Allawi presents his cabinet in two weeks, and its names will only be announced in Parliament. Constitutionally speaking, Allawi’s 30 days to form a government began on February 2.  Not that in Iraq constitutional deadlines or red-lines mean anything. But, two weeks from today will be February 24 or only a week left under the constitution to form a government. Hardly a meteoric pace.  Assuming it is done timely which would be a change for Iraq.
