Al-Halbousi calls for expedite the selection of a candidate for prime minister

Baghdad -INA

Today, Monday, Speaker of Parliament Muhammad Al-Halbousi called on political forces to cooperate with the file of forming a government and expedite the selection of a candidate that matches the aspirations of the Iraqi people.

According to the press office statement of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, which it  received by INA, Al-Halbousi stated that the selection of a strong new government backed by political forces - provided that a clear strategic vision is implemented to implement the reform steps and be able to meet the demands - comes as an important step to resolve the current crisis in the country.

He added that there are still young people in the demonstration arenas demanding reform, and we must listen to and respond to their right demands after unification, and deal with them wisely. They are our children and the state has a duty to provide a free and dignified life for all the Iraqi people.

Al-Halbousi added that "attacking public and private money, cutting roads and disrupting permanence is harmful to the public interest, and offends peaceful demonstrators and their goals of achieving reform, and our young people must remove vandals from their ranks and maintain the peaceful demonstrations."
