Baghdad / Obelisk: The head of the Bayraq al-Khair Parliamentary Bloc, MP Muhammad Othman al-Khaldi, expected on Tuesday January 14, 2020 that the figure of the new prime minister would be “independent and close to the demonstrators,” while noting that the return of Adel Abdul Mahdi to the post had become impossible.
Al-Khalidi said, “The peaceful demonstrations that roam many of the country’s governorates and demanding change and reform have defined their general demands for a comprehensive change of government, starting with Abdul-Mahdi,” stressing that “the nomination of several political figures for the post is a wrong decision, and has angered the Iraqi street, because everyone agrees to nominate Independently acceptable to the demonstrators. ”
Al-Khalidi added, “The demonstrators were clear in their demands, which is the nomination of an independent figure capable of managing the country and finding solutions to the vast amount of current problems, without looking at his national or sectarian background. What is important is that he is an Iraqi who preserves the country amid the waves of crises surrounding him.” Until “any political figure nominated will not find any acceptance from the street.”
Al-Khalidi pointed out, “The success of any candidate in reaching the prime minister’s office must have the acceptance of 4 parties, each of the 170 representatives who signed the specifications for the next prime minister, which came out of the crisis according to a national framework, the presidency of the republic, political forces and demonstrators.”
“Therefore, we expect the next prime minister to be independent and close to the demonstrators, and this is the best solution for managing the interim period until the early elections stage,” he said.
He continued, “The return of the Prime Minister to the Prime Minister again is impossible and any attempts in this framework will generate great popular anger in several provinces,” stressing that “the option to form a new government is the best way to get the country out of its current crisis.”
The MP revealed on the other, Amid Al-Aqabi, earlier, “the attempts of some political blocs to restore confidence in Adel Abdul Mahdi to form a new government,” noting that it is an “unsuccessful step.”
