Iraq’s Maliki says will not quit without court ruling

BAGHDAD:Iraq’s caretaker prime minister Nuri al-Maliki said Wednesday 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.

“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 in his televised weekly address.
