Shafaq News / The Iraqi forces alliance led by Muhammad al-Halbousi, revealed on Monday, the number of ministries that he will obtain in the new government, headed by Mustafa al-Kathemi.
The coalition's deputy, Noura Al-Bajari, told Shafaq News that "until now, there has not been a final agreement with Prime Minister-designate Mustafa Al-Kathemi regarding the names of the candidates for ministerial portfolios, which are part of the Iraqi Forces Alliance, according to the component’s eligibility and electoral right, and we expect this file to be finally settled during the next two days. "
Al-Bajari indicated that "the number of ministries of the Iraqi Forces Alliance will be six ministries in the new government and this is according to negotiation, which is currently being carried out by the Ministry of Planning, Defense, Education or Higher Education, as this matter has not been decided once and for all."
It should be noted that Al-Halbousi's alliance has 40 seats out of 329 seats in Parliament, before Khamis Al-Khanjar announced splitting from the Iraqi forces and forming a new coalition.
These developments indicate a conflict taking place in the dark inside the political alliances over the portfolios in Al-Kathemi’s government.
According to Shafaq News sources, the ministries will be divided into the following components: 11 ministries for the Shiite component, 6 for the Sunni component, 4 for the Kurdish component, and one ministry for minorities (Christians or Turkmen).
