Iraqi Government possibly today or tomorrow

The Iraqi government is getting close to final formation, see this article from the Turkish Press:

Nuri al-Maliki, assigned to establish the new National Unity government, said the new Iraqi government will be formed “today or tomorrow.”

Appointed as prime minister in April, al-Maliki announced the government is almost ready; cabinet members include Sunni, Shiite, and Kurdish group representatives.

The candidate ministers of particular offices, such as oil, defense, interior, foreign, and finance have been determined and the process will expectedly be completed by Thursday.

In the same edition, Iran is presenting Turkey with “evidence” that the US is meeting with with the PKK, Kurdish Communist separatists/terrorists that neither goverment is fond of.
