BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's parliament postponed until Tuesday a meeting aimed at agreeing on the formation of a new government because of a lack of consensus, parliamentary officials and a lawmaker said on Sunday.
Deputies had gathered in parliament for talks intended to agree a prime minister, president and speaker of parliament, three months after Iraq's parliamentary election.
The political impasse has been given added urgency by the Islamist-led insurgency which swept through Sunni provinces of northern Iraq last month and has threatened Baghdad.
