After six months, Abd al-Mahdi fails to complete his cabinet


Voting on the candidates for the remaining ministries in Adil Abd al-Mahdi's government will not take place in the parliamentary session set to take place on Wednesday, according to the session's agenda.


The parliament will address different topics during the session.

The parliament, according to Wednesday's agenda, will consider the submitted appeals on the validity of the membership of some parliament members, as well as the first reading a draft law to amend the national presses law No. 5 for 1999.

The table also includes the first reading of the mineral investment draft law, and the first reading of the draft law amending the law of social welfare No. 126 for 1980.

On October 24, Abd al-Mahdi managed to get the parliamentary approval on 14 out of 22 ministries. However disagreement between political blocs especially on security ministries have thwarted Abd al-Mahdi's efforts to complete the cabinet in a short time.
