The United Nations envoy for Iraq Wednesday urged political leaders in the "crucial" post-election period to swiftly form an inclusive new government that works across sectarian and ethnic divides. Jan Kubis told the Security Council it's essential that Iraq's new government "works as one" to pursue much needed political, economic and social reforms.The May 12 election was the fourth since the 2003 American-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein and the first since Iraq declared victory in December over Daesh after driving the extremists from all territory they seized in the summer of 2014 .Negotiations to piece together a coalition with a majority in the house that can form the next government began soon after the elections.
