Following accusations of corruption, Iraqi Defense Minister Khalid al-Obeidi received a no-confidence vote from parliament. Hence Obeidi lost a no confidence vote by 142 to 102 in a secret ballot, then he became the first defense minister to receive a no-confidence vote from parliament since the overthrow of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in 2003.In recent days, the Iraqi parliament met on the corruption accusations about Defense Minister Obeidi, but he had rejected accusations of corruption against him and vote of no confidence has failed since supposed numbers could not be provided in order to remove Obeidi from Office. Indeed, according to the internal rules, it is supposed to reach 165 votes of the 328 seats of the parliament to receive a vote of confidence about a minister.After the vote, Obeidi made a written statement on his Facebook and said "I have tried to fight against corruption in every way but it appears that the voices of the masters of corruption are much higher and much stronger.”Nevertheless, removal of the Defense Minister from his office comes at an inopportune time when carrying out major operations to retake Mosul from Islamic State of Iraq and the LevantNuran YILDIRIM
