In a meeting with the Women's Committee of the National Coalition of Afghanistan, a number of teachers and housewives from Khairkhana's 315 Section declared their support for Dr. Abdullah and his team. These women said" "We are in a critical transition period that actually defines our future. Therefore, we vote for a team that can define the future for the entire country."

Gulmakai Safi, Chair of the Committee said" "In the last 12 years, we have suffered many problems in the areas of education, economy, social problems and others. Just in the education sector, we have endured many problems. I think that most teachers cannot acquire their position without bribes. Dr. Abdullah is a person that will for sure pay attention to this problem, especially he will work to alleviate problems that women are facing."

 

Ms. Shafiqa Shoja, another member said" "April 5 is the day when your vote defines the outcome for the next five years! We must all go to the polling stations. Do not forget to use your right to vote; go to the poll and cast your vote."

 

Ms. Habiba Amin, another member said" "Dr. Abdullah and his Reform and Partnership team have a very good program for us Afghan women. We want this team to win so that these programs can become a reality."
