Ashraf Ghani
President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan
President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani grew up in Afghanistan, but pursued his education outside of the country. During this time, Ghani became a leading scholar of Political Science and Anthropology, later working at the World Bank. Following the fall of the Taliban in 2001, he returned to Afghanistan to advise interim President Karzai and serve as the Finance Minister of the Transitional Islamic State of Afghanistan. During his tenure as Finance Minister, he designed a package of reforms and initiated several public investment programs. In 2010, he became Chairman of the Transition Coordination Commission (TCC), which was responsible for transferring authority from foreign to national troops. He resigned from the TCC to run for president in October 2013 and was declared the winner on September 22, 2014. Ghani was re-elected on September 28, 2019.
