PM Abdul-Mahdi

Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has said he has no plans to leave the office, adding that only the Parliament has the authority to remove him from his position.

In remarks during his weekly press conference, Abdul-Mahdi has also revealed that certain political parties are reportedly attempting to hamper the process of completing the new Iraqi government as a few ministerial posts are yet to be filled due to political disputes among the parties.

However, Abdul-Mahdi did not clearly accuse any sides, but pointed out that he has been close to completing his cabinet despite the obstacles hindering him.

He also denied rumors that he had any plans to leave the office, considering such claims as "far from the truth".
