Likely to vote on the rest of Al-Kazimi’s ministers before the holiday
Parliament Speaker Khadija Ali decided, on Tuesday, to hold a session of parliament next Thursday to give confidence to the remaining ministries in the government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, while pointing to the Prime Minister’s confirmation of the introduction of the ministerial cabinet before Eid Al-Fitr.
Ali told “Shafaq News” that “the Prime Minister spoke two days ago that he would submit the full ministerial cabinet to the House of Representatives before Eid al-Fitr,” noting that “the Presidency did not inform members of parliament of the date of the session.”
She explained that “it is possible that the parliament session will be held to give confidence to the remaining ministries in the government next Thursday, according to Al-Kazemi’s pledge to the members of the House of Representatives to complete the cabinet.”
After midnight Wednesday, May 6, the Iraqi parliament voted to grant confidence in the ministerial curriculum to Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s government and 15 ministers in the cabinet, but five candidates did not gain confidence, and they are the ministries of trade, agriculture, culture, immigration and justice.
The House of Representatives also postponed the vote on the candidates of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Oil until another time, due to the lack of agreement to nominate the candidates. Source
