Iraq: political crisis reopens community divisions in Parliament

Haider al-Abadi said that the current blockade of Parliament threatens not only the anti-corruption reforms, such as the war against the Group Islamic State.

Since the beginning of the week that Kurds and Shiites reject to approve the new proposed by the Prime Minister.

The tensions led to the suspension of the Parliament's sessions Wednesday and Thursday.

The rebel MPs criticize the Chief Executive's decision to distribute the posts in Government by communities, having voted in favour of the dismissal of the President of Parliament, a Sunni.

Since the beginning of the week that several Shiite dignitaries protest in Basra to ask for a Government of technocrats to overcome the divisions of the country community.

The Prime Minister had proposed this option in February, before giving in to pressure from the major parties in Parliament.
