Concerns over Iraq's government

Many Iraqis worry the inability to form a political alliance could cause instability.

    It has been more than a month since Iraqiya, the secularist party, won the most cabinet seats in Iraq's national elections, defeating Shia religious parties who have dominated the political landscape over the last four years.

    But no parties have gained enough seats to solely rule over the country, which makes a national alliance a must for an effective government to exist.

    However, the religious parties and Iraqiya have failed to form an alliance due to major disagreements - including who should acquire the post of prime minister.

    And now concerns are rising among the public over whether key leaders may be left out of the government formation and the serious instability it could bring about.
