Promise Background
In Afghanistan's Constitution the election municipal positions are covered in Article No. 141: “To administer city affairs, municipalities shall be established. The mayor and members of municipal councils shall be elected through free, general, secret and direct elections. Matters related to municipalities shall be regulated by law." Municipalities still function under outdated legislation enacted in 2000, which appoints municipal positions instead of electing them. Ghani promised to promote municipal elections as part of his 2014 presidential campaign.

Indicators to Measure Progress
  • 1. Municipal elections dates and Elections Policies and procedures established
  • 2. Municipal elections held
  • 3. Municipality positions elected

 Status Details:   No official reports on progress towards this promise have been recorded.
