Maliki softens rhetoric on the ongoing protests in Iraq

Maliki re-nominates same old faces in upcoming elections- MP
Former premier Nouri al-Maliki, a notorious politician who has close ties with the Iranian regime, said on Tuesday it is necessary to intensify efforts to form the new government which will meet the demands of the protesters.
In press statements, he called on the other political forces to move on with the other constitutional measures for the first session of the new parliament to convene.
This comes as Iraq is being gripped by mass protests in the south of the country. The Iranian regime has been seeking to mar the protests and defame the protesters. But Maliki today appeared to be softening rhetoric, according to experts.
