No Government in Sight as Iraqi Parliament Session ‘Postponed’

• Jason Ditz via
Tuesday’s planned session of the Iraqi Parliament has been “postponed” indefinitely, according to officials, as the ongoing coalition talks between various top officials has broken down.

They seem to be totally stalemated,” noted analyst Marina Ottoway from the Carnegie Endowment for Peace, “and they’re totally stalemated because nobody wants Maliki to be Prime Minister.”

Except for Maliki, of course. After losing most of his allies in a split with the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council (SIIC), Maliki’s new State of Law bloc, which he dominates, was still able to finish a strong second in the election, and has demanded that only he be considered for the position.
