Dr. Ashraf Ghani, Afghanistan former finance minister in Hamid Karzai’s government and a possible presidential candidate for up coming election has criticized Karzai for weak leadership and bad management. American educated, Ghani was one of the first few high educated intellectuals who joined post Taliban government and worked in US backed Karzai cabinet. However, after serving for a couple of years as the minister of finance he resigned.
Many Afghans have gathered in Afghanistan and abroad to ask him run for office and he “seriously considered” the suggestion. Now as Karzai is extremely unpopular among Afghans, he is the most qualified person for the job.
