Advisor to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for Economic Affairs, Hammam Al-Shamaa, ruled out the presentation of the Prime Minister-designate, Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, an integrated government program, noting that the budget deficit was the most prominent economic challenge facing it.
Al-Shamaa said: “The Prime Minister-designate, Mohammed Allawi, will not face major economic challenges because he came with a temporary mission that is limited to preparing for early elections, pointing out: The only economic challenge that Allawi will face during his government is the huge financial deficit in the budget, due to the promises he made The resigned prime minister, who bore huge financial burdens.
He added: Allawi will not present an integrated government program to Parliament, because his short tenure does not exceed 9 months, and his government will be limited to a specific task, which is to hold early elections in a fair and transparent manner that ensures the arrival of new political elites to the reins of power. Noting: that other economic problems do not have sufficient time to address them.
He stressed: that if the blocs pressed to complete Allawi for the next three years, perhaps a popular uprising will emerge greater than the current one that may lead to the overthrow of Allawi, then the Prime Minister-designate cannot risk staying in power for a longer period.
He made clear: The promises that Allawi made indicate that either Allawi is not aware of the nature of the task assigned to him and the short period specified by it, or there are perhaps reassurances from the blocs for Allawi to stay for a longer period, stressing: Allawi has no economic mission, and he has no obligation to make pledges to diversify the Iraqi economy. And changing his course, because the period in which he will take over the government is a very short period, and it is almost a period of running business, not state administration.
In turn, the deputy for the State of Law coalition, Alia Nassif, revealed the intention of the Prime Minister-designate, Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, to send official books to the political forces and the Presidency of the Republic, including the names of the nominated ministers indicating that deputies asked for 72 hours to study them.
Nassif said in a press statement: "The designated Prime Minister, Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, will send official books to the Presidency of the Republic and political forces that include the names of the candidates for the ministries." Noting that "Allawi has a number of alternative names in the event that any candidate for a specific ministry is rejected."
