Halbousi calls for extraordinary session on gov’t formation

Parliament Speaker Mohamed Al-Halbousi on Sunday called for the presidency of the parliament to hold a meeting on Monday, to discuss holding an extraordinary session, based on Article 10 of the internal system of the Council of Representatives.

The statement pointed out that the meeting comes to consider the request made to hold an extraordinary session to form the new government and determine the date of the session.

Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr returned to Iraq Saturday with a threat to stage protests outside parliament unless lawmakers back the government of prime minister-designate Mohammad Allawi in a confidence vote.
