MP Uday Awad from the Sadiqoun bloc, which is affiliated with the Fatah Alliance, confirmed that his movement will grant the culture minister post to someone from Basra as its share of the new government.

Awad added that the province needs someone to relate its suffering to the cabinet since the province did not obtain any ministry in the first round of cabinet nominations passed by the parliament.

He added that the movement will replace its former candidate for the ministry with another from Basra in order to achieve this goal, adding that there are names being raised from the Faculty of Arts and the Author's Union, as well as university professors, for Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi to choose from.
