National Alliance warns of 'constitutional vacuum' due to delaying elections
Iraqi National Alliance has warned of the constitutional vacuum in case of delaying the general election, the Alliance's MP Ahmed Salal said on Tuesday.

He added that the postponement (of elections) could lead to forming an emergency government.

The Alliance has called on the government to hold the elections as scheduled and to coordinate with the High Electoral Commission to resume its performing duties.

It also has urged the other political blocs to commit with the time of the elections as it is based on constitution and law.

Earlier, Iraqi Prime Minister said that the elections will be held as scheduled next May.
