Iraqi parliament postpones session til Aug. 12

(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Iraqi parliament decided Monday to postpone its session scheduled for tomorrow until August 12 because of political parties' failure to name house speaker, President and Prime Minister.

Sources at the parliament, requesting anonymity, told KUNA the house eldest MP Mahdi Al-Hafedh, who was presiding over today's meeting, informed the lawmakers about the postponement decision.

The parliament failed in its first session to elect its speaker and a president of the republic.

Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki, whose State of Law coalition won the April 30 general elections, has been urged by international parties to form an inclusive government in order to address security uncertainties in Iraq.
