Description : 

Historians trace back Loya Jirga’s origins to 250 B.C. To the Parthians. The Aryans brought this democratic practice to the subcontinent, where it still flourishes in the form of Panchayats, but only at the village level. In the area now known as Afghanistan, this process evolved to serve as kingmaker and to take decisions on important matters so much so that the entire Afghan nation came to acknowledge the Loya Jirga as truly representative.
