Iraqi independent MP Kadhim Al-Sayadi called on incoming Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi to waive his French citizenship as a basic requirement for his election as prime minister.


"Abdul Mahdi is required to drop his French nationality and present a disclosure form of his money and family funds,” Sayadi said in press remarks.


He also stressed that Abdul Mahdi should apologize to the people for the clip in which he said that his office has spent a million dollars, adding that this money should be returned to the Iraqi treasury.


Abdul Mahdi is expected to announce the formation of his new government on Wednesday.
