'Victory': Largest bloc must be determined before presidential mandate

The Victory Alliance, led by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, asserted that it is necessary to abide by the constitutional provisions to determine the largest parliamentary bloc before a candidate for president of the republic can be mandated to form a government.

The alliance added that "any assignment for any candidate without the resolution of the largest bloc is an explicit constitutional violation, does not have constitutional legitimacy, and cannot be accepted or the next government built upon it."

"Commitment to the Constitution must be above any considerations and interests whatsoever to ensure the legitimacy of state structures, powers and functions and to ensure the safety of constitutional and democratic contexts in the country," the alliance stated.
