Prime Minister Maliki to unveil 'half' of new cabinet

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-12-20

A spokesman for the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said at least half the members of Iraq's national unity government would be unveiled Monday amid reports of continued squabbling nine months after an inconclusive election.

REUTERS - Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki will announce some of Iraq's new cabinet ministers on Monday, a government spokesman said after other officials announced that the unveiling of a government in parliament would be delayed.

"Today in the afternoon, the prime minister will announce half the new government," spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said.

A media spokesman for the parliament speaker and other officials had earlier said Maliki's announcement of his new cabinet had been postponed until later in the week because of lingering disputes over the posts.
