Interior, defense ministers should be war veterans: Saairun

Saairun Alliance

Saairun Alliance, led by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, affirmed his insistence to choose interior and defense ministers from veteran leaders, who proved courage in ground battles.

"The issue is not the nominees, who we all respect; but Iraq is greater than any name," spokesperson of Saairun's Parliamentary bloc Hamdallah al-Rikabi said in a statement.

He explained that security positions at the cabinet are very vital for the stability of the country; therefore they must be chosen carefully, adding that the best option is the leaders who bear the burden of responsibility within the security services, to be able to manage these ministries.
