If I were president: Baz Mohammad Aryubwal

Afghanistan goes to the polls on 20 August for presidential and provincial elections.

BBC News asked people in the country what they would do if they were president.

Baz Mohammad Aryubwal

If I were the president, I would give priority to establishing peace with the Taliban.

Secondly, I would allocate a sizeable capital budget to agriculture and education.

It is very much in the interest of Afghanistan to be agricultural rather than industrial.


We also have the lowest level of education in the region - particularly in comparison with our neighbouring nations.

Finally, I would eradicate corruption and establish an independent judicial body to try corrupt high ranking officials.
