Former Deputy Prime Minister, Bahaa Al-Araji, confirmed today, Thursday, that there is a trend to keep Adel Abdul-Mahdi as prime minister.

Al-Araji said in an interview with the Iraqi News Agency, "Allawi's apology for forming the government came as a result of his lack of success in choosing ministers, as it was supposed to give each ministry to the participating blocs according to the specifications, and these are democracies in force in all countries of the world, that It is the blocs that make up the government.

 He explained that "there is a move by the President of the Republic and members of Parliament to find a candidate for prime minister, and I believe that Adel Abdul Mahdi will remain," noting that "despite the Council issuing the election law and it was voted upon three months ago, it was not sent to the Presidency of the Republic, and this indicates Until there is a deliberate intention to delay the holding of elections. "

He added that "the best choice for the next stage is to retain Adel Abdul Mahdi," noting that "his survival does not oppose the political process, especially after the House of Representatives issued the election law, and by this, the most important demands of the demonstrators to hold early elections have been fulfilled."
