 The source, who asked to remain anonymous, confirmed, "there is an agreement to vote on the final form of the electoral law by the end of today's session".

 The source added, "the Parliamentary Legal Committee is currently holding a meeting with the MPs of Kirkuk governorate to discuss the nature and the division of electoral districts in the governorate".
