Iraqi demonstrators started on Thursday morning to close several roads and traffic intersections and burn tires in Basra province, south to denounce the mechanism of choosing a candidate to form the next government, local witnesses said. The

German news agency, DPA quoted the witnesses as saying that angry demonstrators have started since the early morning hours to cut off the commercial intersection and burnt tires and prevented the passage of vehicles and citizens.

According to the sources, the intersection is critical in the province. It leads to a group of important roads such as the demonstrations square in the navy yard, the military hospital, Basra Court of First

Instance and Basra General Traffic Directorate. The witnesses said the protesters chanted slogans demanding the fulfilment of their demands including expediting the nomination of an independent candidate to form the next government.

The Iraqi security forces were deployed in the province’s streets, calling on the protesters to retreat to the central demonstrations square, reopen closed roads, and restore the movement of vehicles.
