The Office of the President, ARG Palace, said Anisa Rasooli has been nominated to obtain membership of the high council of Supreme Court of Afghanistan.
According to a presidential decree, a woman can be appointed as member of the Supreme Court in the light of Hanafi School, considering that her testimony is accepted apart from cases of capital punishment.
In another presidential decree, Abdul Shakoor Mahjoor has also been nominated to obtain the membership of the high council of Supreme Court of Afghanistan.
The high council of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan has nine members who are elected and introduced to the Afghan parliament in accordance with the constitution of Afghanistan.
Ms. Rasooli was appointed as the first female member of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan a year after the formation of the government of national unity.
The move was widely welcomed but the lawmakers in the Lower House of the Parliament did not cast enough votes to approve her as first female member of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan.
She has graduated from the law faculty of Kabul University and was serving as Appellate Court judge ahead of her nominate for the Supreme Court.
