Afghan Interior Minister Amrullah Saleh resigned on Saturday to run for the vice-presidency in the July election, two political sources said.

"He resigned and he will file his nomination as part of President Ghani's team," said a source from the presidential palace in Kabul.

In December, President Ashraf Ghani appointed Saleh, a former security official and an uncompromising opponent of the Taliban, to his government in a bid to secure the support of former opponents for a second term.
