The Iraqi parliament debated on Tuesday who should fill two of the top jobs in the government of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

Abadi nominated Jaber al-Jaberi as defense minister and Riad Abdul Razak Gharib as interior minister.

Crucial in bringing about political stability in Iraq, both posts are greatly needed for reconciliation after years of exclusionary policies and political wrangling.
