Abadi will be Iraq's new Prime Minister: Victory Alliance
Member of Victory Alliance, Nada Shaker Gawdat said on Saturday that current Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is the favorite candidate to assume a second term in office.
Gawdat pointed out that Victory Alliance is close to all political blocs, confirming the existence of understandings between her alliance and Moqtada al-Sadr's Saairun Alliance and Fatah Alliance, which is led by Badr militia's leader Hadi al-Amiri.
