Jaheishi calls PM to issue travel ban on corrupted officials


A member of the coalition of Alliance Towards Reform, Hassan al-Jaheishi, called on Sunday Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi to issue a travel-ban  against all officials who are accused of corruption.


al-Jaheishi said in a statement that "the failure to hold officials accountable by the previous governments led to most of the crises and deterioration in the country economy and security.”


Abdul Mahdi began talks with Iraqi political parties to discuss the formation of the government as he demanded ministerial candidates to submit their resumes, informed political sources stated on Friday.


Abdul Mahdi, according to sources, is seeking to finish selecting all the ministers before the end of the 30 days, determined by the Iraqi constitution, pointing out that he still faces difficulties and pressures in choosing ministers.


The announcement of the Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, head of the Iraqi Sadrist Movement, Wednesday that he will not nominate anyone to hold any ministerial post in the formation of the next Iraqi government provided a strong support to Abdul Mahdi to choose ministers freely, the sources added.
