KABUL (Reuters) – The inauguration ceremony for the elected Afghan President Ashraf Ghani will take place on Monday afternoon, his spokesman said on Twitter, which was pushed back from the morning as originally planned.
"The swearing-in ceremony … will take place in the afternoon," said Sediq Sediqqi, the spokesman on Twitter.
An official who refused to be named said Ghani, U.S. Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, and Ghani's political rival Abdullah Abdullah continued their meetings on Monday morning to prevent two parallel initiation ceremonies.
