Abadi Accepts Resignation of 6 Ministers

By John Lee.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has accepted the resignations of the ministers of oil, transport, housing and construction, water resources and industry, as well as interior, which had been previously announced.

Abadi has previously called for the cabinet to include technocrats, a call later taken up by Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, but has faced major opposition from powerful political parties that rely on control of ministries for patronage and funds.
