Article on whether Balkh governor Muhammad Atta Nur is getting ready to run in the next presidential election quotes AAN’s Thomas Ruttig:

Noor’s campaign against Abdullah has pushed the chief executive into a corner. “I think he [Abdullah] has been severely damaged by all those in Jamiat criticizing him for ‘not delivering,’ whether they support Atta or not,” Thomas Ruttig, the co-director of the Afghanistan Analysts Network, said.
