PM to solely choose ministerial candidates if dispute continues: MP

mahdi (2)
Wataniya (National) Coalition MP Raad al-Dahlaki referred to the insistence of some political parties to nominate Faleh al-Fayadh for the Interior Ministry in Adil Abdul Mahdi's government, considering it as one of the main "obstacles" in the cabinet formation.

Abdul Mahdi will have to overcome the dispute between political blocs in case it continues, and to introduce independent candidates for the vacant ministries, who he will choose by himself.

Dahlaki called on political parties to end their disputes during the current parliament recess, and to settle on candidates for the security ministries.

The National Coalition nominated a number of people to take over the Ministry of Defense, while candidates for the portfolios of justice and education ministries have been settled on, Dahlaki said.
