Nominating nondependent figures for security posts to put Iraq in crisis: MP


The political blocs insistence on the nomination of independent figures for security posts will put Iraq in front of a new “unbearable” crisis, said senior member at the “Saairun” alliance, Jassem al-Hilfi on Monday.

“I do not think that imposing figures for security posts without the approval of Saairun alliance will be successful.

“Saairun represents a wide parliamentarian force and has a great popular reach, so its perspective must be taken into account," Hilfi said.

Hamdallah al-Rikabi, head of Saairun Alliance's parliamentary bloc, further reiterated the alliance's fixed stance toward nominating candidates for the remaining ministries, saying that security ministries must stay away from the partisan dominance.

The issue of security ministries is one of the most important and serious files, because it concerns the fate of Iraq and its stability, according to Rikabi.


Rikabi also affirmed the importance of granting the security portfolios to people of the security system, who are independent, competent and capable of managing these ministries.

Rikabi said that the "best" solution to this problem is through dialogue as everyone is aware of the seriousness and sensitivity of the current stage.
