Negotiators met late into the night Monday but chances appeared remote that they would agree on a new Iraqi government or a speaker for the National Assembly in time for today's second assembly meeting. Long-standing plans to introduce outgoing interim President Ghazi Ajil Yawer as speaker of the new National Assembly appeared to hit a snag. Yawer, a prominent Sunni Arab tribal leader, told several Arab satellite TV channels that he intended to refuse the position.

LONDON -- A broad gathering of Iraqi groups opposed to Saddam Hussein is on track to take place this week after months of fits and starts, but the assembly will stop short of trying to form a government in exile, an opposition figure with royal lineage told journalists Monday. Sharif Ali bin Hussein, a constitutional monarchist who aspires one day to reclaim the Iraqi throne once held by his cousin, said 300 to 350 delegates will gather to map out a general plan for Iraq's future governance.

In talks with the six leading Iraqi opposition groups, the Bush administration Friday stepped up its efforts to outline a new political future for Iraq after a hoped-for ouster of President Saddam Hussein and pledged to "enhance" its work with the opposition. The two-hour meeting was also designed to signal new unity--at least in public--both among the disparate array of opposition forces and within the Bush administration, U.S. officials said.

A quick look around the Middle East, says Sharif Ali bin Hussein, is all it takes to see what Iraq needs in these troubled times: a king. Republics such as Egypt and Libya, and Islamic regimes such as Iran, are dealing with varying degrees of economic hardship, political instability and repression after overthrowing their monarchs. Iraq is in the throes of its third war in 25 years. Meanwhile, kingdoms such as Jordan, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates are faring better.

Former Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi, who is vying to once again lead his nation, on Sunday accused unnamed figures in the current government of being involved in a plot to kill him. Allawi, whose Iraqiya bloc won the largest share of parliamentary seats in March elections that have still not produced a new government, did not name the alleged culprits but provided an April 29 letter from the U.S. military to back up his contention that his...

BAGHDAD -- To the colorful cast of characters aspiring to lead postwar Iraq -- mullahs, tribal chieftains, wealthy exiles and former generals -- add a would-be king. On his first day back in his homeland Tuesday after 45 years in exile, Sharif Ali bin Hussein, the cousin of Iraq's last monarch, held court in a faded taupe mansion in northern Baghdad and pledged to help rebuild the country, preferably as a constitutional monarchy.

President Bush declared Iraq "an enemy until proven otherwise" Saturday but said he has "no timetable" for taking the war on terrorism to Baghdad to bring about a regime change in the oil-rich nation. Bush nevertheless ardently underscored his oft-declared desire to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and said he intends to keep making the case to U.S. allies.

From his suite at the Ritz-Carlton overlooking Georgetown, Sharif Ali bin Hussein spoke passionately last week about bringing the royal family back to Iraq--and putting himself on the throne. "Our belief after 40 years of failed republics is that the people want a return of the monarchy. This is what we're being told by Iraqis themselves," said the dapper chief of Iraq's Constitutional Monarchy Movement, who fled Baghdad at age 2 after his cousin King Faisal II was assassinated in 1958.
