BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: A leading figure of the Dawlat al-Qanoon Alliance, Dr. Ali al-Dabbagh, called on the Iraqi National Alliance (INA) to propose its nominee for the position of Iraq’s prime minister.
“The problem is that until now the INA has not proposed its nominee for the prime minister’s position,” al-Dabbagh told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
He explained that once the INA proposes its nominee for this post, the nominee will be compared to a competitor from the Dawlat al-Qanoon Alliance.
“The comparison between the nominees will rely on mechanisms to decide which nominee is more suited to hold this post,” al-Dabbagh added.
He noted that although the INA has rejected the Dawlat al-Qanoon’s nominee (Nouri al-Maliki) to occupy the position of Iraq’s prime minister, the Dawlat al-Qanoon Alliance is committed to the coalition with the INA.
