Currently, there are 35000 village development councils across the country. Given the need for establishment of district development council, we created the district development councils. The number of district development council differ based on the population of districts.

Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation & Development has been able to create 389 district development council across the country. All districts of Afghanistan except 14 districts of Paktia province has district development councils. These 14 districts of Paktia province are insecure. Therefore, Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation & Development hasn’t been able to create district development councils in these 14 districts.”
Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation & Development has given office and office equipment for 300 district development councils.
At the end of the meeting programs advisor and Head of Capacity Building Department of Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation said that they are ready to assist the electoral commissions in districts and villages through the villages and districts development councils.
