An Iraqi governor and leading Sunni politician said Sunday that the nation's "last chance for democracy" could be derailed if the Shi'ite prime minister keeps his job despite losing to a Sunni-backed coalition in elections seven months ago.
Speaking from the northern Kurdish city of Irbil where he took refuge, he said smaller armed groups had joined the Islamic State during the fight for control of the city.
Ninevah Gov. Atheel al-Nujaifi told reporters that "Mosul is capable of getting back on its feet and getting rid of all the outsiders," and said authorities planned to mobilize residents into militias that would play a role in retaking the city.
