Abadi Rejects Deadline for New Cabinet

By John Lee.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has called for parliament to either support or reject his calls for a technocratic government, pushing back against a looming deadline for a new cabinet, according to a report from AFP.

He said Parliament must decide if it wants him "to present ministers from the political blocs or to present technocratic ministers from outside the blocs."

Lawmakers voted to give Abadi until Thursday to present a new cabinet line-up, with the speaker's office terming it "the final deadline".
