Close to Al-Zarfi reveals the date of the parliamentary session to vote on the new government

Today, Saturday, a close associate of the Prime Minister-designate, Adnan Al-Zorfi, revealed the date for the parliament to hold its session to vote on the new Iraqi government.

Al-Zrafi sent the ministerial curriculum to the Iraqi parliament earlier today, with the aim of voting on his government.

A close associate of Al-Zrafi told Shafak News that “the voting session for the government in the Iraqi parliament will be on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, and during the coming hours, an official request will be made to hold this session.”

And that “the Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi, managed during the past days to obtain the support of the majority of deputies from the various political blocs, and the vote of deputies, will be far from the decisions and directives of the heads of the blocs and political parties.”

On March 16th, the President of the Republic tasked Barham Salih, the head of the parliamentary victory bloc, Adnan al-Zarfi, to form the new government within a period of 30 days.

This mandate came after the “Seven Committee” of the Shiite forces failed to reach agreement on a specific candidate.

Al-Zrafi faces rejection from prominent Shiite forces close to Iran, led by Hadi al-Amiri, the Al-Fateh coalition, and the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki pushed it to form a new seven-party committee to choose an alternative to al-Zorfi. Source
