Victory Coalition denies nomination of Faleh al-Fayadh as PM


The media office of the Victory Coalition has denied the nomination of Faleh al-Fayadh as Prime Minister.


On Thursday, PM Haidar Abadi issued a decree to exempt al-Fayadh, Head and Advisor of the National Security Council, from all his government posts.

According to a statement from Abadi's media office, al-Fayadh has been involved in political and partisan activities which contradicts the sensitivity of his security missions. 

The statement added that the decision was based on the Iraqi constitution that keeps the neutrality of the security and intelligence services.
