Baghdad (NINA) - MP from the Ahrar bloc, Asmaa Al Musawi, described the atmosphere between the Iraqiya Slate and the State of Law Coalition as positive, saying that there are new understandings between the two sides to activate the National Council for Strategic Policies which will be given to Dr. Iyad Allawi, head of IS.
She said in a statement to NINA "there is an implicit agreement between the two sides on candidates of the National Alliance for the ministries of Interior and National Security, but the IS candidate for the Defense ministry has not yet been decided."
She added "the new atmosphere of understandings are different from the past, and will be reflected positively on the political situation."
The Prime Minister presented 3 candidates for the security ministries; Saadoun Al Dulaimi for the defense, Tawfiq Al Yasiri for the Interior ministry, and Riadh Ghareeb for National Security, but, the IS objected on Saadoun Al Dulaimi, and threatened to withdraw from the political process as it is responsible for the nomination of the Defense Minister.
