Shafaq News / The National Al-Aqad Alliance headed by Faleh al-Fayyad announced on Saturday, his refusal to assign Adnan al-Zorfi to head the next government, calling for a return to the correct path and the nomination of an alternative candidate.
The coalition, which includes "Al-Atah , Sanad Blocs, the National Conference and other deputies", said in a statement received by Shafaq News, that it "confirms its steadfast stance on the constitutional entitlements and political contexts that the person in charge to be a prime minister should be a candidate for the majority from the largest component that must have the support of the national components."
He added that " he believes that the assignment that took place did not achieve this," calling for "a return to the right path and the nomination of a candidate who achieves the above categories to get out of the current crisis, and that this will not be accomplished without solidarity and broad national consensus."
On March 16th, the President of the Republic tasked Barham Salih, the head of the parliamentary victory bloc, Adnan al-Zorfi, to form the new government within 30 days.
This mandate came after the "Seven –Party Committee" of the Shiite forces failed to reach agreement on a specific candidate.
Al-Zorfi is facing rejection from prominent Shiite forces close to Iran, headed by Hadi al-Amiri, the Al-Fateh coalition, and the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki that pushed it to form a new seven-party committee to choose an alternative to al-Zorfi.
