On Thursday, April 9, President Barham Salih tapped the head of Iraq's National Intelligence Service (NIS), Mustafa al-Kadhimi, as prime minister-designate. The announcement came hours after the previously designated prime minister, Adnan al-Zurfi, resigned due to a lack of support. Al-Kadhimi will have 30 days to form a government, which will then require parliamentary approval. According to local media sources, al-Kadhimi has already garnered the support of several influential political blocs, such as the Fatah Alliance, the State of Law Coalition, and the National Wisdom Movement.

Associated demonstrations are possible despite ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19)-related restrictions on movement. 


Individuals in Iraq are advised to closely monitor the situation, avoid all protests and large public gatherings due to potential violence, prepare for disruptions to transportation and business in areas affected by anti-government demonstrations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Iraq remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas with proper security protocols in place, other areas should be considered strictly off-limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to all travel.
