Provincial Governors

In Afghanistan, the provincial governors are appointed by the president.  They are not elected by the people of the province.  There are various political groups that want to change the constitution and allow for the governors to be democratically elected by the people of the province.  It is not uncommon for governors to be removed or moved around frequently by the president.  Because of this, we will make every attempt to ensure the information below is accurate and updated, however, there is no guarantee as the removal or change of a provincial governor is rarely publicized or announced before it happens.
