PM introduces new candidates for migration, education ministries: Tamimi

Binna'a Coalition MP Hammam al-Tamimi said that Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi sent the names of alternative candidates to head the Ministries of Migration and Displaced, and Education.

The nominees for Minister of Education and Minister of Displacement and Migration, the only women to be nominated for cabinet positions so far, both failed on Tuesday to get enough votes, highlighting the continuing disarray over Abdul Mahdi's appointees.

Tamimi said that the vote on the candidates of the two ministries may take place on Thursday's session or on the next session on Saturday maximum.

He stressed that the choice should be left to the prime minister to submit his candidates freely, adding that the Parliament members should subsequently have the freedom to choose those who they think are suitable for the posts, to enable those rejected to be replaced.
