Iraqi deputy PM resigns, faces corruption investigation



Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi meet with Iraqi ministers in Baghdad August 9, 2015.



One of Iraq's three deputy prime ministers resigned on Monday and will be investigated for corruption, officials said, the first tangible result of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's push to tackle corruption in the face of mounting unrest.

Emboldened by widespread anti-government protests and a call by a leading Shi'ite Muslim cleric for tougher action, Abadi announced measures over the weekend aimed at reforming a system critics say hands high office to unqualified candidates and encourages corruption.

He proposed scrapping Iraq's multiple vice president and deputy prime minister positions, currently shared out along sectarian lines.








While parliament is expected to take up the proposals on Tuesday, the departure of Baha al-Araji, deputy prime minister for energy affairs, suggested Abadi had already gained the support of powerful Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.

Sadr, whose opinion holds sway over tens of thousands of followers and militia fighters, heads the movement to which Araji belongs. In a statement published on his website, Sadr ordered Araji to resign and forbade him from leaving the country pending judicial procedures.

Dhiya al-Asadi, a senior member of Sadr's movement, said Araji had submitted his resignation.

Abadi had also called for an end to sectarian and party quotas for government positions, the reopening of corruption investigations and the reassignment of officials' security details to the ministries of defense and interior.

Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar, spokesman for Iraq's Supreme Judicial Council, said the public prosecutor had ordered a corruption investigation into Araji.

Reuters could not immediately reach Araji for comment.

Abadi, who has struggled to build broad political support for meaningful reform, received a boost from senior Shi'ite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in his sermon on Friday. The octogenarian, who wields authority few Iraqi politicians would openly challenge, urged Abadi to "strike with an iron fist" against corruption.
