Ashwaq Jaf, a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), criticized the delay of the formation of Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi's government, noting that the justice ministry, which falls under Kurdistan's entitlement, is not the only vacant ministry so far.

The two main Kurdish parties seek to guarantee finishing the formation of the Kurdistan government first, Jaf added.

On October 24, Abd al-Mahdi managed to get the parliamentary approval on 14 out of 22 ministries. However disagreement between political blocs especially on security ministries have thwarted Abd al-Mahdi's efforts to complete the cabinet in a short time.

Concerning the formation of the KRG, Jaf said that the talks between the Kurdish parties for the formation of the Kurdistan Regional Government have been of positive outcome, and related to the electoral entitlements.
