Three Iraqi government ministers resign over house speaker’s ouster



BAGHDAD: Three government ministers backed by ousted Iraqi parliament speaker Mohammed Halbousi will resign their positions in protest of a ruling by Iraq’s top court to terminate his tenure on Tuesday, a statement by Halbousi’s Taqaddom party said.
Slamming the court decision as “blatantly unconstitutional” and “clear political targeting,” the party also said it would boycott meetings of the ruling State Administration Coalition, while its lawmakers would boycott parliament sessions.
