KABUL — The supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, Mullah Hibatullah will lead the new Taliban government in the war-torn country, the group has announced.

Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said that the group will reject foreigners’ intervention over the name and structure of the next government, reports TOLO News.

“We will not allow anyone to interfere in Afghanistan’s affairs. The government name, its type, and form belong to the Afghans and they will decide,” Mujahid said.

Mullah Mohammad Hasan Akhund has been appointed as the Acting Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and Abdul Salam Hanafi were named Acting Deputy Prime Ministers, while Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, son of Mullah Omar, was appointed as Acting Defense Minister.

Amir Khan Muttaqi has been appointed as Acting Foreign Minister, and Sarajuddin Haqqani, son of the founder of the Haqqani Network terror group, was named Acting Interior Minister.
