Officer of governor of Kandahar has reported that The Supreme Leader of the IEA has instructed all officials of the government for continued
consultation with religious scholars and well-treatment with the people.

He has also said that the government officials should not hide themselves from the people
and should always ask for their opinions.
Although meritocracy was insisted by previous governments to be considered as principle in government institutions, it was not considered in most government and non-government institutions and experienced and well-qualified figures were appointed to do the job well; therefore, government officials were weak in expending both ordinary and development budgets Meanwhile, Kabul residents have praised recent speech of The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which were mostly insisting on consideration of the meritocracy principle in government institutions. The people also consider meritocracy as key principle in government institutions as it is key towards better future of Afghanistan.
