Baghdad - Iraq's Governing Council has decided to establish a total of 25 ministries, six more than under the previous regime of Saddam Hussen, a spokesperson for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) said on Wednesday.

"The council proposed the creation of 25 ministries. We started to discuss it on Tuesday and we will continue today in a detailed manner," KDP's Hoshyar Zebari said.

"Nominations of ministers will take time, because we have to choose qualified persons for each post," he added...

To date, the council has yet to propose any names for new ministers.

"But the general trend is to choose experts or technocrats because the situation needs actions and not words," said Yawar.
