Provnincial Councils

Nangarhar PC Ludin April 30 2014CIPE conducted an interview with Nangarhar Provincial Council member Dr. Abdulqahar Ludin on the impact of CIPE’s training program for provincial council members. Since participating in the training program, which focused on topics including corruption, the informal economy, democratic governance, and advocacy, the Nangarhar Provincial Council has undertaken several local anticorruption initiatives. Dr. Ludin told CIPE, “Before we attended CIPE’s training seminars about democracy and democratic governance, most of our councilors were unaware that the establishment of provincial councils and their election is the result of democracy and that democracy has given them a chance to run for the position and be elected as a representative of the public.”
