Shafaq News/ The leader in the coordination framework, Fadi Al-Shammari, revealed on Monday the fact that there is a political agreement to pass “half of the government” during a parliamentary session to be held this evening.

Al-Shammari told Shafaq News Agency, “The reports that there is a political agreement to pass half the government during a parliamentary session to be held this evening are incorrect and there is no such approach or agreement at all.”

He added, “Next Wednesday is the semi-final date for a vote of confidence in the government of Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, and government consultations for the prime minister-designate are in their final touches.”

It is hoped that a parliamentary session will be held today or tomorrow, Tuesday, to vote on the cabinet of Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, according to statements by a number of deputies in earlier times.

And on Sunday evening, a leader in the coordination framework revealed to Shafaq News Agency, that “the coordination framework held a meeting (yesterday evening) and its leaders agreed on the necessity of resolving the ministerial cabinet, and voting to grant confidence to the government of designate Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, as the maximum during the next week.”

Iraq witnessed a cautious breakthrough when parliament was able to elect a president of the republic, who in turn tasked Muhammad Shia’a al-Sudani with forming the new government, whose composition has been stalled for more than a year, which is the date of early elections.

Al-Sudani says that he is working to present his government’s candidates to Parliament as soon as possible, but several obstacles have blocked this path, starting with his political incubator, the coordinating framework.
