MP for the coalition state of law has confirmed that Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi doesn’t have the required and essential votes to stay in the Office of Prime Minister.
He also confirmed that the regional and international support is allowing him to stay in the office. He indicated that some other MPs outside the National Alliance are supporting Al-Abadi to sustain their posts and interests. MP further indicated in his press interview that Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi has lost his strength and doesn’t have sufficient support by MPs to stay in the Prime Minister Office. He added that a large number of the members in the coalition state of law are saying that Al-Abadi increased the political issues in the country as he initiated steps in the administrative reforms.
The source further said that the international and regional support for Al-Abadi government is helping him to stay in the PM office. He also pointed out that there is a handsome support by some other Iraqi political parties to keep Al-Abadi as Iraqi Prime Minister in order to secure their posts and interests. He also gives a reference of the phone call between Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi and the U.S President Barak Obama and this phone discussion took place on Sunday evening. This “summary” phone call pointed out that the U.S President Barak Obama admired and congratulated Al-Abadi on the recent agreement between International Monetary Fund and the government of Iraq. It is important that the Iraqi Parliamentary Legal Committee had confirmed on 19th May 2016 that administrative reforms of Al-Abadi don’t meet with the demands of Iraqi people protesting on the Iraqi streets.
