Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi has introduced a new candidate for the Ministry of Education to the presidency of parliament, MP Karim al-Elewi said, adding that the new candidate is a university professor from Mosul.

Abd al-Mahdi and Parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halbousi have made a political deal to complete the government formation within this week, Elewi added.

Abd al-Mahdi already sent the biography of the new education ministry candidate to the presidency of parliament on Saturday evening, Elewi explained.

The Iraqi Parliament earlier in June finally elected three candidates to key ministerial posts in the government of Abd al-Mahdi.

The parliament elected Najah Hassan al-Shamari as Minister of Defense, Yassin al-Yasiri for the Minister of Interior, and Farouq Amin Shwani as the Minister of Justice.

However, the parliament failed to pass the education ministry candidates - most recently Zahida Abdullah.
