Political analyst Mohammed al-Tamimi believes that the crisis of forming the new government is too big to solve by meeting the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, and the leader of the Alliance of Fateh Hadi al-Amiri.
Al-Tamimi said in a press statement, “The crisis of forming the government is not solved by meeting Al-Sadr with Al-Amiri. The issue is much greater than that. There are international wills that must be present with every process of forming a government that takes place.”
He added that “any Iraqi government formed, it must take the view of the two important axes in Iraq, namely: the Iranian and the American. Things are not in the hands of the Iraqi political forces only, but the axes have interference, in addition to the Najaf reference authority.”
Al-Tamimi indicated that “the absence of Qassem Soleimani from the Iraqi political scene will facilitate the task of forming the new Iraqi government, as he was considered the main player in this process, and his absence will give greater freedom to political forces to choose personalities, without any Iranian dictates, as happened in previous nominations. Which met with great political and popular rejection. ”
The caretaker Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi had resigned from his post in the wake of the mass popular protests that started in early October of last year, amid attempts to bring him back to the position again, but it was unsuccessful.
The political forces put up more than one name to take over, but they were all rejected by the street, which wants non-partisan or formerly tried figures in government.
