Afghan President Hamid Karzai's list of new names to replace 17 cabinet nominees rejected last week by lawmakers was brought to parliament on Saturday.

Vice President Karim Khalili arrived with the list of Karzai's nominees to read out to the chamber.

It could take days of debate before parliament can vote on the new names, which were expected to also include an 18th candidate as foreign minister, not named in the previous list.
