Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi's nomination for the position of Finance Minister has withdrawn his candidacy, a week after the withdrawal of his proposed Oil Minister.
According to Gulf Today, Ali Allawi (pictured) cited “political interventions and partisan bickering” for his decision.
The US-educated former banker had already served as finance minister following the US-led invasion in 2003.
