Spokesman for Sadr: Abadi among candidates to head government

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi

Spokesman for Leader of Sadrist Movement Muqtada al Sadr, Salah al Obeidi said Monday that current Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al Abadi is among the candidates to head the next government.


In press statements, Obeidi explained that the issue of forming the next government will be clearer after Eid al-Fitr holidays, pointing out that if Abadi gains the confidence of other parties which won seats in the Parliamentary elections there will be no obstacles facing him to assume another term in office.


The Parliamentary elections was marked by record low turnout. It was the first since Iraq declared victory over the ISIS group and the fourth since the 2003 US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
