A return of the Sunnis would be a boost to al-Maliki, who has struggled to keep together the disparate factions of his government.

Salim Abdullah, a lawmaker and spokesman for the Sunni Accordance Front, said Thursday the front has agreed in principle to return to five ministries after "positive negotiations" with al-Maliki's government.

Abdullah said he expected the new ministers to be named next week.
