It has 12 administrative units including its provincial capital, Qalat. Its provincial council has nine members with three of them are female.

QALAT (PAN): Residents of Zabul vehemently complained the province was experiencing deteriorated state of rampant insecurity, unemployment, closing down of schools and administrative corruption.
Mohammad 26 who hails from Shinkai district identified unemployment as the problems haunting residents of his town. In his chat with Pajhwok Afghan News, he said the biggest problem of concern for the people was growing insecurity. He said insecurity was halting development activities, triggering youth of the province to go to Pakistan for work.  

QALAT (PAN): People of the volatile Zabul demanded the government was direly needed to enhance security, good governance and ensure early completion of rehabilitation projects with more focus on education sector.
Abdul Haleem, resident of Daichopan district said the residents had been demanding strict security in the province, adding that development of the province was directly related to the improved law and order.

QALAT (PAN): Zabul residents said the province was experiencing lawlessness and poor security with most of the militants were infiltrating from the other side of the border.
“There is no security problems during the winter season but law and order gets deteriorate as the weather gets warmer. The banning of riding of motorbikes by the government helped control Taliban activities to great extend but the province sometime witnesses sporadic attacks,” the residents added.

QALAT (PAN): Officials and residents of Zabul have conflicting views regarding the implementation of development projects in the province.
Officials said rehabilitation projects were implemented in different parts of the province while residents of the province categorically rejected the officials’ view point.   
The residents said development projects could not be extended to far-flung areas of the province. But officials said completion of various projects brought visible changes in the lives of the people.
