Basra MP calls for creating new high-level post for province's people

The head of the State of Law parliamentary bloc, Khalaf Abdul Samad, called for the creation of a new high-level post entitled Deputy Prime Minister for Basra Affairs and appointing one of the employees of the province's institutions to the new post.

Abdul Samad, an MP of Basra, said in a statement that injustice and indifference concerning Basra's national entitlement to take posts in the new cabinet reshuffle resulted in a state of anger among people of the province.

He added that the position of Deputy Prime Minister for Basra Affairs should be created in order to solve the crisis. In addition, a number of ministries should be granted to Basra candidates, he said.
