The State of Law coalition, led by Nuri al-Maliki, announced on Sunday that it did not vote for the government of the Prime Minister-designate, Mustafa al-Kazimi, while revealing the reason.
The coalition said in a statement, that “he made great efforts with the rest of the political blocs to form the new government, in order to address the major challenges facing Iraq in the economic, security and health fields.”

He added: “During the negotiations, mechanisms were agreed upon to choose the candidates for the new government, provided that the Prime Minister-designate deals with all political blocs according to one approach.”

However, “the path of forming the government began to take a different course from what was agreed upon, which called us to make additional efforts to correct options and nominate candidates with competence, integrity and leadership capabilities from sincere energies in Iraqi society.”

And Abizaid: “And with great regret, our sincere efforts did not cease to correct this path, so the government formation presented by the designate to the political blocs contradicts the aspirations of the Iraqi people, as it includes a number of controversial candidates who did not meet the required specifications of competence, integrity and acceptability.”

He continued: “On this basis, the coalition of state law declares that he did not participate in forming this government and did not vote for it in the House of Representatives, and leaves the option to the rest of the members of the Council to take the appropriate decision regarding it.”
