Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi on Saturday called on the parliament to debate his resignation.
Speaking at a parliamentary session, Abdel-Mahdi said his government has done everything in its power to meet the demands of protesters, according to a statement issued by the government.
The premier called on the parliament “to find the proper solutions during its next session” in reference to his resignation.
Iraq has been rocked by mass protests since early October against poor living conditions and corruption. Protesters’ demands later spiraled into calls for dissolving Abdul-Mahdi’s government.
