Promise Background
“Afghanistan is perceived to be one of the most corrupt states in the world. A weak assets registration is one of the factors that provide the opportunity for illicit enrichment and embezzlement of aid money and government resources. Asset registration of high ranking officials is essential in the fight against corruption. A properly implemented assets registration and verification system is an effective tool in the fight against corruption and detection of illicit enrichment.” (http://www.iwaweb.org/tmaf/docs/policy_brief_on_asset_and_access_to_info.pdf) According to the article 154 of the Constitution, the President, Vice presidents and other high-ranking government officials must register their assets before starting their duties and also must give accounts of their assets after their tenure." In his pre-election manifesto, President Ghani committed to ensuring that senior public officials would register their assets.

Indicators to Measure Progress
  • 1. Asset registration and verification system is in place
  • 2. Number of senior public officials register their assets
  • 3. Asset registration of senior public officials is available to the public

March 2015:  Out of all former government officials, only former President Hamid Karzai and former Minister of Public Works Najibullah Ozhan have accounted for their assets to the High Office of Oversight and Anti-Corruption (HOAC) following the end of their tenure. From the current government, the HOAC officials said, only the Ministers Foreign Affairs and Mines have so far registered their assets.

HOAC officials have said that many other high-ranking government officials filled faulty asset registration forms at the beginning of their tenure and they didn't provide details of their assets after the end of their incumbency.
