The Foreign Relations Commission at the House of Representatives said on Sunday that, after reviewing letters of second citizenship revocation for Noor-ul-Haq Uloomi, Salahuddin Rabbani and Saadat Naderi, a joint committee will decide whether the three cabinet nominees will be considered for appointment.
Of the seven cabinet nominees originally identified by Parliament as holding dual citizenship, a status that gives MPs the right to turn them away on face value, only three men mentioned have had their second citizenships revoked. Noor-ul-Haq Uloomi is nominated for Minister of Interior (MoI), Salahuddin Rabbani for Minister of Foreign Affairs and Saadat Naderi for Minister of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled.
On Saturday, nominees for the Ministry of Water and Energy, and Ministry of Finance presented their platforms to the Wolesi Jirga (Lower House of Parliament) for a confidence vote in becoming the ministers to their designated outlets.
Nominated for the Ministry of Water and Energy by Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah, Abdul Rahman Salahi said that "water resources should be managed with the construction of infrastructure."
