SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The incumbent Iraqi prime minister on Sunday appointed a new spokesperson for the government.
The Iraqi news agency (INA) reported that Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani appointed Basim Alawadi as the spokesperson of the Iraqi government.
54-year-old Alwadi holds a technical diploma since 1989. Back then, he was stationed in the United Kingdom in 2001 where he worked as a political analyst and researcher, and used to ex-adviser for several senior Iraqi officials.
Sudani’s cabinet took office in October last year after nearly a year of political deadlock since a parliamentary election in October 2021.
