IRBIL, Iraq – Iraq's prime minister said Saturday he's still seeking Cabinet nominations from the country's top politicians, signaling he likely will not form a new government much earlier than the Dec. 25 deadline.

Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite Muslim, had pledged to announce his new government by Dec. 15 and end the political deadlock that began after parliamentary elections in March failed to produce a clear winner. The delay announced Saturday reflects al-Maliki's struggle to cobble together an inclusive government.

Maliki Unlikely to Form Gov’t Until 2011

http://www.iran-daily.com/

Political Desk

Iraq's prime minister is still seeking cabinet nominations from the country's top politicians, signaling he likely will not form a new government much earlier than the Dec. 25 deadline, as promised.

Nouri Al-Maliki had pledged to announce his new government by Dec. 15 and end the political deadlock that began with inconclusive parliamentary elections nine months ago, AP reported.

He appealed for nominations Saturday at a meeting of the Kurdish Democratic Party and said he would still meet the constitutional deadline of Dec. 25 for announcing the new leadership.

The meeting was also attended by Sunni and Shiite Arab politicians with whom Maliki has had to create uneasy alliances after his political party fell short of winning the most seats in parliament in the March elections.

Kurdish Self-Determination

Iraqi Kurdish leader Massud Barzani Saturday called for the right to self-determination of the Kurdish region of northern Iraq, which could lead to a breakup of the country.

Speaking at a congress of his Kurdistan Democratic Party, Barzani said "the issue of self-determination," which was considered "a right," would be presented to those attending the conference "to be studied and discussed."

Barzani's comments were made to an audience that included Maliki, parliament speaker Osama Al-Nujaifi and Iyad Allawi, whose Iraqiya bloc won the most seats in March elections, AFP reported.

Barzani's KDP is a key member of Maliki's governing coalition.

Iraq's Kurdish north, made up of three provinces, has its own parliament and exerts control over all areas of policy except for national defense and foreign affairs.

Allawi Threat

Allawi threatened to quit a power-sharing government in an interview with Britain's Times newspaper on Thursday.

"Power-sharing is not happening," Allawi said. "It is not set to work in a meaningful way... If it does not change, I will not participate."

Despite being lauded by international leaders including US President Barack Obama, Iraq's power-sharing pact has looked fragile ever since it was agreed last month after an eight-month impasse.

Despite his Iraqiya block narrowly winning elections in March, Allawi has seen religious parties coalesce to form the biggest grouping in the new parliament led by Maliki.

Allawi, a Shiite, claimed that Iraq's political system meant a non-sectarian politician could never succeed.

He said Iraqis were likely to quickly become disillusioned with any government that is formed.

"There is a lot of disillusionment among Iraqis, whether they voted for us or not," Allawi said. "They associated democracy with the fact that whoever got the highest numbers should spearhead the formation of the government."

The Times said Allawi had also confirmed that many imprisoned members of the Al-Mahdi Army, followers of Shiite cleric Moqtada Al-Sadr, had been released as part of a deal struck between Maliki and Sadr two months ago. Asked how Iraq's political landscape would look in a year's time, Allawi told the paper: "Really, I don't know."

It seems that AFTER he made that announcement, things changed.

http://don't promote other sites.wordpress.com/2010/12/11/maliki-receives-ministry-candidates-from-blocs-decision-next-week/#more-13291.

Is there any way to know exactly what day & time articles are actually printed, as opposed to older news getting recycled in forums? Luckily I read a lot, so recognize some when I've seen them before. But today's news is confusing... no idea which came first, the chicken or the egg. Will it be the 15th or the 25th? Either one is plausible.

Actually the article says:

"Iraq's prime minister said Saturday he's still seeking Cabinet nominations from the country's top politicians, signaling he likely will not form a new government much earlier than the Dec. 25 deadline."

Your topic and title are mis-leading. Malaki never announced a delay. That is purely the conjecture of the AP writer, YAHYA BARZANJI, and yourself. Malaki has only said he is still seeking cabinet nominations. Read things objectively next time, bub. GO RV.

key word- WOULD (hoping so anyhow :)

Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki also addressed the congress, indicating that a new Iraqi government would be formed by the constitutional deadline of Dec. 25th.

Prime Minister Maliki's comments indicated that he may be having some difficulty in putting together his cabinet, despite assurances that he would meet the Dec. 25th deadline.
