The vital role of provincial councils in promoting transparency and accountability in local government was stressed at a UN-backed TV debate in Asadabad, the provincial capital of eastern Kunar province.


A four-member panel -- including the head of the Kunar provincial council along with representatives from the Department of Women’s Affairs, the governor’s office and the Kunar Civil Society Network -- discussed provincial council responsibilities and the well-being of the province.
The pre-recorded programme was broadcast on Asadabad-based Zala TV and Radio to an estimated audience of 550,000 people throughout the province and neighbouring areas.
