Baghdad / Al-Akhbariya:
Legal expert, Ali Al-Tamimi, considered, on Wednesday, that the Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi’s apology is not a failure in the task of forming a government, stating that the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, has the right to choose the next prime minister without referring to the largest bloc.
Al-Tamimi said in a statement to “Al-Akhbaria” that “Al-Zarrafi’s apology during the 30-day period granted to him according to Article 76, paragraphs two and four of the constitution is not considered a failure because he retreated by individual will and is not a result of a failure in the inability to present the ministerial curriculum or cabinet cabinets, not even the lack of Granting confidence from Parliament, rather it is a diplomatic political apology, far from failure. Therefore, we are still in the fifth paragraph of Article 76 of the Constitution, which, in this spirit, allows the President of the Republic to appoint another candidate. ”
He added, “The President of the Republic has the right to nominate a successor to Zorfi as long as the interpretation of the Federal Court No. 29 of 2020 is effective and has given the President of the Republic the freedom to choose without committing to the largest bloc.”
He continued, “The person responsible for succeeding Zarfi is the candidate of the last opportunity mentioned in paragraph 5 of Article 76 of the constitution … and if he fails, the administration of the country will be transferred to the President of the Republic according to Article 81 of the Constitution.”
