Baghdad / Obelisk: A statement issued by the meeting of the three presidencies with political forces, last Monday, sparked controversy, after describing the results as (objective), at a time when the Commission ended the manual counting processes without changing the results.

And political analyst and researcher Qusai Mahbouba said in a tweet on Twitter that “the meeting of the Presidency of the Republic, the Presidency of the Judiciary and the Prime Minister with a political bloc that rejects the election results to issue such a statement in this format, means that the three presidencies of Iraq are also floundering and entered the stage of political wandering.”

Mahbouba asked: What does a legal treatment of subjective results mean, and what is the explanation for that?

A meeting was held, last Monday evening, between the forces of the coordination framework and each of the presidents of the republic, ministers and the Supreme Judicial Council, calling for media and security calm, with the continuation of political dialogues to get out of the current crisis.

 The meeting’s statement called for searching for legal remedies for the non-objective election results that would restore confidence to all parties in the electoral process.

Absent from the meeting, important parties, including the former parliament, and parties rejecting the election results, which turns its outcomes into ink on paper, according to analyzes.

In fact, political sources in the obelisk’s communication with them considered the meeting a window to a way out of the crisis, not by imposing an entitlement, but rather by appeasing the parties dissatisfied with the elections.

The Sadrist movement that won the elections and was convinced of its results, a source told Al-Masala that the meeting of the political forces opposing the election results with the three presidencies did not offer real solutions to the political reality, and that the Sadrist bloc is the largest and therefore it is the one that nominates the prime minister.

Lawyer and writer Ali Al-Obaidi believes in a tweet, that there is no constitutional or legal way through the Federal Court to change the election results or return them in any way. The only way is to disrupt the work of the constitution and zero the system completely, and this is impossible.
