Baghdad today _ follow-up

The success of the leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr and his allies to form the largest bloc and the new government, which needs only 28 parliamentary seats, means the “loss” of the leader of a coalition of law Nuri al-Maliki for his political status in Iraq, the newspaper said. Pointed out that the Kurds have directed a “blow” to Maliki’s efforts in forming this bloc.

The newspaper said the United Arab Emirates in its report written in English and translated (Baghdad today), that “the bloc of Asron of Sadr says it expects to reach an agreement on the formation of a larger coalition in parliament,” noting that “the Iraqi Kurdish and Sunni blocs expressed their desire to form a coalition with the winner Moqtada Sadr, an indication that former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who seeks power, may lose his place in the political arena of the country. ”

She added that “the bloc of Asrun compete with the coalition of the rule of law, led by al-Maliki to conclude an agreement with the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (KO-Nu) as well as the Sunni blocs to establish the largest coalition in parliament.

“There are signs of an agreement between the Kurds and the Sunnis on the alliance with others,” Thenational quoted Raed Fahmi, a leading politician in the Asroun bloc, as saying.

“The Kurdish parties will play a pivotal role in forming the next government, as they collectively secured more than 40 seats in the May elections and have not officially announced their alliance,” the paper said.

“The Kurdish parties have set conditions for an alliance with the main blocs,” he was quoted as saying in a statement. “Our conditions are constitutional and include the existence of a government with a genuine national partnership that is balanced with the constitution.”

He added that “his party will be allied with the bloc that is consistent with our political vision.”

“These statements are seen as a blow to Maliki’s efforts as he seeks support from northern Iraqi parties,” the newspaper said, noting that “during his term of office, he was criticized for excluding Sunnis and Kurds from key positions and undermining participation in power in Iraq”.

“The parliamentary elections that took place in May led to the victory of Muqtada al-Sadr and the head of the Iranian-backed faction Hadi al-Amiri the largest number of seats out of 329 seats,” noting that “Sadr, who leads the Quartet of the main parties (going, wisdom, National), which includes 136 seats, needs to secure 28 members to form a parliamentary majority. ”

“But there is no statement on how close the agreement is between the two parties, although it is expected that officials from the two blocs will visit the Kurdistan region of Iraq next week in the hope of announcing a deal.”

“Maliki is a small player in the Iraqi parliament, with three or four seats out of his own bloc,” The New York Times quoted Michael Knights, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, as saying.

“However, he is a natural politician, so he can gather people and make deals, and that’s why you’re talking to him,” Knight said. “His role will be limited if Sadr forms a government.”

The newspaper pointed out that “the Iraqi President Fuad Masum held talks Friday with Prime Minister Haider Abadi on the latest political developments,” stressing “the need to accelerate the process of negotiating the formation of the largest bloc in the government.”

“The Federal Supreme Court did not approve the results of the May elections until August 19 after the fraud allegations resulted in a partial recount of the votes,” she said. “Abbadi heads a fragile transitional government until it is agreed to replace them. Mass protests across the south in the case of basic government services. ”

“The decision of the Federal Court paves the way for an infallible call for deputies to an opening session of the new 329-seat house.” In theory, the parliament should begin the election of a prime minister and prime minister, who in turn will form a new government Within 90 days. ”

Therefore, the Iraqi people should rest, and it is not in their interest that Iraq be a conduit for attacks on Iran or any other neighboring country, or to provide facilities to the party that wants to strike Iran or any other entity. We must be far from it because our capabilities are simple.
