BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's presidency issued a decree on Thursday for a parliament session on July 1, state television said, starting the process of forming a new government amid an insurgency that threatens the country's unity.
Vice President Khudair al-Khuzai, who is acting president and a close ally of Prime Minister Nutria al-Maliki, announced the session would be held.
Three months after elections, a chorus of Iraqi and international voices have called for the government formation process to be started.
