Iraq Government is the government of Iraq. It was established in 2003 following the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime, and it has been led by Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi since October 2018. The government is based on a parliamentary system which includes three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial.

The Executive Branch consists of several ministries that are responsible for running day-to-day operations such as health care, education, security forces, finance etc., as well as various other agencies under their authority. The prime minister appoints cabinet members to lead each ministry with approval from Parliament. He or she also presides over meetings of all ministers while making sure they abide by laws and regulations set forth by parliamentarians and international organizations like the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

The Legislative Branch is composed mainly out of two parts; namely the Council of Representatives (COR) – commonly known as “Parliament” –which acts according to Article 61 in Iraqi Constitution approved in 2005—and provincial councils elected from local assemblies within 18 governorates across country boundaries every four years starting 2007 who have power to form laws related only to those specific provinces where elections were held at respective times .
