The decision was made during the cabinet meeting. The Independent Directorate of Local Governance has been instructed to create the new posts, presidential spokesman Sediq Sediqi said in a press conference.
On new cabinet formation, Sediqi said that President Ghani’s list of nominees was ready and they were waiting for Abdullah’s list.
Some MPs criticized delay in referring the nominees to parliament for approval, as acting ministers carry out illegal works.
Others accused the administrative panel of agreeing to the process to begin after parliament’s summer recess which would start in two weeks.
Sediqi said that the nominees could be finalized within the next two weeks or more as they would be interviewed by the president.
According to laws, ministries cannot be governed by caretakers for more than two months.
