Reasons to come home early?
The meetings either went well or they were not in agreement. Given all the published news, I would say that the meetings went well, and home either early or according to his set schedule. IMO, and my opinion only, I think he came home to arrive on their weekend, so that he could hit the ground running on Sunday.
He has a position to fill as minister of finance which he could sit in and act, or he needs to appoint someone. He also needs to announce a new CBI Gov. along with another handful of ministers.
So lots to do.
Lastly, I think Abadi has front row tickets for when the fat lady is going to get up and sing, thus, his urgency to go home. Lastly, lastly, they are serving cookies for dessert at the end of her concert.
