The coordinator of the central sit-in tents in Basra Governorate, Abu Ali Al-Maliki, on Saturday (December 14, 2019) threatened what he described as “attempts” to pass Basra Governor Asaad Al-Eidani and former Minister of Labor, Mohammed Shiaa Al-Sudani, to the position of prime minister.

Al-Maliki told (Baghdad today) that “the Basra sit-in decided to transfer the sit-in tents in front of oil export sites in the event of the passage of Al-Sudani or Al-Aidani.”

He warned, “What he described as a scenario for the Islamic Dawa Party to be reinstated after the masses rejected any party candidate.”

He revealed, “Meetings between the demonstrators in Basra and the sit-ins in the districts and districts came out with one result, which is the escalation of protests and the suspension of oil exports and commercial traffic in all ports in the event of circumventing the will of the people.”

Earlier in the day, dozens of demonstrators from Basra Governorate chanted slogans rejecting the nomination of the former Minister of Labor, Muhammad Shi’a Al-Sudani, and the Governor of Basra, Asaad Al-Eidani, for the post of prime minister, as a substitute for the resigning Adel Abdul Mahdi.

According to a videotape, (Baghdad Today) obtained a copy of it. Dozens of demonstrators chanted, “No Idani, no Sudanese, we have called and called … and the (who rides) our wave wants to reflect (we will) have the same.”

During the past two days, the media and social media circulated the name of the former Labor Minister, Muhammad Shi’a Al-Sudani, as a candidate proposed by the political blocs of the Prime Minister as a substitute for the resigning Adel Abdul Mahdi.

On Friday (December 13, 2019), Muhammad Shia’a Al-Sudani announced his resignation from the Islamic Dawa Party, while stressing: “I am not a candidate for any party, Iraq is my affiliation first.”


Shafak News / Angry protesters tried this evening, Saturday, to set fire to the house of Member of Parliament, Mohamed Shiaa Al-Sudani, in Maysan Governorate, southern Iraq.

Security sources said to Shafak News, that protesters came to the Sudanese house in the Al-Hussein neighborhood of Al-Amara city and tried to burn it, but they withdrew for unknown reasons.

The sources added that the security forces have reinforced their presence around the house to prevent any attempt to burn it.

The sources added that the house is empty and no one lives because the Sudanese lives with his family in the capital, Baghdad.

And there were demonstrations in several Iraqi provinces against what was reported by an agreement between political forces on the nomination of the leader of the Dawa Party, Mohamed Shi’a Al-Sudani, to succeed the resigned Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi.

Protesters confirmed their refusal to nominate the Sudanese, who held several ministerial positions in previous governments, to head the next government.

Activists on social media circulated marches in the Tahrir Square in central Baghdad, Basra, Babil, Diwaniya and other areas against the candidacy of the Sudanese.

Al-Sudani announced in his tweet on Friday his resignation from the Dawa Party and from the “State of Law coalition” led by former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, and confirmed that he is not “a candidate by any party.”

(Baghdad: Al Furat News) The head of the Babylonian Parliamentary Bloc, Aswan Salem Al-Keldani, revealed the date for voting on the new election law.

“There are no differences between the political blocs over the new draft election law, but there are technical differences over the mechanism of implementing the electoral law,” Al-Chaldani said {for Furat News}.

He pointed out that “there is a problem in setting a date for the elections,” noting that “the vote on the election law will be in the next session of the parliament, which will be held next Monday.”


independent candidates for prime minister .. And 150 parliamentary signatures rejecting party candidates

Baghdad / Obelisk: The MP from the Bayraq al-Khair bloc, Muhammad al-Khalidi, on Saturday, December 14, 2019, revealed that 180 deputies support the nomination of an independent figure to head the new government, confirming sending, officially, 150 parliamentary signatures, to confirm this.

Al-Khalidi confirmed that they will submit to the President of the Republic the CVs of three new names.

Al-Khalidi said, “The number of deputies supporting the nomination of a prime minister acceptable to the demonstrators has reached 180, from the blocs of Bairaq al-Khair, the Union of Forces, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and the coalition of victory and wisdom.”

He added, “The number of signatories officially present on the nomination document has reached 150 signatures,” noting that “the document was handed over to Barham Salih for approval.”

He continued, “Muhammad Shia’a Al-Sudani was formally rejected by the demonstrators, which means that he was formally rejected by the 150 deputies,” noting that “the President of the Republic informed the deputies that he supports the presentation of a figure who is acceptable to the demonstrators and is independent.”

