BAGHDAD, Sept 21 (KUNA) -- Iraqi Vice-President Tareq Al-Hashemi Friday threatend to withdraw the Accord Front from the Presidency and parliament if the government continued defying demands of the Front.
Hashemi told a news conference, held in Al-Amiriya neighborhood, the Accord Front "will not return to the government" unless its demands were met. He assured that the government of Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki has not responded to its demands.
"We will not keep our participation in the government as it was before. We will not allow to be marginalized once more and will not accept the ministries that were given to us before," said Hashemi.
Hashemi, the secretary general of the Iraqi Islamic Party, warned against withdrawal from the entire political process if the negotiations with the government failed.
"Now we have withdrawn from the Iraqi government, but we will quit the presidency and the parliament in case our talks with the government reached a dead end," added the Vice President, who accused the government of illegal practices.
The Accord Front has 44 seats in the parliament. Five of its ministers had resigned. (end) mhg.bs KUNA 212158 Sep 07NNNN
