Iraqi parliament approves appointment of defense, interior, justice ministers

Published: Updated:

Iraq’s parliament approved the appointment of three more ministers on Monday, including the defense and interior portfolios put forward by Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, lawmakers said.

But the nominee for minister of education, the only remaining portfolio, failed to get enough votes.

Najah al-Shammari, Yaseen al-Yasiri and Faruq Ameen were confirmed as ministers for defence, interior and justice respectively.