The political blocs dispute the way to choose a new candidate to head the government, between those who call for deciding the choice by the demonstrators, while calling for political blocs to entrust the matter to the House of Representatives, given that the protest yards do not represent all Iraqis.

During the past few days, the center, the political, and the media circulated many personalities to assume the position of prime minister, without decisiveness, while the parties launched signals to express rejection or acceptance of this or that name.

And the demonstrations seem to confuse the parties and blocs, and lose confidence in their options and positions, to the extent that the constitutional and legal mechanisms for choosing the Prime Minister are marginalized, where the largest bloc in the House of Representatives decides the name and presents it to the President of the Republic, who in turn submits it to Parliament to give him confidence.

The matter that readily observes that confusion and confusion, the master of the situation, and the blocks that seemed compelled to accept the resignation of Adel Abdul-Mahdi, finds herself confused about it, as it seeks to choose an alternative to it, where differences escalate around the candidates, and the multiple names are presented either to feel the pulse or deliberately “Burn.”

The lack of enthusiasm for political blocs and parties, to profess the desire for the position of prime minister, indicates political distrust, and its awareness that the balance of power tends a lot, beyond what it wishes, to find itself forced to not express its will and aspirations, in front of demonstrations that “spoil” the class The entire political.

The Iraqi Council of Representatives approved the request to resign the Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi and his government in the first of this month, to turn into a caretaker government.

Baghdad / Obelisk: Legal expert Tareq Harb said, on Saturday, December 14, 2019, that the new Prime Minister will be announced within the next 72 hours, indicating that the President of the Republic will present this candidate without any symptoms from a political bloc or deputy.

Harb said, in a post on his Facebook page, that within a period of no more than three days, the candidate for the new prime minister will be announced, as he will refer the president of the republic to parliament in order to nominate him in implementation of the provisions of the constitution that mandated the largest bloc to nominate the prime minister.

He added, it does not matter the nomination from one of the blocs only, as it is considered the largest bloc as long as no other bloc has declared that it is the largest bloc that opposes this nomination, since the constitution did not specify the number of deputies of the largest parliamentary bloc as long as no more bloc opposes that it rejects the nomination as the largest bloc This is what happened a year ago, as Adel Abdul Mahdi was nominated for prime minister, and no deputy objected to this nomination, and no bloc said that it objected to the nomination or was it the largest bloc.

The legal expert explained that the nomination of a candidate from the President of the Republic and the adoption of a parliamentary bloc to adopt this proposal and that he is a candidate for prime minister and not to object to another parliamentary bloc, and recalls that the number of its representatives is more.

He pointed out that the President of the Republic has in his pocket this candidate who will be nominated by one of the blocs and who will not be opposed by any deputy or parliamentary bloc and take over the formation of the new government without parliamentary opposition, as was the case with Adel Abdul Mahdi, who was nominated by blocs that are not considered the largest, since the number of members is not more than half the members Parliament, but it was the largest reality, but its mass did not say that it was greater than it, and no deputy opposed it.

Harb warned that he will settle the issue of the candidate for prime minister by the president of the republic, who will present it to one of the parliamentary blocs that will nominate him for prime minister, and not present any parliamentary bloc or deputy against him, and the coming hours will be decided. Political nights will give birth to every stranger.

 12/14 2019 06:47:38

Shafak News / A senior source in the Presidency of the Republic of Iraq denied on Saturday that President Barham Saleh had received the name of a candidate in order to present him to the House of Representatives to fill the position of Prime Minister instead of resigning Adel Abdul Mahdi.

And media outlets from Sulaimaniyah, Saleh’s birthplace, quoted the source as saying that “in the few days it was talked about the president taking over the name of a candidate for the position of prime minister”, adding that “this matter has not been resolved yet and the issue is not related to the lack of a personality to be nominated for this.” The position, but rather the problem, is that protesters will not accept that the candidate be among the Iraqi political parties. “

The source added, “We deny completely and in detail the news that President Saleh received the name of a candidate for the position of Prime Minister, and we believe that this issue is not so easy.”

Local Iraqi and other Arab media circulated leaks about the nomination of Muhammad Shi’a Al-Sudani, a former member of the Islamic Call Party, who is close to the leader of the rule of law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, for the position of the next Iraqi prime minister.
