(Hatha al-Youm | Iraq News)-

The Iraqi parliament's leadership decided to adjourn the legislative sessions to an unknown time after the parliament was able to pass the budget earlier on Thursday.The parliament failed

to vote on the candidates for the ministries of education and justice as most

of the MPs withdrew from the session after the budget law was passed.The parliament was

set to vote on Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi's candidate for the Education Ministry

Safana al-Hamdani and the candidate for the Justice Ministry Arkan Qadir, but

failed due to disputes over the two candidates.Abd al-Mahdi was

censured for presenting a candidate for the Education Ministry who holds only a

bachelor's degree and a modest biography. Former Education Ministry

candidate Shaimaa al-Hayali earlier resigned after her brother's alleged ties

with ISIS were unfolded.Abd

al-Mahdi said earlier in a document sent to the parliament that he will send names

for the defense and interior ministry candidates "within a short time, after

exerting efforts to make sure [they] would have the required support from the parliament."
