Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Adel Abdul MahdiIraqi Prime Minister-designate Adel Abdul Mahdi - The new Iraqi government decided that a good way to recruit new ministers is to let interested community members to apply via online, but what they later expect was unexpected. The politician appointed as Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, wrote on Facebook that "those who have expertise, specialization and practical experience" must submit their names on a government-specific website.

The hope is that this method will result in a team of high-caliber technocrat ministers, free of the political, ethnic and sectarian tensions that have plagued the country since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003. It will also be free from allegations of favoritism, corruption and incompetence.

The government faces the daunting task of rebuilding the country after four years of war against a group of Islamic states or ISIS that left tens of thousands of homes and businesses destroyed and more than three million people driven out of their homes.

Adel Abdul Mahdi, on his Facebook page, proudly posted the details showing various applications. "About 97% of 36,006 candidates are politically independent; 15% are women, and the candidates are from all provinces of Iraq" the prime minister wrote. He added that there was no portfolio of ministers who did not get applicants.
