Prime Minister of Iraq Adel Abdul Mahdi announces plans to offer his resignation to the country's parliament as a reaction to the ongoing protest movement.
Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi condemns the unilateral American bombings inside Iraq, saying the U.S. strikes are a "violation of Iraqi sovereignty", and a "dangerous escalation that threatens the security of Iraq and the region."
Iraqi President Barham Salih rejects the nomination of Basra governor Asaad Al Eidani for Prime Minister of Iraq, stating that protesters will also oppose him due to his connections with Iranian-backed parties. As the constitution doesn't give him the power to officially veto candidates, Salih threatens to resign instead.
The largest parliamentary bloc, Binaa Bloc, including Fatah Alliance and State of Law Coalition, nominates Basra governor Asaad Al Eidani to succeed Adil Abdul-Mahdi as Prime Minister of Iraq. Protesters reject the nomination, seeing him as part of the establishment.
The Iraqi Parliament votes in favour of a reciprocal travel ban on U.S. citizens if U.S. President Donald Trump's executive order barring citizens of Iraq and six other Muslim-majority countries is not reversed. The Iraqi travel ban will not be implemented while tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers and contractors are involved in the fight against ISIL.
Tens of thousands of people, mostly Shi'ites, take to the streets of Baghdad, Iraq in a protest calling for Parliament to vote on a cabinet reshuffle. The protest was called for by powerful Shi'te Muslim critic Muqtada al-Sadr. The proposed cabinet reshuffle is aimed at fighting corruption in the midst of divisions between lawmakers that have hampered the work of the government.
