Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson of the de facto administration, revealed that the country’s new media law draft has been finished and forwarded to the supreme leader for approval. He underscored its adherence to media principles.

Mujahid stated that roughly 70% of the draft is from the old law. Changes were implemented to harmonize it with Islamic Sharia law, similar to the media law from the previous Afghan government.

“The law requires that funding sources must be transparent,” he said emphatically.
