Afghan President Ashraf Ghani marked his first 100 days in power on Tuesday, still struggling to form a government as a new political stalemate threatens to fuel the Taliban insurgency.Ghani was eventually inaugurated on Sept. 29 after agreeing to a power-sharing deal with his poll rival Abdullah Abdullah, who was appointed "chief executive" -- a new role similar to prime minister.Ghani has repeatedly missed his own deadlines on forming the government and asked Afghans to show patience.Ghani hit the ground running when he signed a long-delayed security deal in his first full day in office.A web project called Sad Roz ("100 days") said out of 110 verified government promises, 83 were unstarted, 23 in progress and four achieved.A senior official close to the president defended the delay and said the government would be announced soon.
