Iraq lawmakers approve government of Prime Minister-designate Kadhimi

0 33

Iraqi lawmakers approved a new government on Wednesday after six months without one as parties squabbled until the last minute over Cabinet seats in backroom deals.

Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, Iraq’s intelligence chief and a former journalist, will head the new government.

He will begin his term without a full Cabinet, however, after several ministerial candidates were rejected.
