Abdul Mahdi sends the message of “the last chance” and threatens “a decisive stance”

Shafaq News / The resigned Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, called on the political forces on Tuesday to show more flexibility and moderation to end the file of forming the new government, threatening to take a “decisive stance” in the coming days.

This came in a lengthy message addressed to the President of the Republic Barham Salih, Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi and members of Parliament.

Abdul-Mahdi said in his message, “I submitted my resignation on November 29, 2019, and we are nearing the end of April 2020 and no new government has been formed. The Brotherhood commissioned Allawi and Al-Zorfi was not successful, and recently he commissioned Brother Al-Kazemi, who is supposed to form his government before the next 9 May. Which reveals Either from constitutional breaches or serious deficiencies in constitutional applications and political traditions, or imbalances of prevailing concepts and behaviors of political forces, or societal oppositions that hinder each other, or pressing regional and international balances, and most of all that. ”

He added, “We exerted and exerted utmost efforts and promoted the provision of support and assistance for the success of the duty-holders out of our proximity or after us from any of them, in order to realize that the status quo is the most dangerous. With this message to my brothers and sisters, that this may be the last chance to prevent reaching a completely dead end. ”

Abdel Mahdi continued, “I know the courage of leaders and officials, and they sacrificed and sacrificed their lives and themselves for the sake of the country, so it is difficult to understand their positions when they do not sacrifice their own visions and the interests of their forces in the face of this crisis that threatens the country. My perception is that there are wrong views – that they are not corrected and agree on the rules of conduct Joint – we will remain in a continuous cycle. ”

He pointed out that “the concept of the independent minister is not an absolute truth, but rather a temporary partial practice necessitated by the reality of the uniqueness of successive political forces and successive governments, and the injustice of the election law and the law of parties, as they are against the will of the voters, which generated quotas and a monopoly of power from the highest summits to the lowest.” So the independents were invited in response to all this. ”

“Many powers say they exercise their right to demand specific ministries according to the election results. They have argued about what is going on in other countries. And we have seen this to be a mistaken comparison. There are majority governments of one party or a coalition of parties formed according to the electoral curricula.”

Abdul-Mahdi pointed out that “the claim of some to specific locations as a specific ministry does not make sense. If a program in this ministry told me this violates the government curriculum, which leaves no room for doubt that the desire will be to benefit from the ministry instead of benefiting from it according to a unified program of the government.”

He also said, “In our circumstances, it will not be possible for the parties to be completely absent from the sites and the curricula, as it will not be possible to deny the right to options for nomination, acceptance and rejection. They are the ones who will vote in the House of Representatives, and he will bear the greatest responsibility in the government. Therefore, a compromise agreement must be reached in a poll. Parties or in the nomination of those who meet the conditions agreed upon nationally, and – in return – are allowed to charge the last word for the selection of ministers, especially since his decision will not be final, as the last word will return to the House of Representatives to vote either positively or negatively.

He stated, “The situation is not ideal, but if we set the worst prospects in the event of failure, and we all enjoyed the necessary flexibility, then a compromise can be reached. If this third attempt to commission is not successful, does anyone expect the fourth or fifth attempt to succeed? Especially if our resignation was in response to a call from The reference and popular forces to find a solution to the deadlock that the country has reached. The goal was not to change people but to change equations. And that the resignation of a resigned Prime Minister to the daily caretaker government is the survival of the previous equations and leads to inertia and emptiness inevitably. That is why we cannot continue. I reject all those who open me, and with insistence from key and influential parties, that they are ready to facilitate the return from the resignation, especially since it did not vote on it in the House of Representatives. My government’s equation with the conditions that are no longer able to manage the country’s situations properly. My understanding is that any government in our current circumstances must It meets two basic things. ”

He said, “National consensus or a majority can support the government, which is what the current government lacked in practice, even with theoretical availability. What was mentioned above about the parliament, the blocs, and the government is sufficient, and the core of the signal understands.”

Abdul-Mahdi pointed out that “the international and regional imbalance in Iraq is not necessarily a mistake we made, but rather extremist policies imposed by others, and no Iraqi Iraqi government can match it. When a party’s friendship becomes conditional upon the hostility of another friend, Iraq – according to our national experiences – He will win a little and lose a lot.

He noted that “in my message on 2/3/2020, I called for an extraordinary session to settle the election law, the districts and the commission, and set 12/12/2020 as the deadline for the elections, and nothing was mentioned, and the crisis was intended to continue. There is no agreement on a new government, nor An end to the crisis is determined by early elections, so the result will necessarily be the continuation of the day-to-day government and its full responsibility for difficult and complicated situations, which cannot be sustained. ”

Abdel-Mahdi called for “enjoying the required flexibility and reaching compromise solutions to form a new government that can administer elections and have the powers required to manage the country’s crises, especially amid huge developments that great countries have become concerned about their future, including the collapse of global economies, oil prices, the Corona pandemic, and the continuation of terrorism and other matters.” Thorny, with reaffirmation that I will take the appropriate and decisive stance in light of the results you will reach during the next few days. ”
