It is the most important constitutional forum; in reality, the modern state of Afghanistan owes its existence from this forum. Through a decade or more of democracy and years as a republic, Afghanistan still respects its Loya Jirgas tradition to the point that even an elected head of state defers to it. Jirgas have brought tribal leaders together to address national crises in Afghanistan since at least 1709. Why Loya Jirga is in news? Afghanistan has begun a three-day ‘Loya Jirga’ to determine whether or not to release approximately 400 Taliban militants who have been accused of “serious crimes.” 2 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Cancel the best answer Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
