Mustafa Khadimi to be New Iraq PM

Mustafa al Khadimi

Baghdad| Iraq’s parliament chose American backed former intelligence chief Mustafa Khadimi as its new Prime Minister.

Mustafa has strong bonds with America and a reputation of progmatism, reports New York Times. With this, Iraq will have its first government after 5 months. The last one resigned in November after the persistent anti-government protests.

Although Mr. al-Kadhimi faces a litany of problems, his presence on the political stage signals a degree of flexibility in a political system that seemed deadlocked. The grip of Shiite political parties with religious ties may also be loosening.

Since 2005, the prime ministers of Iran had been from Shiite political parties who have inclination towards Iran. Mr. al-Kadhimi, whose political engagement was more secular, is thought to be more open to the anti-government protesters, many of whom have espoused anti-Iranian positions. He is also thought to be willing to protect them against the Iranian-backed militias that have previously attacked and killed them.
