He added: “The prime minister-designate wants through this to send a positive message to the Sunni component of the Ministry of Defense, as well as the Finance Minister Fuad Hussein, to satisfy the Kurdish component, as well as the Democratic Party, which continues to pressure the prime minister-designate in relation to the Ministry of Finance,” noting that ” Allawi is trying to break free from the pressure exerted on him by some political parties, as some parties seek political gains in his government.
The deputy continued: Allawi is seeking to satisfy all the blocks and components for the sake of the success of his government, pointing out that “the Prime Minister-designate may depend on the criterion of integrity and freedom from political pressure in forming his government, and this comes through the use of some old ministers.”
