Iraqi Ministries Expand Leadership
Iraq Fact of the Day

The first group of deputy ministers -- 28 in all, including six women -- has assumed office in 14 Iraqi ministries. This talented group of professionals, educated in Iraq and abroad, includes seven with PhDs in areas as diverse as agriculture, political science, electrical engineering, and paleontology. They will be responsible for the ministries' daily functions and will help ensure a smooth transition to full sovereignty.
