Iraq: Parliament approves the government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi

Representatives of the Iraqi parliament in Baghdad said the parliament approved a majority of ministers appointed by Prime Minister-designate Mustafa al-Kadhimi on Wednesday for a new government to take over after months of deadlock.

The deputies said that al-Kadhimi’s choices for the ministries of interior, defense, finance, electricity, and other key portfolios were approved by parliament during the vote.

However, a number of candidates for other ministries were rejected, which means that Al-Kadhimi will start his term without a full government.
