THE EFFECTIVENESS OF â€œLOYA JIRGAâ€ IN MAKING THE CONSTITUTION OF AFGHANISTAN
Repalcing the old consitution Â in Afghanistan was generally an essential step forward in the nation building process. The Effectiveness of loya Jirga or Grand Council was Â important to adopt the constitution and to confer legitimacy on it. Consequently, the constitution of Afghanistan which was created by a special Loya Jirga (Grand Council) (13 December 2004- Junuary 2004), was ratified by President Karzai on 24 Jaunuary 2004. Therefore, this paper will provide a basic historical background of Constitutional Loya Jirga. Moreover, the author will highlight the legal framework for the Constitutional Loya Jirga and will focus on the role and Effectiveness of Constitutional Loya Jirga in constitution-making in Afghanistan.
