Abd al-Mahdi officially designates his gov’t as caretaker

Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi on Wednesday said that the current government has turned into a caretaker one, noting that no government program can be completely implemented within one year.

Abd al-Mahdi affirmed that he would be supportive to the new prime minister after being chosen, adding that protests have given the government a momentum to implement reform.

The continuous peaceful transfer of power is very important, Abd al-Mahdi said, noting that the government will continue to take urgent decisions required to continue the work of state institutions.
