Will Iraq Form A Government?

Iraq's largest Sunni Arab coalition welcomed Jawad al-Maliki as the ruling Shi'ite Alliance's new nominee for prime minister, a senior coalition official said on Friday.

The Shi'ite Alliance nominated Maliki in an effort to end four months of political paralysis over the formation of a new government.

"When we heard Maliki was nominated we held discussions and decided we welcome him and we have informed the (Shi'ite) Alliance," Iyad al-Samarraie, a leading official in the Iraqi Accordance Front, told Reuters.
