22/12/2018 – 23:56


ERBIL – Iraqi PM Adil Abdul-Mahdi will submit five new candidates to the parliament for the remaining ministerial posts, a lawmaker revealed on Saturday.

Badir al-Ziyadi, an MP from Sa’eroun Alliance led by the Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, told BasNews that Abdul-Mahdi wants to present five new nominees “as he knows well that the MPs will not approve the current ones.”

“This week will be decisive for concluding the new cabinet before the end of this year,” al-Ziyadi said.

The Council of Representatives is expected to hold a session on Sunday in hopes of voting on the five nominees and fill the remaining ministerial posts.
