The Secretary-General hopes the election of the president will pave the way for the swift formation of an inclusive government in line with constitutional timelines, said Farhan Haq, deputy spokesman of Guterres, in a statement on Wednesday, Xinhua reported.

Salih has nominated Shiite politician Adel Abdul-Mahdi as Prime Minister and tasked him with forming a new government.
