If confidence is withdrawn. This talk, which has escalated over the past few days, in the cracks of the “conquest” and the disputes within the “Popular Mobilization” , and the expansion of the leader of the “wisdom” Ammar al-Hakim moves to include other deputies in parliament for his opposition front , coupled with a question about the possible alternative to Abdul Mahdi . It also leads to the recall of the crisis of the largest bloc, which lasted for months, and the US-Iranian competition in Baghdad to win each side a government close to him, through US envoy Brett McGurk, and his Iranian counterpart in Iraq, Qasem Soleimani, before ending on the initiative of the religious authority in Najaf, which put forward the settlement government To defuse a major crisis in the country.

Officials in Baghdad and members of parliament talked about what they called a hot month in September, preparing various political blocs to open the file of Abdul-Mahdi’s government program and achieved, especially in terms of services and poverty rates and rising unemployment in the country.

The most significant delay in raising the issue of withdrawing confidence from Abdul Mahdi is the lack of alternative

In a context, a senior deputy in the Iraqi parliament, who asked not to be named, told the “new Arab”, the most prominent delay delaying the issue of the withdrawal of confidence from Abdul Mahdi, “lack of alternative, and perhaps the latter is aware of this and reassured that he will complete his four years.” He pointed out that “may be pushed by the current pressure, internal and external, until he initiates the resignation.” The same MP considered that “the survival of Abdul-Mahdi chaos, and his resignation without alternative chaos is greater, despite the existence of major blunders on his work, not only at the level of the government program, but also because of weakness in many files related to the crowd, and financial concessions to the Kurdistan region and the oil file He stuck with Erbil, as well as the file of positions, bringing the former Supreme Council leaders closer together and giving them important positions in his office and the government as a whole. ” “The external factor, particularly Iran and the United States, is an obstacle to the parliament being able to relieve Abdul Mahdi from his mission,” he said. “The step requires a green light from Iran and the United States as well, and for Americans now, Abdul Mahdi is no longer their favorite.”

The government program implementation committee in the Iraqi parliament announced earlier last month that the government has only completed 30 per cent of its program, while the latter confirms that it has so far completed more than 70 per cent of its program, which was granted the confidence of the Iraqi Council of Representatives.,15700021,15700043,15700186,15700191,15700253,15700256,15700259&usg=ALkJrhiU9JiQbm8A6WFsuVhejYbW4KghnQ
