BAGHDAD: The head of White Iraqiya bloc, Qutaiba al-Jubouri, suggested today that the post of Higher Strategic Policies Council go to the Turkmen because they did not get a real post in the present government.
Jubouri made a statement today, a copy of which was received by Aswat al-Iraq, stating that "granting this post to the Turkmen is important because they are the third ethnic entity in the country.
Their popular participation and history should enable them a real representation."
"Granting them this post will substitute their deprivation of the vice-presidency post and a matter of equality and national partnership principles," he added.
