Iraq: Protesters Hit the Streets As Parliament Prepares for No-Confidence Vote

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Baghdad Sunday to call for political reforms and combat corruption.

Footage shows the protesters carrying flags of Iraq and signs which accuse politicians of ruining the country. Protesters called on the Prime Minister-designate Muhammed Tawfiq Allawi to step down and decried security forces’ use of violence against protesters.

The demonstrations coincided with the extraordinary session of the Iraqi parliament for vote of confidence on Allawi’s government.

Amid the highly conflicted political positions towards the government, the parliament postponed, for the third time, the voting session on granting confidence to the government of Allawi, due to the lack of a quorum, while Parliament Speaker Mohammed Al- Halbousi affirmed that the constitutional deadline for the vote will expire on Monday.
