Iraq Parliament Postpones Decision On New Leaders
Iraq’s deadlocked parliament failed Sunday to overcome the deep divisions hampering the formation of a new government, making no progress on choosing new leaders who could help hold the nation together and confront the Sunni militant blitz that has overrun much of the country. MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT AND THE SUNNI FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, OSAMA AL-NUJAIFI: The legislature is under pressure to quickly choose a new speaker of parliament, president and prime minister — the first steps toward a new government. The international community has pressed lawmakers to put their differences aside, while the United Nations has warned of chaos if the political impasse drags on for too long.
