Iraq’s major political forces have postponed a confidence vote in the new government planned for Saturday, amid persistent haggling over the allocation of cabinet posts, lawmakers said.


Prime minister-designate Mohammed Shia al Sudani was tapped to form a new government on October 13, raising hopes of an end to a year of deadlock since Iraq’s last election, but the nominee has been locked in talks with potential partners over who gets which ministry.


“The session has been postponed,” said Kurdistan Democratic Party lawmaker Sherwan Dubardany.
