Vote to dissolve Nineveh council over corruption adjourned

The Iraqi parliament on Thursday postponed voting on a resolution to dissolve the Nineveh provincial council, over accusations of corruption and granting high-level posts for money.

Nineveh MP Nayef al-Shammari said in press remarks that some members of the council are accused of corruption, adding that an auction was held to sell the post of the governor currently and even in the past.

There is a consensus among parliamentarians to vote on this decision, Shammari said, adding that some political parties, however, want to stop such decision as they are benefiting from the corruption operations carried out by the current council.
