He also called on the provincial council to choose who is suitable for the post of police chief after presenting the names of candidates, stressing that he has no objection to any officer meets the conditions, including the new commander of the Basra police.
"There is no political interference in the decision to replace the former police chief, Major General Abdul Karim Mustafa because the two police commanders are of the same direction."
Al-Eidani said that Prime Minister Haider Abadi is the most committed person to the constitution, denying that the issue is a rebellion or a cause of pride in Rai, but a constitutional issue and all the attributes in Iraq should be under the Constitution and when it reaches a dead end will go to the Constitution.
