Iraq’s president Salih resigns rather than endorse pro-Iran PM

Iraqi President Barham Salih handed his resignation to parliament on Wednesday rather than “pick a new prime minister rejected by the demonstrators.” The constitution binds the president to nominate the candidate of the largest bloc without right of objection, This candidate Assad Al Eidani belongs to the Binaa bloc led by the pro-Iranian Hadi Al Amiri. Adel Abdel-Mahdi who stepped down last month meanwhile leads a caretaker government. Salih said his position on the issue is unconstitutional so he referred the decision to parliament. Iraq’ s president joins the PM in stepping down over protests raging since Oct. 1 over government corruption, poor services and Iran’s sweeping political influence, which have claimed About 500 dead and more than 20,000 wounded in clashes with security forces.
