PUK and PDK insist on withdrawing confidence from PM Maliki
The political bureaus of the two parties met in Pirmam today and later released a statement. The meeting was headed by the Kurdistan Region's President Massoud Barzani.
The statement said both parties are set to make an effort within constitutional and democratic solutions to withdraw confidence from al-Maliki, noting that they respect the responsibility of Iraq's President Jalal Talabani and his constitutional duties.
Both parties confirmed their obligation to the strategic agreement between them and to work towards unity and compatibility with parties that are participating in the region's political process.
Two month ago, the Kurdistan Blocs Coalition, Iraqiya List and the Sadrist Movement started collecting signatures to withdraw confidence from al-Maliki. But the withdrawal process when the signatures were rejected by Talabani for not fulfilling the required quorum.
