Parliament Speaker is Sacked

By John Lee.

Iraqi lawmakers voted on Friday to remove the parliament speaker, Salim al-Juburi (pictured), and his deputies.

The move further delays Prime Minister al-Abadi’s efforts to appoint a new ‘technocrat’ cabinet.

It came a day after a fist-fight reportedly broke out between lawmakers in the parliament hall following an overnight sit-in.
