Talabani will not approve Maliki’s removal

News from The Kurdistan Tribune:

According to local news agencies, 170 signatures have been collected from members of the Iraqi parliament calling for the resignation of Iraq prime minister Nuri Maliki.

These signatures have been forwarded to Jalal Talabani, the President of Iraq and PUK leader, but he has declined to accept them. Instead he has called for each signature to be verified, one by one.

MPs from both of Kurdistan’s ruling parties, the KDP and PUK, are believed to be on the list. However, to date Gorran MPs in Baghdad have not made up their minds as to whether to withdraw support from the Maliki government.
