Adil Abdel Mahdi
Iraqi MP Heider Fouady affirmed Saturday that Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi will announce names of the remaining eight ministers in the latest government lineup within two days.

On Nov. 21, Mahdi said he will present nominees to fill out his cabinet to parliament for approval next week.

Mahdi and 14 ministers were sworn in on Oct. 25. The parliament did not confirm the remaining eight nominees, including the interior and defense posts that are under dispute.

He promised that the cabinet members would be subject to periodic review and could be dismissed if necessary.
