The leader of the National Wisdom Movement, Ammar al-Hakim, asserted on Monday that the new president must have good relations with Erbil and Baghdad.
Al-Hakim received in his office in Baghdad a delegation of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) headed by Nechirvan Barzan in which they discussed the government formation and Iraq's constitutional timeline.
He stressed that the new elected president must take into his consideration that he represents all Iraqi people not a specific party, asserting the importance of achieving integration between the executive and legislative authorities.
Parliament's session on Monday that aimed to vote on the new president was postponed until Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Barham Salih, the PUK's candidate to the president post, walked out of the Parliament with his accompanying delegation before the start of the session.
The race for president is largely seen to be between the PUK's Salih and KDP's candidate, Fuad Hussein.
