Abdul Sattar SiratAbdul Sattar Sirat (Uzbek)

Who he is: Abdul Sattar Sirat was justice minister almost 30 years ago until the king was deposed in 1973.

What he believes: He was the initial candidate in the former king’s delegation to lead an interim administration in Afghanistan. However, he withdrew his name after reservations were expressed about the ethnic balance of the administration. Pashtun leader, Hamid Karzai - also a close friend of the former king - was chosen instead.
