BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Prime Minister-designate Nouri al-Maliki will present his Cabinet to Parliament on Saturday, signaling a possible end to months of uncertainty after legislative elections, Shiite and Sunni deputies said.

Al-Maliki "will present his government to the presidency today, and the presidency will refer it tomorrow to the parliamentary council," Deputy Parliament Speaker Khalid al-Atiya, a Shiite, told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

"On Saturday, the parliament will convene to vote on each of al-Maliki's nominees and the government's program."

Adnan al-Duleimi, head of the Sunni Arab Accordance Front said parliament "would be convened on Saturday to vote on al-Maliki's government." The makeup of the Cabinet was not released.
