Despite his popular rejection … the building alliance presents Al-Eidani in place of Al-Suhail as prime minister
Al-Fateh MP, Uday Awad, revealed today, Wednesday, that the Construction Alliance intends to send a book to President of the Republic Barham Salih regarding the candidacy of Asaad Al-Eidani to the post of prime minister.
Awad said in a press statement, “The Building Alliance agreed in its meeting yesterday night to nominate Asaad Al-Eidani to the post of prime minister,” adding that “Al-Eidani is the second option after Qusay Al-Suhail.”
He added that “the intensity of the protests will be less severe towards the current governor of Basra, Asaad Al-Eidani, after the protests that witnessed the presentation of Minister of Higher Education Qusay al-Suhail to the post of prime minister.”
Awad said that “the Construction Alliance will send a book to the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, which includes the presentation of Asaad Al-Eidani to the post of prime minister,” noting that “Al-Eidani will receive the consent of the political blocs.”
Awad stressed that “there is almost unanimity on the need for the next prime minister to be acceptable to most political blocs and for the government not to be dialectical as described by the authority.”
He pointed out that, “The flexibility with which construction deals through the replacement of candidates, indicates that the coalition is looking for a quick solution that will get Iraq out of the crisis.”
A source had stated that the Building Alliance held a meeting last night that lasted until dawn, indicating the meeting discussed the proposal for an acceptable candidate for the post of prime minister.
Meanwhile, Minister of Higher Education Qusai Al-Suhail officially withdrew his candidacy from the race to compete for the position of prime minister.
It is noteworthy that the demonstrators had previously announced their refusal to nominate Basra Governor Asaad Al-Eidani to the post of prime minister. Source
