Iraq's parliament has postponed its vote on incoming Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi's cabinet for two hours.


Parliament's First Deputy Speaker Hassan Kareem al-Kaabi chaired the Wednesday-night meeting that included heads and representatives of the various political blocs.


At the request of the political blocs, Kaabi decided to postpone the vote for two hours in order to provide time to study the government program and Abdul Mahdi's choices for ministerial positions.
