Taliban Add Minorities, Technocrats to Afghan Government, but No Women
KABUL—The Taliban brought some outsiders into their new Afghan government, giving positions to technocrats, businessmen and members of ethnic minorities following widespread criticism that the cabinet was composed entirely of the Islamist movement’s clerics. None of Tuesday’s appointments were in key positions, however, and the government excluded women and politicians who were active in the Afghan republic that was deposed on Aug. 15. A lone representative of the Shiite Hazara minority, which was persecuted when the Taliban were in power before the 2001 U.S. invasion, was made a deputy health minister.
