Khas Uruzgan District is a district of Oruzgan Province, Afghanistan.[1]

Government[edit]

A District Governor, Chief of Police, four person district council, four person ulema shura and a two-judge court exist. The district council had eight members until the spring of 2008, when Taliban threats forced half to quit.[2] In November of 2010 more than 300 tribal elders and religious leaders from across the district elected a first-ever district community council.[3]
