The legal expert Tariq Harb, the demands of some members of Parliament parliamentary committee overseeing the selection of ministers is illegal, indicating that the House of Representatives is not entitled to extension of Abdul Mahdi one day after 30 days to choose his government.
“There is no legal clause that allows the parliament to form a parliamentary committee that oversees the choice of the prime minister in charge of forming his government, and the matter is exclusively for Abdul Mahdi,” he said.
He added that “the parliament has the right to refuse or accept the names of candidates after sending them to the Council to give them confidence,” considering those claims as “overlapping powers and overriding the law.”
He pointed out that “the extension of the Prime Minister-designate Adel Abdul-Mahdi after the end of the 30 days to choose his cabinet,” adding that “the President of the Republic to assign another person after 30 days.”
He added that “the constitution did not specify the size or number of the ministry, which is submitted within thirty days, giving Abdul Mahdi the right to submit two ministries, or three or half of the ministerial lineup within thirty days if he could not submit in full.”
The MP for the alliance victory Al-Musawi confirmed on Sunday that the House of Representatives will extend 15 days to Prime Minister-designate Adel Abdul-Mahdi in the event of failure to choose his new cabinet, while Abdul Mahdi called for the establishment of a committee of parliament to check the names of candidates during an interview with them in the coming days End 25
