Legal expert: The President of the Republic will be appointed as a substitute for Allawi in this case
Legal expert Tareq Harb confirmed, on Sunday, that the constitutional period specified for Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi to choose his cabinet cabinet expires on the second of next March, indicating that if the term ends without submitting Allawi his government, the President of the Republic is obligated to assign another person.
Harb said in an interview with Alsumaria News, “The President of the Republic mandated Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi to form the government on the first of February this year, according to the constitution that assigned the taxpayer a period of one month to present his government formation to Parliament for a vote on it, because the period ends on the second of March next,” noting that “The constitution did not give any space or flexibility in the extension of the taxpayer if the term expires without submitting his booth as it is in the flexibility of the term in other cases.”
Harb added, “If the month ends without the success of the designated president, to present his government, then the president of the republic is obligated to assign another person after the first failure and it is not permissible to reassign the same person. The taxpayer can submit part of his booth to Parliament during the specified period, as the constitution did not specify the upper or lower limits for the cabinet booth, which gives room in this part to the prime minister-designate to present what he has and complete the rest at another time.
