ROTTERDAM, August 13 -- Nouri al-Maliki says only court decision can force him out as US sends more military personnel to violence-hit nation.
Iraq's Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has said that it will take a federal court ruling for him to leave power, defying the president's decision to task a rival with forming the next government.
In his weekly televised address, Maliki on Wednesday said the appointment of Haider al-Abadi to replace him as prime minister was a "violation" of the constitution and "had no value". "I confirm that the government will continue and there will not be a replacement for it without a decision from the federal court," Maliki said.
