Abd al-Mahdi says protests revealed errors in political system

Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi said on Wednesday that the demonstrations exposed the errors in the political system, adding that these errors must be addressed.

Implicitly announcing the decision to stay in power despite people’s calls on him to step down, Abd al-Mahdi noted that his government is determined to serve Iraq and its people, fight poverty and corruption and achieve the desired reform.

In a meeting with tribal leaders on Wednesday, Abd al-Mahdi spoke about the reform measures and solutions to enhance security and stability and meet the legitimate demands of the demonstrators and other citizens.
