Clinton calls to replace Iraqi prime minister

August 23, 2007 02:03

US Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday the Iraqi Parliament should replace embattled Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki with a "less divisive and more unifying figure" to reconcile political and religious factions. Clinton, the 2008 Democratic US presidential front-runner, made her comments the same day President George W. Bush reaffirmed his support for al-Maliki. In a statement released by her Senate office, Clinton echoed a call by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin for Iraq's Parliament to oust al-Maliki in favor of a leader who could restore order to Iraq's unity government.
