“The President of the Republic has fulfilled his role in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution and asked the nominee of the largest political bloc to form a government. This step is in line with the Constitution and the democratic political process. It is important now for all political groups in Parliament to cooperate in forming an inclusive government that reflects the wishes of the Iraqi people for security, prosperity and democracy”, Mr. Mladenov said.
“I urge all political leaders to work within the framework of the Constitution and show moderation in their statements and actions. The Iraqi Security Forces should refrain from actions that may be seen as interference in matters related to the democratic transfer of political authority”, the SRSG added.
