Shafak News / The Sadrist movement, led by Muqtada al-Sadr, commented today, Thursday, on assigning the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, to the head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, Mustafa al-Kazimi, to form the new government.
“The Sadrist movement is with the national consensus, and it is with this mandate, because – Al-Kazemi – receives support from all political forces, with all its components,” said the leader of the current, the governor of Zamili, to Shafaq News.
And that “the Sadrist movement will support and vote on the Al-Kazemi government, if it presents competent and honest personalities, and we will refuse to pass any character on it with any indications.”
On Thursday, Iraqi President Barham Salih commissioned the head of the Intelligence Agency, Mustafa al-Kazemi, to form the new Iraqi government, after Adnan al-Zorfi announced he was stepping down from this task.
Al-Kazemi has a 30-day deadline beginning April 9 to paralyze the new government that Muhammad Allawi and Adnan al-Zarfi failed.
Al-Zrafi considered his apology for continuing to commission due to “preserving the unity and supreme interests of Iraq.”
Al-Zorfi’s failure to form the government came after Shi’ite and Sunni forces agreed, as well as the Kurdistan region, to nominate the head of the intelligence service, Mustafa al-Kazemi, to form the next government.
The Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani, and the Iraqi Forces Alliance led by Parliament Speaker Muhammad Al-Halbousi and the National Alliance led by Iyad Allawi announced Minister Al-Kazemi to succeed the resigned Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi.
Al-Kazemi said in his first statement after the commissioning, “With my assignment to the task of heading the Iraqi government, I pledge before my honorable people, to work to form a government that puts the aspirations and demands of the Iraqis at the top of its priorities, and safeguards the sovereignty of the country, preserves rights, works to solve crises, and pushes the economy forward “.
