Iraq may dissolve parliament amid political crisis: state TV

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq’s parliamentary speaker Salim al-Jabouri may dissolve the assembly as the country struggles to overcome a political crisis, state TV said.

The channel cited an unidentified spokesman for Jabouri.

The announcement came after a chaotic parliamentary session in which lawmakers scuffled over a plan to overhaul the government that aims to tackle graft.
