He pointed out that “there was no frustration between me and the prime minister and throughout his tenure in office, the contact was perhaps between us on a daily basis or maybe my phone, and during this period due to concerns, communication between us decreased, and today we speak frankly. It is not logical that many ministries are devoid of the representation of components that are of color One and some of them represent the rest of the components are few and marginal, and there are those who are not fair to them in the current situation, the lack of justice and justice, everyone must do justice, and we know that the legacy is heavy and that one day is difficult to deal with, but we have to start reform and treatment and everyone feels that this is their country and their institutions without feeling the distinction between one color and another “.
