PULI KHUMRI (PAN): Complaining of living in a state of chaos and insecurity, people of Baghlan said the growing insecurity as compared to the past could be a conspiracy hatched by some vested interests in an attempt to sabotage the upcoming elections.
Considered as one of the most important province, Baghlan is a cross road between Kabul and six northern provinces of the country. The Baghlani Jadid district is considered among the insecure districts of the province from where insurgents launch attacks in other parts of the province and return back to their safe heavens.  

PUL-I-KHUMRI (PAN): People of northern Baghlan linked greater unity among various ethnic groups as a way forward to ensure development of the province.
 A religious scholar Maulvi Muhammad Aman said division among people on ethnic basis and the rights of minority groups were the problems being confronted to the province.
He said most of the people were locked in personal rivalries and animosity, which lasted for several decades and they were in a useless competition among one another.

CHARIKAR (PAN):Parwan province is located 60 kilometers to the north of Kabul, sharing borders with Kapisa, Baghlan, Panjsher, Maidan Wardak, Kabul and Bamyan provinces. The province has 10 administrative units including the provincial capital.
Government employee says he has lost trust in elections:

CHARIKAR (PAN): Amid dilapidated condition of agriculture and education sectors, residents of restive Parwan are in grip of growing insecurity and complete breakdown of law and order.    
ParMuhammad Shafiq, a resident of Bagram districts said unemployment, insecurity, administrative corruption were among the major problems being faced by the people of the province. 

CHARIKAR (PAN): The residents of central Parwan province demand of the government to explore job opportunities, disband armed groups and tackle rampant administrative corruption.
Abdul Saboor, a resident of the capital city of Charikar urged the government to ensure rule of law and merit policy in recruitment for government jobs.
Talking to Pajhwok Afghan News, he complained most of the university and school graduates were facing unemployment amid growing administrative corruption.

Pakita is located in southeast of the capital Kabul, which has 14 administrative units including the provincial capital. Provincial council of the province has nine members, including two women.
The report contains view of people from different parts of the province. The people expressed mixed reaction with regard of the country future with special reference the upcoming presidential ballots, peace process and the looming process of foreign forces withdrawal from the country.

GARDIZ (PAN): Paktia residents are of the opinion that solution of problems including forests rehabilitation, dams’ construction, electricity, joblessness and security tend to bolster their living standard.
Khaista Jan Ahadi, Paktia provincial council head said electricity provision was extremely important, adding the government should adopt measure to ensure power supply without further delay. Few years back following presidential decree, the electricity from Tajikistan should have been given to Paktia but the ministry failed to ensure its supply, he remarked.

GARDIZ (PAN): The people of the volatile Paktia demanded the government to ensure provision of electricity, construct dams, rehabilitate forests and with special reference enhanced the direly needed security in the province.
They said bolstered security was prerequisite to multiply business activities and create more job opportunities for the jobless youth of the province. Another long standing demand of the residents is that they want their province to be developed at par with other provinces.

BAMYAN (PAN): Most of the people of the province expressed optimism to actively participate in the upcoming elections, but some of the residents preferred to stay away during the ballots due to various problems.
The establishment of voters’ registration centers would cause low participation of people in the elections.
Pajhwok Afghan News conducted interview of as many as 25 women and men of whom only two middle agers said they would not take part because of established rules violations during the process.

BAMYAN (PAN): Residents of Bamyan mentioned their main problems included unemployment, non-existence of electricity, paved roads, health care centers and slow-paced development activities.
Without Yakawlang district, the remaining roads linking other districts with the provincial capital are unpaved. In addition, many villages are without roads with its residents shift their needed items by domestic animals.
Many Bamyani youth were going to foreign countries as a result of growing joblessness and sometimes some families are forced to leave their residences.
