Abdul Mahdi to present remaining cabinet Tuesday, Fayadh for interior

Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi has chosen the rest of his ministerial cabinet and the eight ministerial portfolios will be presented to the parliament for a vote Tuesday, sources told The Baghdad Post.

The sources pointed out that along the ministers chosen are Faleh al-Fayadh for minister of interior, Faisal al-Jarba for defense minister, and Saba al-Tai for minister of education.

The remaining nominations include Nouri al-Karbouli for minister of planning, Abdel-Amir Al-Hamdani for minister of culture, Qusay al-Suhail for minister of higher education, Dara Noureddine for minister of justice, and Hala Korkis for minister of migration and displaced.

This comes following weeks of disputes between the political blocs over the vacant ministerial posts. Fayadh has been one of the most controversial candidates, with Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and the Saairun Alliance having been adamantly opposed to his nomination.
