{Baghdad: Al Furat News} A political source said today, Wednesday, that the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, does not want to receive the powers of the Prime Minister during the constitutional vacuum period, after the resignation of Adel Abdul Mahdi.

He said in a press statement, “Saleh is currently seeking to present candidates for prime minister through the meeting he will hold today with leaders of political blocs,” noting: “Even if he entered Iraq in a constitutional vacuum, he will not receive the powers of the prime minister.”

The resigned prime minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, announced on Tuesday that his government will continue to conduct business until the formation of a new government.

It is noteworthy that Abdul-Mahdi lifted his resignation from his position to the House of Representatives on the fourth of this month, in response to the demands of the demonstrators and the religious authority in the country.
