Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi has submitted his resignation letter to parliament, Al-Arabiya television reported on Saturday.

“Abdul Mahdi has officially handed over his letter of resignation to the Iraqi parliament,” the Saudi-funded channel said.

Abdul-Mahdi said on Friday he would submit his resignation to the House of Representatives for the purpose of withdrawing confidence from his current government in response to an appeal by Iraq’s Shi’ite religious authority over bloody protests in parts of the country for nearly two months.
