Darraji stronger candidate for Defense Ministry: National Coalition


The National Coalition suggested on Saturday that Hisham al-Darraji, a candidate for the Defense Ministry in Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi's government, would be granted the post.

Instissar al-Jubouri, MP of the coalition, said that a controversy was triggered over the ministry's candidate Faisal al-Jarba due to his connection with the former regime, adding that the parliament's majority objected to Jarba's appointment to the ministry.

However, when Darraji was introduced as a second candidate to lead the ministry, "there was no parliamentary objection," said Jubouri. She added that the parliament members "would probably grant confidence to Darraji in the next parliament session."
