Member of Basra Provincial Council Anwar
al-Ajwadi censured the federal government, saying it is not serious in dealing
with the province's crises.
In a press statement, Ajwadi said that the federal government and the Ministry of Water Resources clearly insist on keeping Basra in such a disastrous condition, which reveals the failure to treat the province's crises.
Parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halbusi visited Basra Tuesday, three days after he was elected.
