Abadi 'still shackled by Maliki's legacy': Sadr


Moqtada al-Sadr, leader of the Sadrist Movement, lashed out at Iran Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) terror group, asserting that the government is the sole entity assigned to maintain security and possess arms.

He also added that incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is still shackled by the legacy of his predecessor Nouri al-Maliki.

Sadr yet attacked the electoral law and elections' commission, saying the people should stand up to corrupt parties.

Also, spokesman for the Sadrist Movement Salah al-Obeidi said on Friday that the Integrity Commission is working for certain personalities and parties.

"The problem is about covering up the corrupt by the regulatory bodies. Some institutions such as Integrity Commission turned out to be a tool at the hands of some parties," he added in a statement.

Three years ago, Mosul fell to ISIS, and no regulatory body moved to call those responsible for this disaster to account.
