The story: Ministers belonging to the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) are again participating in Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) cabinet meetings, having ended a six-month boycott. However, a physical fight between PUK MPs and lawmakers from the rival Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) on the floor of the regional parliament undermines fleeting hopes for unity. It also casts doubt on whether Iraqi Kurdistan will be able to hold elections as scheduled this autumn after missing them last year.
The coverage: The PUK’s return to the Kurdistan regional cabinet on May 14 came after a surprise meeting on May 8 between KRG Prime Minister Masrour Barzani of the KDP and KRG Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani of the PUK.
