{Baghdad: Al Furat News} The former MP, Faisal al-Issawi, counted the survival of Adel Abdul Mahdi as prime minister “unrealistic”, while stressing the existence of a real desire in parliament to get out of the crisis.

Al-Issawi told Al-Hadath program broadcast on Al-Furat satellite channel tonight, “Today there is no doubt that the demonstrations that lasted for three months were pressing for reform operations, but what happened today is unfortunate images of burning schools and colleges outside the general framework of reforms advocated by the Iraqi people.”

He added that “the map of the demonstrations is to change the commission and the election law and then form a government capable of creating an atmosphere for early elections.”

Al-Issawi pointed out that “the accumulated political deviation in 3 consecutive sessions of the House of Representatives produced the problem of the largest bloc, and the wrong interpretation leads us to closed ways and the blocs want the Prime Minister to get away from them without assuming responsibility.”  

“There is a real desire among a large percentage of parliamentarians to get out of the crisis, but we need objective conditions to achieve early elections,” he said.

Al-Issawi commented about the meeting of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, with the head of the Construction Alliance, Hadi al-Amiri, in Qom, by saying, “The information of Mr. Sadr and al-Amiri’s meeting is confidential, and his decisions have not yet come out to their closest relatives.” A second term for Abdul Mahdi.

He continued, “But the two sides may have agreed to nominate a new personality to put him on the political blocs,” noting that “the other leaders are the largest bloc and bear the responsibility for choosing the prime minister.”

Al-Issawi said, “The United States is still the largest ally and supporter of Iraq and the China agreement, as an opportunity to advance the Iraqi economy and infrastructure.

He continued, “Therefore, to keep Abdul Mahdi as realistic as possible until the elections are held, but politically it cannot be sustained, because he cannot face the great challenges that the country is going through, and he has no background or tools to confront the crisis.”

And on the other candidate’s candidate, Ali Al-Shukri, Al-Issawi said, “He is a distinguished and patriotic figure who has succeeded in the experiment and has acceptability and fortunes with the political parties. We hope that the political blocs find a consensus to name him and he is able to bear responsibility.”

Al-Issawi concluded by saying, “Iraqi foreign policy retreated in the time of Abdul-Mahdi very clearly and failed to find any sympathy or clear positions by the countries after the bombing of sites in Iraq and the martyrdom of a senior official as deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Authority Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis.”
