Summary

Ex-minister named as Iraq prime minister-designate, but anti-government demonstrators say he is part of ruling elite.Baghdad, Iraq – Anti-government protesters in Iraq were quick to dismiss President Barham Salih’s appointment of Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi as prime minister-designate, as rallies took place in the capital and cities in the country's southern provinces.The president’s announcement came after he issued an ultimatum to Iraq's fractious parliament, warning that if they did not appoint a new premier by Saturday he would do so himself.But anti-government protesters did not welcome the announcement, with hundreds in the capital's Tahrir Square chanting "Mohammed Allawi, rejected!", videos posted on social media showed.In the southern city of Nasiriyah, protesters issued a statement saying they categorically rejected Allawi's selection."He is the compromised candidate that belongs to the sectarian power sharing political system (muhasasa) we are protesting against, and does not represent the aspirations of the protest sites," the statement said.
