Harb: Abadi’s government continues with full powers despite the assignment of Abdul Mahdi
The legal expert, Tarek Harb, said on Wednesday that the current government headed by Haider al-Abadi, continuing full powers and is not a caretaker government, despite the assignment of Adel Abdul Mahdi, by President Barham Saleh.
Harb said in press statements that “the current government, constitutionally and legally is not a caretaker government, but a reality must avoid the signing of treaties, contracts and important documents, as there is a president in charge of forming a government.”
“The current government has to wait on a lot of issues and leave it to the next government.”
Harb explained that “the mission of the government of Abadi will end when the House of Representatives votes on the ministerial curriculum and the cabinet to be formed by Prime Minister-designate Adel Abdul Mahdi.”
The President of the Republic elected by the House of Representatives, Barham Saleh, was officially assigned on Tuesday, former Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, to form a new government.
