Al-Sadr’s alliance marks “difficulties” facing Al-Kazemi and the latter postpones the request to grant confidence to his government

The Saeron Alliance close to the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, revealed, on Tuesday, difficulties facing Prime Minister-designate Mustafa al-Kazimi, while the Al-Fateh coalition headed by Hadi al-Amiri indicated that Al-Kazemi had postponed a request to the parliament to give confidence to his government until next week.

The deputy of the Bloc of Riyad al-Masoudi told Shafak News, “The Prime Minister-designate Mustafa al-Kazimi faces a difficulty in persuading the blocs to dispense with their interests and accelerate the formation of his government before the end of the constitutional period.”

He added that “the political blocs and parties have demands outside the ministerial cabinet and the inclusion of files and crises on the political dialogue table that were not resolved in previous governments.”

Al-Masoudi pointed out that “political forces have become demanding Al-Kazemi to solve the crisis of the displaced, implement Article 140 of the constitution, pay the peshmerga salaries and spread them, and not prejudice the popular crowd, in addition to the international relations of Iraq with the regional environment.” Temporary and not permanent until early elections.”

For his part, Al-Fath MP, Amer Al-Fayez, told Shafaq News, “Today, Al-Kazemi intended to send a request to the House of Representatives to give confidence to his government, but some obstacles prevented it.”

He added that “the Prime Minister-designate is currently engaged in a continuous discussion with the Kurdish and Sunni forces in order to agree on the personalities that were chosen in the cabinet,” noting that “the Shiite forces have authorized Al-Kazemi to choose the candidates in his government.”

Al-Fayez continued, “Al-Kazemi postponed sending a request to the parliament to give confidence to his government until next week because of the continuing dialogues and negotiations with some political forces and the incomplete ministerial approach.”

On April 9 this year, President of the Republic Barham Salih authorized Al-Kazimi to form the government within 30 days, less than an hour after the former Prime Minister-designate, Adnan al-Zorfi, announced his apology for this task.

The indications suggest that Al-Kazemi’s mission will be easy in light of the support he received from most of the Shi’ite, Sunni, and Kurdish political blocs. Source
