Iraqi Member of Parliament Aliya Nassif said that the Parliament postponed questioning of Iraqi Minister of Planning and Trade, Salman al-Jumaili, to next week's session
Jumaili was slated to be questioned on Saturday but the session was postponed, Nassif said in a press conference on Sunday.
The delay comes as the minister had travel abroad, she added.
On Wednesday, Nassif accused Jumaili of attempting not to attend the questioning session as she is accusing him of abusing his office.
Jumaili gives more privileges to Shiite directors than Sunni ones, Nassif said adding that all decisions that were taken by the minister regarding delegating the directors to certain areas were based on sectarian reasons Last Modified: 05 14 2017 05:38 PM
