Iraq's Minister of Electricity, Majed Mahdi Hantoosh [Hantoush], has reportedly submitted his resignation, following protests over repeated power cuts.
Anadolu Agency says the resignation was accepted by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.
Muqtada Al-Sadr, leader of the Sadrist movement, had recently called for the Minister to be sacked.
