Reform and Reconstruction Alliance MP Ali al-Bediri revealed on Sunday a political agreement to replace all candidates of the remaining ministries in Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi's government.

"The political blocs agreed to replace the incumbent controversial candidates," Bediri said, adding that they currently negotiate about new nominees for the four remaining ministries, but have not reached consensus so far over the new names.

He explained that the political blocs will spend the legislative holiday to hold meetings and consultations in this regard.

Reform Alliance MP Jamal Fakher said on Saturday that the absence of Abd al-Mahdi for the parliamentary sessions devoted to the completion of the cabinet have failed passing candidates of the remaining ministers.

Parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halboosi announced on Saturday the end of the first legislative term of the fourth parliamentary session.
