Allawi and Maliki Meet Today for Ministries Allocation and Strategic Council Bill
|January 31, 2011||Filled under Uncategorized|
Baghdad, (AKnews) – The spokesman for Iraqiya Bloc said Sunday Ayad Allawi, the bloc leader, will meet with the Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki within the next 24 hours to discuss the dangling security ministries’ allocation as well as the authorities of the National Council for Strategic Policies.
Disputes between the political blocs over the security ministries, especially the interior and defense, endure. The Iraqi new cabinet was formed partially Dec. 21. Some nine posts from the overall 42 are suspended.
Although the political blocs insist the security posts should be assumed by neutral people, they have proposed members of their own blocs, who are rejected by the rival entities in parliament.
The spokesman of the Iraqiya list Shaker Kattab told AKnews the meeting between Allawi and Maliki will be “significant” to resolve the outstanding issues over ministries’ allocations.
Khattab added the two leaders are also expected to discuss the bill for the National Council for Strategic Policies, a concession promised to Allawi but still covered by clouds of doubt.
