Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish political forces turn against Allawi – One Hour Passed

BAGHDAD – Political sources in Baghdad said that Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi may apologize for the task of forming the government at any moment, after Speaker of Parliament Muhammad al-Halbousi described the Prime Minister-designate’s desire to form a government independent of the parties unrealistically.

And when he was just around the corner from completing his ministerial cabinet with political blessing, which was wide until a few days ago, it appears that the anti-Allawi political team is on the way to achieving victory, as the political support on which he depended was lost, in mysterious circumstances.

Those close to Allawi say that the prime minister-designate rejected requests from Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish political forces to include their representatives in the government, and turned against him. Instead of saying these real powers, she kept talking in front of the street that assigning Allawi has not fulfilled the demands of the demonstrators stationed in the streets for five months, or that the decision to commission was not constitutional, which necessitated the entry of the President of the Republic, Barham Saleh, to the media sparring circle to confirm that Allawi’s choice After the explicit approval of the majority of the Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish powers.

And unless Allawi turns away from his desire to form a government independent of the parties, gaining the trust of parliament will be difficult.

Allawi hinted on Tuesday that he understands the nature of the movement, which aims to thwart his efforts to form an independent government.

The Prime Minister-designate said, “I have heard that there is a plan to thwart the government’s passage due to the inability to continue the thefts because the ministries will be managed by independent and impartial ministers,” adding that the details of the plan are “paying exorbitant sums to the deputies, and making the vote secret”, During the swing session, which is now swinging.

Allawi expressed his hope that “this information is incorrect.”

The date of the parliament session was postponed from last Monday to tomorrow, Thursday, while Halbousi stipulated that the taxpayer send the names of members of his cabinet to study in the parliament three days before the voting session, otherwise the Thursday session will not take place.

Al-Halbousi pointed out the possibility of assigning a new candidate, in the event that the thirty days for forming the government expire without the cabinet being completed, an option that was very unlikely some days ago.

Al-Halbousi blamed the President of the Republic for the responsibility of choosing Allawi to form the government, stressing that Barham Salih committed a constitutional violation by refusing to assign individuals whose names were put before Allawi.

But Saleh responded quickly by saying that the speaker of Parliament personally attended Allawi’s commissioning ceremony, and he explicitly approved the decision.

Observers say that Allawi showed unexpected solidity during the stage of selecting members of his cabinet, and did not listen to the demands of the political blocs that he is interested in maintaining their gains and influence in state institutions.

Although Allawi did not choose in his cabinet, according to what leaked the names of its members, the names of personalities far from the known political circles in Iraq after the year 2003, she was not actually connected with any of the influential parties in the political life today, and these options caused My party’s anger is great.

Even the outspoken support Allawi was receiving from Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr appeared to be fading.

On Monday evening, Sadr said he did not choose Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, but he was silent about his mandate, hoping to cross the crisis of demonstrations.

Al-Sadr’s comments came hours after the Iranian-backed Al-Fateh coalition withdrew its support for Allawi, accusing the prime minister in charge of courtesy of political parties at the expense of another, and the weakness of his government program.

Sources say that Allawi, if he had not really decided to appease the protesters during the next two days, he would not wait until Parliament overthrew him publicly, and would take a step that would bring him closer to the street protesting the corruption of the political class and the Iranian-controlled parties controlling the country’s capabilities.

Observers say that Allawi’s hints may be a precursor to a plan he prepared in advance that includes turning the table on the political parties and exposing the public to its demands that are far from his interests, which puts the Prime Minister-designate on the side of the protesters who brought down the government of Abdul-Mahdi, and threatened all established political centers, including those that derive Absolute support from Iran.

An Iraqi political observer attributed the failure of the parties to give confidence to the Allawi government, despite the popular rejection of his choice, for reasons related to the fear of these parties that this would be the beginning of concessions that would deprive them of many of their privileges.

The observer said in a statement to “Al-Arab”, “What the parties do not forgive for Allawi is that he did not follow the usual method of choosing his ministers, and that he had to ask them to present their candidates to choose their ministers from among them.”

The observer added, “However, Allawi fell into the forbidden when he looked at participation in the ruling from the quota system, and that his choices were also not out of the scope of the political process in effect since 2003. The ministers chosen by Allawi had previously worked in previous governments.”

He expected that the overthrow of the Allawi government would not pass an ordinary event, and that it might set off multi-faceted conflicts, pointing out that the “impassable path in which the parties wanted to go may lead to a conflict between the institutions of the presidency and parliament, which may lead to the overthrow of Halbousi in order to maintain a balanced relationship. With the Kurds through Barham Salih. ”
