BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said on Thursday that the government of national unity will be formed in the coming stage after reaching an agreement among political blocs.

Speakiny at a defense ministry conference in Baghdad, attended by Aswat al-Iraq news agency, the premier said “the army should secure the regions, where U.S. troops will withdraw from.”

“The government of national unity will be formed through an agreement among all political blocs in the coming stage,” he said, stressing that military commanders should not await for forming the government, which could negatively affect the security condition and their duties.

The political chessboard in Iraq has been experiencing non-stop differences among the key blocs that won seats in the March 2010 legislative elections over the premiership and the government formation, namely between Maliki’s Dawlat al-Qanoon (State of Law) and former Premier Iyad Allawi’s al-Iraqiya bloc.

Several parliament sessions were postponed while the set constitutional deadline to election a new speaker and a president of a republic was breached.

The elections saw al-Iraqiya winning 91 seats, followed by Maliki’s State of Law with 89 seats, the Iraqi National Alliance (INA), which comprises Ammar al-Hakim’s Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council (SIIC), Muqtada al-Sadr’s Movement and Fadila (Virtue) Party, with 70 seats and the Kurdistan Alliance (KA) with 57 seats.

The results prompt coalitions of several parties to guarantee a required majority at the 325-seat parliament in order to form a government.
