Iraqi President: Barham Salih says, Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi is prepared to resign, once a replacement is found.

Salih gave a televised address yesterday, as the death toll from major anti-government protests surpassed 250.
The protests began in early October, due to public frustration over the country’s high unemployment rate and corruption.

Salih said, he would approve an early election, and push for electoral reforms, to encourage the participation of young people.
