The world waits patiently for the Taliban to unveil  the leaders of their new government. There are speculations that their co- founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar will become head of the executive council, and this council will function under the Emirate while sheikh Haibatullah Akhundzada is also expected to be the country's supreme leader. Other vital positions are also expected to be manned by Sirajuddin Haqqani and Mawlawi Muhammad Yaqoub.The latter is the son of the expected head of executive council. It is believed that he would be given a key position of governance.

The Afghan economy is on the brink of collapse and the earlier they announced their government, the better for their citizens. Experts are expecting an inclusive government to help a country already ravaged on multiple fronts:war, rising inflation, food shortage,and droughts.

According to a former Afghanistan government advisor, Torek Farhadi, It was more important to know whether they would share power or not. He further stated that  If they shared power with non- Taliban, their credibility would go up, unlike the Soviet government of 1978 that forged a government that gave you prospects of leadership if you were a communist.

As the world watches with bated breath for the transition in Afghanistan, only time shall tell what type of government awaits Afghans, but one thing is certain; Afghans will not condone a Taliban  only leadership for too long. Hence, it would be wisdom to incorporate competent citizens into vital facets of governance for a better future or risk the birth of opposition groups like the North Resistance Front of Ahmad Massoud.
