Political Instability in Iraq

June 15, 2022

Episode Notes:

After the resignation of 73 lawmakers, Iraqi lawmakers now have an obvious path to form a government, after prolonged political impasse. The problem is that Iraq's largest bloc, the Sadrists, are now outside of government, which could lead to political violence and challenges even after a government is formed. To discuss these developments, Aaron is joined by Douglas Ollivant, a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, to discuss what is happening in Iraq politics.
