28 Defense Ministry candidates gave their names to Abdul Mahdi: Issawi


National Axis MP Falih al-Issawi said on Monday that 28 names for the candidacy of the defense portfolio were submitted to Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi.

Issawi said in a press statement that the meeting on Tuesday will certainly include passing a candidate for the Ministry of Defense, adding that it is likely to pass the candidate submitted by Parliament Speaker Mohammed Halbousi after he was authorized by a number of MPs to introduce who he deems suitable for the position.

Issawi said that there are nine names that were provided by Halbousi, including three of the leaders of the anti-terrorism authority, besides Sunni and Kurdish candidates, pointing out that choosing a candidate is not based on the component but rather on efficiency and experience.
