It seems that the Shiite blocs, particularly the Building (Bina) Alliance, have realized that the controversy over appointing Faleh al-Fayyad as the new interior minister will not be resolved amid the rejection of Muqtada al-Sadr's Saairun Alliance to choose him.

As compromises, interventions and mediation seem all to reach a deadlock, the political blocs know they all have to find a new solution.

Nasr Alliance MP Ali al-Sunaid said that the Shiite parties intend to submit an alternative for Fayyad to Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi in order for the rest of his government's candidates to be introduced to the parliament soon.

The Saairun and Building alliances will submit a candidate for the interior minister post to the prime minister next week, Sunaid said in a press statement.
