SLC MP: Nijaifi turns Parliament into "fighting arena"

Asadi added "Nijaifi exploited his post in adopting political projects away from impartiality and neutrality," noting that "He turned the Parliament into an arena for political disputes."
"Some MPs intend to withdraw confidence from Nijaifi," he added, clarifying that "This request should be settled within the Iraqi National Alliance and then among other political blocs since it is related to all blocs in the Iraqi Parliament."
