Weekend UPDATE for April 11 -12, 2020
Political analyst, Wasiq Al Hashemi, confirmed on Saturday that the assignment of the new Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, came with the blessing of the seven Shiite forces and with the blessing of the United States, indicating that Al-Kazemi initiated negotiations to form a government.
The biggest obstacle to the negotiations is the coronavirus crisis and the budget for this year.
Hezbollah brigades have come out against Al-Kazemi saying he’s backed by USA and designed to have American influence. They are sanctioning billboards in refusal of Al-Kazemi saying he will have a difficult task passing.
