al-Fayadh is believed to take over the post of interior minister in the new cabinet, MP of the National Alliance Haider al-Fawadi stated on Saturday.
“The House of Representatives will most likely vote in favor of al-Fayadh as the new Minister of Interior Affairs, due to his accumulated experience in the field of security,” al-Fawadi added.
Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi
will announce names of the remaining eight ministers in the latest government lineup within two
days, according to al-Fawadi.
On Nov. 21, Abdul Mahdi said he will submit his nominees to fill out the cabinet to parliament for approval next week.
