Sadr: Abd al-Mahdi's resignation not end of corruption

Sadrist Movement Leader Muqtada al-Sadr said on Friday that the resignation of Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi was one of the revolution outcome, but does not mean the end of corruption.

Sadr thanked protesters and the Supreme Marja' as Abd Al-Mahdi has resigned, and proposed holding a public referendum to select a new prime minister.

Prime Minister's nomination should be through a popular referendum on five candidates, Sadr said, suggesting that ballot boxes be put in the squares of protests.
