The IMIS candidate for the interior ministry in Adil Abdel al-Mahdi’s cabinet, Falih al-Fayyadh has officially withdrawn his candidacy bid, al-Fatah MP Hunain al-Qado said Tuesday.

“Fayyadh will remain on top of National Security Ministry after merging it with the security authority,” al-Qado said, pointing out that that Sairoon and Fatah blocs have not settled on a new candidate yet.

“Negotiations are underway between Sairoon and Fatah to name the new interior minister, waiting for the parliament’s approval,” al-Qado added.

The political parties and coalitions have been disputing over the candidacy of Fayyadh over the past three months, objecting to his loyalty to the Mullah Regime in Iran.
