The European Union (EU) Tuesday said that it
expects a transparent transition process towards the nomination of a new prime
minister in Iraq.
The EU has taken note of the Iraqi parliament's acceptance of the
resignation of Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, an EU spokesperson told
"An inclusive dialogue is the only way forward out of the political crisis
and to address the protestor's demands, notably with a view to putting an end
to corruption, mismanagement, and implementing the much-needed economic
reforms," said the spokesperson.
"It is crucial that there is an end to the violence and that security
forces to refrain from violence against unarmed protestors," stressed the EU
