BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: A two week time span is not enough time to reach an agreement on the new Iraqi government, before the next session of the country’s Parliament, Sadrist Lawmaker Bahaa al-Aaraji said on Wednesday.

“There are no new results in negotiations between political blocs,” al-Aaraji told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

He described the negotiations as unserious.

“The Parliament’s next session will be repeatedly postponed unless there is a real patriotic will to solve the problem,” al-Araji said, referring to the current political crisis in Iraq.

Heads of political blocs have agreed to postpone the parliament’s session scheduled for July 13 for two weeks, as the Temporary Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Foad Maasom, had announced.

Maasom had said that leaders of political blocs will meanwhile continue their meetings until they agree on what should happen during the session, two weeks from July 13.

He noted that according to the constitution, lawmakers attending the session should select the parliament’s permanent speaker, his two deputies, and the president of Iraq.

Political blocs have so far reached no agreement on who should hold each of these positions.
