Promise Background
In 2013, Transparency International's corruption perception index ranked Afghanistan's judicial system as the most corrupt in the entire world. Since then, calls for reform have echoed resounding yet little action has been taken by the central government. Furthermore a survey conducted by Gallup found that 69 percent of Afghans said they do not trust the judiciary. President Ghani had committed to reforming Afghanistan's broken judiciary system as part of his pre-election campaign commitments

Indicators to Measure Progress
  • 1. Policies and procedures for Judicial system reform are identified and developed
  • 2. Judiciary reform process is enacted

The one month timeframe President Ashraf Ghani gave during his inauguration to the Supreme Court to enact reforms and curtail corruption has come and gone. And according to newly appointed Chief Justice Abdul Rashid Rashid, the process of change is well underway. However no official plans for judicial reform by the National Unity Government have been disclosed.
