New govt. in Iraq to be declared in August or September: minister

Former minister Jassim Mohammed Jafar on Friday said the new Iraqi government will be announced next August or September.
In a press statement, he said the formation of the coming government will be delayed due to the measures of manual counting in some ballot boxes against which challenges were filed.
He added there may be a meeting for all Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish forces to agree on the new government.
Iraqi election was held last May 12th. Turnout was low and fraud was rampant. But Sairun alliance, led by Sadr, took the lead, capturing 54 seats.
