissioners as President Ashraf Ghani's advisors.

They said this move means government is compensating the former commissioners.

According to reports, Ghani recently issued a decree where he appointed all former members of election commissions as his advisors – thereby safeguarding their privileges and salaries.
