The Iraqi Council of Representatives, Saturday, set the session next Monday to complete the vote on the rest of the ministers of the new government.

On October 25, the House of Representatives voted to give confidence to 14 ministers in the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi out of 22 ministers.

The Speaker of Parliament Mohammad Halboussi, in his address to the members of the House of Representatives said "The next meeting will be set for completing the cabinet ministeries."

On October 25, some political forces refused to vote on Abdul Mahdi's 8 candidates because of political differences, most notably the defense and interior ministers.
