Parties not yet settled on candidate for justice ministry: MP

mahdi (2)
Adil Abd al-Mahdi

Fatah Alliance MP Ahmed Ali Hussein said on Sunday that the political parties have settled on candidates for the remaining candidates of Adil Abd al-Mahdi's government, except for ministry of justice.

He added that the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) have not yet presented a candidate for the ministry.

Hussein said in a press statement that the dispute over the interior ministry was solved after Falih al-Fayyadh withdrew his nomination.

The option is left to Abd al-Mahdi to pick the suitable ministers within the names provided.


On October 24, Abd al-Mahdi managed to get the parliamentary approval on 14 out of 22 ministries. However disagreement between political blocs especially on security ministries have thwarted Abd al-Mahdi's efforts to complete the cabinet in a short time.
