Nouri al-Maliki’s days as Iraqi premier appear to be numbered after his own party seemed resigned to finding another candidate for the post, The Washington Post reported.
Iraqi lawmakers have said Shiite politicians met sunday night to discuss about other alternative candidates for Iraqi premiership.
The Dawa party of Maliki issued a statement Saturday which echoed a gsermon delivered on behalf of Ayatollah Sistani on Friday, which urged politicians not to hold on to their positions and to expedite the formation of a new overnment, The Washington Post report added.
