Iraqi PM Urges Army to Stay out of Politics

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraq's prime minister has ordered the security forces not to intervene in the current political crisis over who will be the next prime minister.   

In a statement issued on his official website, Nouri al-Maliki urged army, police and security forces to stay out of the political crisis and focus on defending the country.   

A day earlier, Haider al-Abadi, the deputy speaker of parliament from al-Maliki's Shiite Dawa party, was selected by President Fouad Massoum to be the new prime minister and was given 30 days to present a new government.   

Al-Maliki rejected the move and described it as a constitutional violation. Just before the announcement he ordered elite army units into the streets of Baghdad.
