(Reuters) - The appointment of Adel Abdul-Mahdi to form a government has not been accepted by Shiite political forces , a Gulf newspaper reported on Wednesday , noting that those forces remained silent and non-objectionable. 

The newspaper quoted a political source familiar with saying that "the assignment of Adel Abdul-Mahdi to form a new government has not been accepted by some of the Shiite political forces," noting that "the objectors were forced to silence and non-objection, because of the support received by the charge to form the government by most parties."

The source expected that "facing the issue of forming a government many difficulties, because Adel Abdul Mahdi does not have a large parliamentary bloc could be supportive of him in negotiations to agree on the new cabinet reshuffle, which will be arduous," according to the same source.
