Iraqi parliamentary session delayed for another two weeks
Iraqi parliamentary sources conveyed Monday that leaders of the various political blocs decided to postpone the parliamentary session, which was to open on Tuesday for another two weeks. The reason for the delay is because of the continuing tension between the political blocs on the formation of the new government.
The sources said that "a meeting by the leaders did not produce any results, so they decided to postpone the session for two weeks."
The new Iraqi parliament held its first session since the March 7 election on 14th of June. It was chaired by Fouad Ma'sum, the oldest MP.
