Saairun says will not attend meetings to choose PM

Saairun Alliance on Sunday denies intentions to attend meetings to choose a replacement for resigned Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi, noting that it would leave the choice to people.

The alliance said in a statement that it "announced not attending any meetings with the political blocs to choose an alternative to Adil Abd al-Mahdi"

Earlier on Sunday, Saairun bloc, the parliament's largest, announced giving up its right to nominate the next prime minister, and said it informed President Barham Salih about that.
