World Bulletin / News Desk

Three parties in the autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of northern Iraq have agreed to form a new government.

The Kurdistan Democrat Party (PDK), Goran Movement and Kurdistan Homeland Lovers Union (YNK) have arrived at an agreement after talks.

In the new government, there will be two deputy prime minister's, with one of them being from the Goran Movement. The positions of finance minister and parliament speaker will also go to the Goran Movement. However, the position of interior minister will not go to the Goran Movement after the YNK opposed it.

The prime minister, deputy prime ministers, finance minister and natural resources minister will also form a Natural Resources and Minerals Board in order to settle differences which may arise.

However, the Goran Movement still insists on having two members in the board instead of the designated one.
