The Saairun Alliance has reiterated its rejection of Faleh al-Fayadh as the candidate for interior minister, saying that it would never accept him.
Saairun MP Mudar Ismail said Monday that the Reform and Reconstruction
Alliance has a clear stance toward the nomination of Fayadh for the Interior Ministry portfolio, adding that this stance has been
understood by all political blocs.
In an interview with The Baghdad Post, Ismail said that Saairun Alliance will not accept Fayadh as interior minister even if he was introduced to the parliament in all its coming sessions for four consecutive years.
Ismail stressed the need to replace Fayadh with another independent and specialized figure capable of managing Iraq's security issues.
"The replacement of Fayadh will contribute to the completion of the ministry and will [allow] the government to provide services to the Iraqi people," as part of its duty, Ismail stated.
