Prime Minister-designate Nouri al-Maliki will present his Cabinet to parliament on Saturday, signaling a possible end to months of uncertainty after legislative elections, Shi'ite and Sunni deputies said. Al-Maliki "will present his government to the presidency today, and the presidency will refer it tomorrow to the parliamentary council," Deputy Speaker Khalid al-Attiyah, a Shi'ite, told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "On Saturday, the parliament will convene to vote on each of al-Maliki's nominees and the government's program," he said. Sunni Arab lawmaker Adnan al-Dulaimi of the Iraqi Accordance Front confirmed the statement. The makeup of the Cabinet was not released.
