Abd Al-Mahdi - Prime Minister of Iraq's official website
The parliamentary security and defense committee blamed the government of Adil Abd al-Mahdi for the delay in passing a bill to remove US forces from Iraq.

MP Basr al-Zayadi said that the delay in passing the legislation removing the US troops from Iraq takes place due to the government's negligence of the questions posed by some parliament members concerning the nature of the foreign troops' presence in Iraq.

In April, MP  Fadel al-Fatlawi of the Fatah Alliance said the parliament will hold a hearing session for the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi to get information about the foreign troops inside Iraq.

According to Fatlawi, the parliament wants to know about the number offoreign troops inside the Iraqi territory and the nature of their work.

"All the political blocs agreed on one vision: the need to remove foreign forces from Iraq and preserve national sovereignty, but we must know the number of foreign forces and the nature of their work so that the parliament can legislate the law," Fatlawi said in a press statement.
