After the 2009 presidential election, 25 ministers have been appointed by President Hamid Karzai but only 14 of them have received their approval votes from Afghan parliament members. Since the establishment of the Hamid Karzai government in 2004, there have been changes every year in the Afghanistan ministries. It's believed that the Ministers have been replaced from one ministry to an other by the president, due to lack of experience.
