The prime minister of Afghanistan (Pashto: د افغانستان لومړی وزیر; Dari: رئیس‌الوزرای افغانستان) is the head of government of Afghanistan.[2] The position was created in 1927 as an official appointed by the King of Afghanistan. The holder served mostly as an advisor, until the end of the Kingdom of Afghanistan in 1973. During the 1980s, the position was the head of government. The post was abolished after the US invasion that ousted the Taliban regime, after which a presidential form of government was established which lasted from 2004 to 2021. After the US withdrawal and the re-establishment of the Taliban rule, the post was revived.

On September 7, 2021 the Taliban officials who exercise de facto control of most of Afghanistan announced Islamic scholar Hasan Akhund as acting prime minister in a new interim government of the recently re-established Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.[3] The government is subject to the oversight of the leader of the Islamic Emirate, Hibatullah Akhundzada.
