  1. Mr Ra’ouf Hakeem has the responsibilities on the rights of all the other minority people … he feels “something is better than nothing or thinking provisionaly to save the future of his party”.In the view of President,by offering this ministry to Mr Raouf Hakeem,he may be thinking there would be many diplomatic advantages.On the other hand, there are many people still feel hot under the collar(ambarrassed) about the coalition with the Government.
