In a statement to a news agency, Kanna said that the set-up of the new government, as was announced by Al-Abadi, was “a big disappointment for all Christians and a shock for everybody. How did those in charge of the formation of the government use the share of the Christian component in such a disrespectful manner? We are very resentful of the way the Christian component has been marginalized in Al-Abadi’s government.”
