, sources familiar with the government formation negotiations revealed, on Thursday, that Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Allawi guaranteed within half of the parliament’s votes to pass his cabinet.
The sources said, "Allawi is now half of the parliament’s 329 votes."
And she added: "But he is seeking to reach understandings with Sunni and Kurdish forces that have brought new conditions for accepting his support during the past two days, the most prominent of which is the demand to set a specific early election date in the government program, as well as what those blocs describe as their electoral entitlement in the government."
Allawi called in a speech yesterday to the Iraqi people, the Presidency of the House of Representatives and members to "hold an extraordinary session in order to vote on granting confidence to the government next February 24," and called on members of the House of Representatives to "prove to all Iraqis their desire for reform and to bear national responsibility It is their responsibility to think about the present and future of Iraq and private interests do not prevent them from making the right decision, because Iraq is above all interests. ”End / 29 / A 43
