Hassan Khalati, MP of the National Wisdom Movement headed by Ammar al-Hakim, said that high-level meetings have been held to resolve the political dispute around the Interior Ministry post in Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi's government.

Khalati said that overcoming the dispute around the Interior Ministry portfolio is the "key" to completing the formation of the government.

State of the Law MP Mohamed al-Sudani said on Sunday that the Fatah and Saairun alliances failed to resolve the issue and complete the government formation.

Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi has worked on completing the formation of his government since he took post last October.

On October 24, Abd al-Mahdi managed to get the parliamentary approval on 14 out of 22 ministries. However, disagreement between political blocs, especially on the security ministries, have thwarted Abd al-Mahdi's efforts to complete the cabinet in a short time.
