KABUL (Pajhwok): Abdul Karim Matin has been appointed new governor of southeastern Paktika province, the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) announced on Monday.

President Ashraf Ghani approved the appointment of Karim Matin as governor of the volatile in line with IDLG recommendation, the diectorate’s spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Tawab Ghorzang said Matin had enough experience in local governance, having worked for the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation Development (MRRD), the IDLG and in other higher positions.

Ghorzang views the appointment of Matin as an effective step, hoping the new governor would work diligently for the development and stability of the province.

Matin replaces Mohibullah Samim. A number of Paktika residents, during a recent protest, urged President Ashraf Ghani to dismiss Samim and appoint a new governor.
