Basra Council to ask Eidani to choose between his two posts


Basra Provincial Council is planning to leave the choice for Asaad al-Eidani to stay in his post as the governor, or to keep his parliamentary seat, as a representative of Nasr bloc, a government source said.

Eidani has to submit his answer within 72 hours and to take a decisive decision to keep a post and resign from the other, the source added.

The governors of Baghdad and Basra, respectively Atwan al-Atwani and Asaad al-Eidani, have been elected members of parliament and have continued to exercise their functions as governors.

Regarding his position as a parliamentarian, Eidani stated that he was prepared to give up the membership of the legislature to remain governor of Basra, “in order to serve the people of my province.”
