“Minister of Al-Sadr” threatens the frame: Tomorrow will soon be seen

Shafaq News/ Saleh Muhammad al-Iraqi, who is known as “Minister of al-Sadr”, put on Friday ten new reasons for the withdrawal of the Sadrist movement’s leader Muqtada al-Sadr from the political process, while the coordinating framework vowed to say, “Tomorrow will see it soon.”

The Minister of Al-Sadr said in a tweet seen by Shafak News Agency, “Most of the Shiite political blocs were affiliated with (the Al-Sadr family), if we did not say all of them, so we offered them a candidate for prime minister, the son of their reference and their martyr, and they rejected him.”

He added, “Those politicians or all of al-Sadr thought well of them… they betrayed him and supported others, and some might imagine that his decision to withdraw was to hand Iraq over to the corrupt and consensual.

Al-Sadr’s minister clarified that “our return to the elections after the withdrawal was for two important things: the first: normalization, and this has been criminalized. The second: the criminalization of obscenity: (homosexuals). Let’s see what they do?! Will they pass a new and detailed law, especially with the escalation of pressures?” Western colonialism against his opponents!?.”

He explained, “Our withdrawal is to embarrass the opponents who have protested against the elections because they are rigged. Will they continue to form a government from fraudulent elections?! What will its legitimacy be!???!.. Will they agree with the normalizers and the Emiratis!?.. Will the missiles reach Anbar and Erbil? And also to reveal the claimant of belonging to the October revolution?! .. Who was the decision to withdraw the leader al-Sadr from the political process as a withdrawal for them from the revolution and the demonstration and the storming of Anbar and the like.. Some of them even turned the goal of the demonstrations to support the consensus government.

And he continued, “If Al-Sadr remained insistent on forming a majority government, this would have lasted for several months or more. So what would the reaction of the blocs, the people and others would be!!?.. Perhaps this reminds us of the 8 months that Al-Sadr delayed the arrival of (the leader of necessity) ) to the Prime Minister.. so they put the accusations against his Eminence and accused him of personal enmity and harming the people.”

He explained, “Many thought that demanding a majority government was a political struggle for power… We were never students of authority, but among you listened to lies,” noting that “the withdrawal brought Shiite alternatives… Will it be the beginning of the strength of the sect?! The suspicious one? Or will the Dora refinery be stolen as the Baiji refinery was stolen before!??

Biden: I will not ask the Gulf states to increase oil production

US President Joe Biden said that the purpose of his upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia is not to persuade the kingdom to increase oil production.

Biden said in a press conference, Thursday evening, in the Spanish capital, Madrid, that he was “not sure” of meeting King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during his visit to the Kingdom in mid-July.

He indicated that he will meet with the king and the crown prince in a “much larger meeting” because the meeting is taking place “in Saudi Arabia and not around Saudi Arabia,” according to the American “Bloomberg” network.

In response to a journalist’s question about the possibility of asking Saudi Arabia to increase oil production, he said that he “won’t ask them to increase production,” noting that all Gulf countries should increase oil production in general, “not just the Saudis.”

Earlier, the White House announced that President Biden will make his first visit to the Middle East from July 13-16, including Saudi Arabia, the Palestinian territories and Israel.

Biden will also attend in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on July 16, a summit that includes the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council, in addition to Egypt, Iraq and Jordan.

Coordination framework: If the Kurds do not come out with one candidate for the presidency, the National Union is the closest to us

politicsbreakingthe kurdfiltersPositionPresident of the Republiccoordinating framework

 2022-07-01 08:14A-AA+

Shafaq News/ The coordination framework, which includes Shiite political forces, renewed its call for the two main parties in the region to reach an agreement to come out with one candidate for the post of President of the Republic, at a time when a deputy from the Kurdistan Democratic bloc confirmed his party’s adherence to the post of President of Iraq.

“We hope that the Kurdish forces will enter the voting session on the president of the republic with one candidate who is distinguished by patriotism and is able to bear and adopt the issues of the country and the people as a whole away from partisanship and nationalism, and to gain political acceptance in Parliament.”

Chihod renewed the framework’s call for the two Kurdish parties, “the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union” to reach final understandings and come up with one agreed candidate and push the candidate to the voting session.

However, he added that “in the event that there is no agreement on one candidate and the nomination of two or more personalities for the position of President of the Republic, the candidate closest to the vote will be from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, because of our association with the Union with a prior strategic alliance.”

In addition, the Kurdistan Democratic Party renewed its adherence to the position of President of the Republic, and that there were extensive understandings and discussions between the Democratic Union and the Union to resolve the crisis of the Presidency of the Republic, according to the party’s deputy, Mahma Khalil.

In his interview with Shafaq News Agency, Khalil refused to reveal more details of the talks between the two Kurdish parties, and said that “the party’s central leadership is in charge of this file and we will abide by any decision it comes out with.”

Last February, the Kurdistan Democratic Party announced the candidacy of the region’s interior minister, Reber Ahmed, for the presidency of the Iraqi republic.

According to the political custom followed throughout the previous sessions, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan has held the position of President of the Republic since the overthrow of the previous regime in 2003.

But in terms of numbers, the fact that the Kurdistan Democratic Party won 31 parliamentary seats in the recent legislative elections, compared to only 17 seats for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, may reverse the equation this time.

The Democratic Party says that the Union nominated Saleh for the position without the consent of the rest of the Kurdish forces, which prompted him to put forward a candidate from his side to fill the position.
