Iraq ministers risk sack over Saddam-era posts

BAGHDAD: Two ministers approved by Iraq's parliament may lose their jobs before the rest of cabinet is agreed, officials said on Thursday, after a commission found they were members of Saddam Hussein's regime.
The Accountability and Justice Commission is responsible for the policy of"de-Baathification", or ensuring no Saddam-era officials or senior members of his Baath party play a role in Iraq's government.
Commission spokesman Fares Abdul Sattar said that the body had sent a letter to parliament over two nominees to the 22-minister government -- a third of which has yet to be confirmed by parliament. (AFP)
