The Iraqi Parliament’s newly elected speaker, Mohamed al-Halbusi, arrived in Erbil earlier on Saturday to hold meetings with KDP President Masoud Barzani and security chief Masrour Barzani. 

Hussein al-Yassari, a Karbala representative, said Thursday that al-Halbusi promised to visit Karbala after the pilgrimage to the city and ensuing events for the 10th of Muharram (Ashura).

Yassari said that Halbusi's visit to Karbala aims to review the needs of the province. Halbusi visited Basra on Tuesday.

Iraq's Parliament elected Sunni, pro-Iran lawmaker Mohammed al-Halbusi as speaker last Saturday, marking an important step towards establishing a new government four months after an inconclusive national election.
