Iraqi gov. cabinet holds meeting on resignation amid ongoing unrest

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Iraq’s embattled Prime Minister, Adil Abdul Mahdi, chaired on Saturday an extraordinary ministerial council session to discuss his government’s resignation letter to the national parliament amid ongoing unrest.

Abdul Mahdi announced on Friday his intention to resign after the bloodiest day of protests in Baghdad, Nasiriya, and Najaf since they began, during which security forces killed upward of 40 demonstrators. Since the start of October, over 400 have been reported killed.

The prime minister has said his decision came in response to a call from the top Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani.

Although some demonstrators celebrated Abdul Mahdi’s announcement, protests seem poised to continue.

When they began two months ago, demonstrations called for improved public services, increased access to jobs, and an end to the corruption that plagues the country’s various institutions. They later also demanded a complete overhaul of the government and denounced the political elite.

Abdul Mahdi said in a statement that his government “did everything possible to respond to the demands of the demonstrators and provide reform packages, employment, plots of land, and important legislative bills.”

The PM stressed the “principle of peaceful transfer of power in the democratic system,” adding “achieving the interests of the people is a goal that tops everything.”

The prime minister called on his cabinet members to continue their work until the new government is formed.

During its session, the cabinet reviewed “the complex circumstances in which the government was formed, the challenges it faced, and what it has achieved.”

The statement added that the cabinet voted at the end of the meeting on the resignation of the Director of the Office of the Prime Minister Mohammed al-Hashemi and the Secretary-General of the Council of Ministers Hamid al-Ghazi.

The Iraqi Parliament is scheduled to meet on Sunday.

Iraq’s cabinet approves PM Abdul Mahdi’s resignation

Reuters, IraqSaturday, 30 November 2019

Iraq’s cabinet approved Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi’s resignation, a statement from his office said on Saturday, but parliament has yet to withdraw its support for the prime minister at a session on Sunday, making it official.

“The government has done all it can to respond to the demands of protesters and enact reforms ... and calls the parliament to find solutions (to unrest) in its coming session,” the statement said.

Iraqi protesters have welcomed the resignation but say it is not enough. They demand the overhaul of a political system they say is corrupt and keeps them in poverty and without opportunity.

Populist cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, who has supported protests but not thrown his full weight behind them, said late on Friday that demonstrations should continue.

“The next candidate for prime minister should be chosen by popular referendum and picked from among five proposed candidates,” al-Sadr suggested in a statement on Twitter. He said protesters should meanwhile press their demands but reject violence.

The burning by demonstrators of the Iranian consulate in Najaf on Wednesday escalated unrest and led to Abdul Mahdi’s resignation. In Nasiriyah, deadly clashes erupted on Thursday hours after the torching of the Najaf consulate.

Nasiriyha was the scene of the worst violence to hit war-weary Iraq since anti-government protests began in Baghdad on October 1.

Many Iraqis fear violence will continue to escalate as angry families mourn dead relatives and the government moves slowly to enact only limited reform.

Weeks of political wrangling are expected before a successor to Abdul Mahdi is picked and a new government formed.

Iraq’s semi-official Human Rights Commission said on Saturday those responsible for the killings of protesters must be brought to justice and that it would gather evidence for prosecution.

A statement issued by the commission did not acknowledge the prime minister’s resignation.

The International Committee of the Red Cross urged a halt to rising casualties. “Firearms and live ammunition must only be used as a last resort,” it said in a statement.
