(Reuters)- Nuri al-Maliki finally bowed to pressure within Iraq and beyond on Thursday and stepped down as prime minister, paving the way for a new coalition that world and regional powers hope can quash a Sunni Islamist insurgency that threatens Baghdad.
Two key U.S. lawmakers, Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, hailed Maliki's decision to step down as "necessary and positive."
"It is our hope that Iraq's new national leaders will provide the inclusive governance and effective leadership against ISIS that we have long sought," they said in a joint statement.
