Tariq Harb provides a legal opinion on the re-election

Baghdad – people  

Legal expert Tariq Harb said that those who object to the election results do not exceed 2% of the political scene, stressing that there is currently no legal way to repeat the elections.  

Harb said in an interview with my colleague Ahmed Al-Tayeb, followed by “Nass”, that “the elections will not be repeated unless a decision is issued by the new parliament after its meeting, that the new parliament dissolve itself and hold early elections, and this is an unlikely option because the next parliament will not take a step of this kind based on To the objection of a few people who represent no more than 2 percent of the political scene.”  

Harb questioned the figures announced by the Shiite coordination framework, which talks about reaching 90 seats, asking, “Who are these, and what are their names?” He suggested that “the Sadrist bloc will be able to form a national majority that includes the highest winners from the Kurdish, Shiite and Sunni components.”  

A member of the political bureau of the “Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq” movement, Saad al-Saadi, said in an interview with colleague Laith al-Jazaery, followed by “Nass”, that “the re-election is one of the biggest democratic manifestations, and one of the factors that instill confidence between the people and the authorities.”    

He added, “If fraud is proven, there will be no objection to the re-election, and we have evidence – which we may present to public opinion if we reach a dead end – that will lead to the re-election.”    

And he stated, “We have no problem with the tour conducted by Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr with the political blocs, but in the coordinating framework we said that we will not conduct any negotiations before deciding on the appeals, and the Kurds and Sunnis share this concern with us, and they also have evidence, in addition to that they told us explicitly, that they will not ally themselves. With any Shiite party without the other before full consensus within the Shiite house.”

He continued, “We do not have a complex about the formation of the Sadrist bloc’s next government, and we have suggested that we may boycott the political process if the political process is not corrected, or if we oppose, but we will not obstruct the work of the next government according to the formula (play or sabotage the stadium)”, adding that “there is a will We must pay the price for our embrace of the popular mobilization and resistance factions.”

In response to the fact that the poor coordination between the alliances caused the Al-Fateh alliance to lose, he considered “the Al-Fateh alliance obtaining 16 seats as an indication of fraud, stressing that he would have accepted the results if it had given Al-Fateh 35 seats or more because these results may actually indicate poor coordination, and we could have won More than 40 seats if we coordinate the nomination of candidates in the constituencies.”      

Regarding the features of the next government, Khazali said, “The current situation is not suitable for forming a national majority government, and this will lead us to instability, because the losing party has evidence that the elections are a failure and fraud, and it will not be possible to talk about a rude Sadrist candidate or a rude framer, etc., but rather Asmaa can be put forward in this context as a political maneuver.”      

He added, “If the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, can form a majority government, we have no objection (..) If the Sadrist movement’s and the reference’s assessments say that the country’s situation is tolerable, then let them form a majority government, but the Kurds, Sunnis and the religious reference are convinced that the country’s situation cannot pass.” in order to affect the results of these elections.      

He continued, “The issue of the candidacy of the brothers in the current “Sadr Qah” is a political maneuver, and I do not think that they have a political decision to adopt this option to the end. As for the owners of Qah, al-Maliki said that he rejects this.”      

Khazali said in a press statement (November 4, 2021) that “there is no server in the Emirates, and this problem has been overcome and the server has been transferred to the Commission (in Baghdad), but there is a Frick calculator responsible for displaying the results, which is not checked by the German company, Frick’s calculator is known to the commission, as is Frick’s identity.”        

He added, “We said earlier within the coordination framework that the elections in this way are fraudulent and we will not participate in them, and our conviction is to adopt manual counting and sorting, but a session took place in the presence of the three presidencies, the Judicial Council and the Chairman of the Commission, and the problems were raised, and the head of the commission pledged that these elections are safe and cannot be rigged. And that he is ready to dispel fears by giving a tape from each box to each candidate before connecting it to the Internet and sending the results, and choosing a random box for manual counting and sorting, and for the commission to hand over a copy of each box for all the ballot papers that they entered within 72 hours, but what happened is that None of these decisions have been implemented.        

Al-Khazali threatened to resort to the Security Council to challenge the election results, describing the Security Council’s blessing of the Iraqi elections as a “stigma” in the council’s history. He also said that “the choice of boycotting the political process and our deputies refraining from taking the oath, or not participating in the next government and turning to the opposition are possibilities. “.

Baghdad / Obelisk: The writer David Ignatius said in an opinion article published by the American newspaper The Washington Post on November 8, 2021 that the last attempt to assassinate Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi shocked the Iraqis and its purpose was to undermine his role in running the country. 
The writer said that the attack was described as “cowardly”, by Al-Kazemi himself, and was condemned by the United Nations, the Biden administration and a wide range of Iraqi politicians, Iran and countries.

The writer said: I met Al-Kazemi in the small villa decorated with modern art only a few months ago, and it is the same one that was bombed.

 The writer considered that the attack was counterproductive, and its goal was to deprive Prime Minister Al-Kazemi of a second term, but its outcomes came in the opposite way, as it made his second term in office almost certain.

The writer saw that Al-Kazemi has been living in the crossfire since he took office in May 2020 and tried to direct a path between the United States and Iran.

The writer revealed that Al-Kazemi was about to start talks about forming a new government with Al-Sadr and other prominent politicians.
