Co-Founder of Taliban Mullah Baradar will lead Afghan

Taliban's co-founder Mullah Baradar will lead a new Afghan government set to be announced shortly. On Friday, sources in the Islamist group said as its fighters battled forces loyal to the defeated republic in the Panjshir Valley north of Kabul.

However, the new government's most immediate priority should be to beat off the economy's collapse, grappling with drought and ravages of a conflict that killed an estimated around 240,000 Afghan people.

Three sources said.

Baradar, who will head the Taliban's political office, will join by Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, the son of late co-founder Taliban Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai, and Mullah Omar, in senior positions in governments,

One of the Taliban officials told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

"All top leaders have reached Kabul, where preparations are in final stages to announces the new government in afghanistan,"

Another Taliban source said

Haibatullah Akhunzada, the Taliban supreme religious leader, will focus on governance and spiritual matters within the framework of Islam.

The Taliban, which captures Kabul on 15 August after sweeping across most of the country, have faced confrontations in the Panjshir Valley, where heavy fights and casualties have been reporting.

Several Taliban fighters of regional militia rest of the government's armed forces have massed in the rocky valley under Ahmad Massoud, the son of Ahmad Shah Massoud. He was the former commander of Mujahideen.

Efforts of negotiation and settlement appear to have shattered down, with each side blaming the other side for the failure of negotiation.

While the Taliban has spoken of their desire to form a consensus government, a source close to the terrorist movement said the interim government now being formed would consist solely of Taliban members.

The source added that it would comprise 25 ministries with a consultative council, or shura, of 12 Muslim scholars.

Also being planned within six to eight months is a Loya jirga, or grand assembly, bringing together elders and representatives across Afghan society to discuss a constitution and the structure of the future government, the source said.

All the sources expected the interim government's cabinet to be finalized soon but differed from when some said it would be settled later on Friday. In contrast, others felt it would take until the middle of next week.
