Iraq’s parliament Monday elected Haider al Abadi, as the country’s prime minister, approved nearly all of his proposed cabinet.
Abadi put off until next week a vote on defense and interior ministers.
Hadi al-Ameri, a notorious agent of the Iranian regime in Iraq, who had been rumored to be the next interior minister was kept out of the cabinet for the moment. Hadi al-Ameri, leads the Badr Corps (Badr Organization) created in Iran in 1980s.
Ameri’s name was withdrawn shortly before Parliament met on Monday, New York Times reported.
