The main Sunni Arab political bloc quit the Iraqi cabinet on Wednesday, plunging the government into crisis on a day when suicide bombers killed more than 70 people with massive strikes in the capital.
The Sunni Accordance Front said its five cabinet members and deputy Prime Minister Salam al-Zobaie would resign from Prime Minister‘s government.
“This is probably the most serious political crisis we have faced since the passage of the constitution. If unresolved the implications are grave,” the remaining deputy prime minister, Barhim Salih, a Kurd, told Reuters.
It seems likely that the al Maliki is going to fall; I look for some sort of US sponsored event in the next few days.
