Member of Victory Alliance, Riad al-Tamimi said on Monday that his alliance will join the opposition if Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi did not assume a second term in office.

"The conditions of political reform set by the Sadrist Movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr on the next government and its head apply to Haider al-Abadi", Tamimi said in a press statement.

Tamimi added that all Victory Alliance members are insisting on Abadi as a candidate for prime minister post.
