It was constitutionally supposed to appoint a new candidate within 15 days of The date of the resignation. We were very late from the appointment and were not commissioned except in the beginning of February when Professor Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi was assigned, which shows the crisis of the political process, but rather the crisis of the constitutional powers and institutions entrusted with this matter.
