Adel Abdul Mahdi's short tenure as Iraq's prime minister

After months of violent clashes, Adel Abdul Mahdi said he had no other choice, but to resign as Iraq's prime minister.

    Adel Abdul Mahdi became prime minister in October 2018, at a time of unrest in the country.

    His government promised to make things better, but said it needed more time but was unsuccessful.

    Now, Iraqi politics moves into uncharted territory.
