New Information Minister Proposed for Afghanistan

April 25, 2006
Kabul –

Radio Free Europe reports that this week the Afghan Independent Journalists Union proposed Sayyed Hosayn Sancharaki to be the new minister of information, culture, and tourism. On April 20 the lower house of the national assembly rejected the president’s nominee, Sayyed Makhdum Rahin; the current information minister. Rahin has had conflicts with the conservative clergy over media limits. It is believed by the journalists union that Sancharaki for minister will be a leap towards democratization.
