Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki "specified a 100-day period after which an assessment of the work of the government and ministries will be carried out to find out the level of their individual success or failure in performing their jobs," a statement from his office said, specifying that the 100-day period began on Sunday.

"Changes will be made based on the assessments."

The statement also specified that new measures would be taken to combat corruption, specifically by forcing ministries to advertise all job openings publicly to fight cronyism.

Maliki's call came after a cabinet meeting dedicated to massive protests on Friday that saw thousands of Iraqis take to the streets to rail against poor public services, rampant graft and high unemployment.
