On Monday, legal expert Ali Al-Tamimi said that the President of the Republic will take over the functions of the Prime Minister if the caretaker period ends without selecting a new Prime Minister, noting that the Federal Court will be the judge in the event that a new Prime Minister is not assigned by the President of the Republic.
Al-Tamimi said in a statement to "Information", that "Article 76 of the constitution set specific time limits for choosing the prime minister's alternative, and these time limits are not subject to overrun."
He added, "If the prime minister fails within the 15 days specified for him to choose the new prime minister, and the caretaker government period has ended, then Article 81 of the constitution will be transferred."
He explained that "Article 81 stipulates that the administration of the country is entrusted with the President of the Republic, through which he can obtain a period of 15 days to choose another person to be assigned the functions of the Prime Minister."
And that "if the president of the republic does not succeed in assigning the prime minister, the country will be in front of a constitutional vacuum, and the ruling on this matter remains in the hands of the Federal Court in the event that it exceeds the specified period for assigning a new prime minister."
He stressed that "the President of the Republic does not have the right to practice normally as the prime minister of a genuine government. Rather, he continues to manage matters by conducting business only, until a new prime minister is chosen." 25 n ended
