Deputy Alia Nassif confirmed, Thursday, that the Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi personally chose his cabinet ministers without dictating the political blocs and this choice stems from his commitment to the constitutional ceiling, noting that some political parties, including the Kurds, are interested in ministerial quotas and not in the government program .
Nassif said in a statement to the "information", that "Prime Minister Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi put most of his interest in not exceeding the constitutional ceiling and a period of one month in completing the nomination of the pillars of his government from the ministers, so he acted alone in choosing his ministers", indicating that "Allawi did not care to the dictates Which some political forces tried to impose on him. ”
Nassif added, “Some political forces, including the Kurdish forces, did not pay attention during their discussions with Allawi to the government program, but rather were about their ministerial shares in the next government.”
Nassif indicated that "if the political blocs sensed the presence of favoritism by Allawi for any political bloc in his cabinet, the rest of the blocs would be reluctant to give confidence to his government." Ended in / 25 pm
