ERBIL — Iraqi Vice-president Nouri al-Maliki proposed to fill with proxies the vacant senior posts allocated to Kurds in Baghdad, said a Kurdish lawmaker to the Iraqi House of Representatives.

Speaking on Wednesday, Shirin Abdul-Rahman said Maliki and his Shi’ite State of Law Coalition put pressure on the Iraqi government to assign the proxies in order to deprive Kurds from their share.

Abdul-Rahman added that Baghdad bent to Maliki’s wish in this regard without notifying Kurds.

She declared that there are tens of other senior posts from the Kurdish share which are suspended due to the majority in the Iraqi House of Representatives.
