Fatah Alliance denies nominating PM candidate

A source in the Fatah Alliance denied on Sunday the party had nominated any person for the post of prime minister.

Prime Minister Adel Abd al-Mahdi announced on Friday that he would submit his resignation to the parliament, after two months of deadly protests that caused the death of hundreds of Iraqis, according to reports.

The Iraqi government spokesman Saad al-Hadithi announced, on Saturday, that Abd al-Mahdi handed his resignation to the parliament.
