Baghdad / Obelisk: The MP from the Bayraq al-Khair bloc, Muhammad al-Khalidi, on Saturday, December 14, 2019, revealed that 180 deputies support the nomination of an independent figure to head the new government, confirming sending, officially, 150 parliamentary signatures, to confirm this.
Al-Khalidi confirmed that they will submit to the President of the Republic the CVs of three new names.
Al-Khalidi said, “The number of deputies supporting the nomination of a prime minister acceptable to the demonstrators has reached 180, from the blocs of Bairaq al-Khair, the Union of Forces, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and the coalition of victory and wisdom.”
He added, “The number of signatories officially present on the nomination document has reached 150 signatures,” noting that “the document was handed over to Barham Salih for approval.”
He continued, “Muhammad Shia’a Al-Sudani was formally rejected by the demonstrators, which means that he was formally rejected by the 150 deputies,” noting that “the President of the Republic informed the deputies that he supports the presentation of a figure who is acceptable to the demonstrators and is independent.”
The political blocs dispute the way to choose a new candidate to head the government, between those who call for deciding the choice by the demonstrators, while calling for political blocs to entrust the matter to the House of Representatives, given that the protest yards do not represent all Iraqis.
During the past few days, the center, the political, and the media circulated many personalities to assume the position of prime minister, without decisiveness, while the parties launched signals to express rejection or acceptance of this or that name.
And the demonstrations seem to confuse the parties and blocs, and lose confidence in their options and positions, to the extent that the constitutional and legal mechanisms for choosing the Prime Minister are marginalized, where the largest bloc in the House of Representatives decides the name and presents it to the President of the Republic, who in turn submits it to Parliament to give him confidence.
The matter that readily observes that confusion and confusion, the master of the situation, and the blocks that seemed compelled to accept the resignation of Adel Abdul-Mahdi, finds herself confused about it, as it seeks to choose an alternative to it, where differences escalate around the candidates, and the multiple names are presented either to feel the pulse or deliberately “Burn.”
The lack of enthusiasm for political blocs and parties, to profess the desire for the position of prime minister, indicates political distrust, and its awareness that the balance of power tends a lot, beyond what it wishes, to find itself forced to not express its will and aspirations, in front of demonstrations that “spoil” the class The entire political.
The Iraqi Council of Representatives approved the request to resign the Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi and his government in the first of this month, to turn into a caretaker government.
