The Prime Minister of Iraq allowed his resignation

Iraqi Prime Minister Al-Kazimi allowed his resignation when the situation in the country worsened

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazimi admitted that he could leave his post if the political situation in the country worsens. TASS writes about this.

“If the [political] situation becomes more complicated, then I will announce my resignation from the post of Prime Minister of Iraq in due course,” the prime minister said.

Earlier, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on the conflicting parties in Iraq to immediately take steps to de-escalate and prevent any violence. According to him, Guterres is following with concern the ongoing protests in Iraq, during which demonstrators entered government buildings.

The demonstrations began at the end of July after Muhammad al-Sudani, a representative of the Coordination Platform party representing Shiites in parliament, was nominated for the post of prime minister of the country. Supporters of Muqtada al-Sadr believe that he should be the only candidate for the post from the Shiites, so they continue to protest to this day.
