Iraq lawmakers agree to delay next meeting, speaker's election to Sept 15

News Service Reuters

Iraqi lawmakers agreed on Tuesday to delay their next meeting, where they are expected to elect a speaker of parliament, to Sept. 15, state TV reported.

Parliament held its first session since May's national election on Monday but failed to elect a speaker, what should have been the first step towards forming a new government.

The temporary leader of the assembly said on Monday it would remain in session until Tuesday, but failing to reach a quorum on Tuesday, lawmakers agreed to resume the session on Sept. 15.
