A political source revealed the most prominent names nominated in the election
The political oasis now, to assume the presidency of the next government, noting that there are other options that may be presented according to the understandings between the political parties in the event that no agreement is reached on the most prominent candidates.
The source told Rudaw Media Network, on Saturday (January 8, 2022), that "the political blocs are circulating three prominent names to take over the position of the next prime minister," noting that "these names are Mustafa Al-Kazemi, Haider Al-Abadi and Asad Al-Eidani."
The source, who asked not to be named, explained that "Mustafa Al-Kazemi is not wanted by the coordinating framework, and therefore the Sadrist movement may be forced to support Haider al-Abadi's assumption of the position, so that he does not receive the blame alone from the rest of the Shiite parties, in the event that al-Abadi does not succeed in his mission."
The source pointed out that "Al-Eidani is on the list of candidates, but there are grievances against him from some political parties, and perhaps the West as well," adding that "other than these names may be presented in the political arena soon, in the event that no agreement is reached between the various parties about them."
