Afghanistan’s 1964 constitution

Afghanistan’s 1964 constitution was enforced during the regime of King Zahir Shah to transform Afghanistan into a democratic nation and support its socio-economic growth. One of the key features of the constitution is the establishment of two houses of parliament, of which the lower house would be elected through adult suffrage.
The Taliban recently announced that it would temporarily enact the provisions of the 1964 constitution that do not conflict with Sharia laws. It is currently in the process of drafting a new constitution that is expected to be completed by next year.
