If the political conflicts resume between the Iraqi Reform and al-Binna'a blocs, the government of Prime Minister Adil Abdel Mahdi will fall, member of State of Law Coalition, MP Abdul Hadi Mohan al-Saadawi said on Saturday.

Negotiations between the Iraqi Reform and al-Binna'a blocs, led by populist cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and Hadi al-Amiri, failed on Friday to reach an understanding over the candidacy of Falih al-Fayadh for the interior ministry post. 

A leading official from al-Binna'a bloc stated that it has no other option but to vote for Fayadh’s candidacy at a parliament session, expected to be held on Saturday. 

“We failed to reach any deal with the Reform bloc,” the official said on conditions of anonymity to Asharq Al-Awsat

He added that the decision was not related to Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi’s stance.

“We know that until this moment, Abdul Mahdi is still committed to Fayadh’s candidacy,” the official said.
