UN calls Iraqi political parties to support Abdel Mahdi

Prime Minister Adil Abdel Mahdi

The United Nations (UN) called on Sunday all Iraqi political parties to support Prime Minister Adil Abdel Mahdi and his government formation efforts and called for “meaningful” female representation therein.

In meetings with Iraqi leaders, the Special Representative for Iraq of the United Nations Secretary-General, Jan Kubis, “notes their intention to facilitate the formation of the next government within the constitutional timeline,” a UN statement read.

Kubis expressed his happiness at hearing officials and leaders’ desire for a “patriotic administration with a reform-minded programme away from sectarian and partisan quotas and corruption, with partnership participation of all components and segments of Iraq.”

Kubis called on parties to cooperate with Abdul Mahdi “in the government formation process, prioritizing the well-being of the country and its people over partisan interests.”
