Al-Halbousi: My Resignation Came For These Reasons, And We Warn Against Dragging Disputes Outside Parliament

09/29/2022 43 

Earth News/ Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi confirmed today, Thursday, that his resignation came to remove tension between his party and some other political forces.

Al-Halbousi said in a televised interview, followed by Earth News, that “the current parliament’s composition is completely different from the previous one, and the political steps are different from what they were in the past, and the forces forming the parliament are different as well.”

He added that “there are many reasons behind his resignation, including for the deputies to contribute to their opinion of who is their president, and the second issue is related to the nature of the relationship between the parties – especially between his party and its tense relationship with many political forces that affected the public and the social environment.”

He continued, “My resignation was not a message to Sadr that I am an ascetic in the position and the tripartite alliance ended with Sadr’s departure from Parliament and the coalition,” stressing that “no one can bypass the Sadrist movement in Iraq.”

He pointed out that “Parliament should return to its work, and the legislative authority through which the rest of the work is carried out should not be disrupted, as the absence of Parliament will push differences to other sites, and everyone should sit without preconditions.”

Al-Halbousi also stressed that “the framework candidate did not touch anything but positive and good intentions from him, and these matters will reflect positively on the situation in Iraq – and not on the basis of this position.

He explained that “Al-Sadr’s approval of the candidate will be of interest, and so far, none of the Sadrists have taken the initiative to accept the candidate or express an opinion on it.”

Shafaq News / The Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi, confirmed on Thursday that there were deliberately negative comments on the candidate for the coordination framework for the prime minister, Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani, while indicating that no one in Iraq can bypass the Sadrist movement.

Al-Halbousi said in a television interview, followed by Shafak News Agency, that “negotiations on forming the new Iraqi government began a few days ago,” noting that he proposed “consensus on (Baghdad Document) as an initiative to resolve the political crisis.”

He added, “There are objections about how to choose the prime minister candidate. Al-Sudani represents the current of the Shiite component, and we have the right to object or accept.”

Al-Halbousi pointed out that “the parliament is the appropriate place to discuss political differences, and it was necessary for the parliament to return to work.”

Regarding the Alliance to Save the Homeland, which includes the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Alliance of Sovereignty and the Sadrist bloc, the parliament speaker pointed out that “the tripartite alliance ended as soon as al-Sadr left the parliament, but relations continue, and there is a good relationship with the Kurdistan Democratic Party.”

Regarding submitting a request to Parliament to vote on his resignation from the presidency of the Council, Al-Halbousi noted that “it was a personal decision that does not bear any interpretations.”

Regarding the US support for Iraq, Al-Halbousi said, “The stability of Iraq is not a priority for the current US administration. The US support for Iraq in the past period is more media than realistic.”

Shafaq News/ The American and British governments recalled, on Wednesday, the third anniversary of the “October Revolution”, and while they stressed that they would not allow the recurrence of the Green Zone events and armed clashes, they indicated that the only legitimate way to achieve reform is through constructive and comprehensive dialogue.

The embassy continued, “The path to reform cannot be paved through violence, and the violence we witnessed on August 29 and 30 cannot be allowed to recur. The only legitimate way to achieve reform and form a government that responds to people’s needs is through constructive and inclusive dialogue.”

She called on all parties to “engage in a peaceful, legal and inclusive process with the aim of forming a government with full powers that can improve services, create job opportunities, enhance national unity and make the political system work better for all Iraqis.”

And she concluded, “In the end, this is an Iraqi affair. How to get out of this political impasse is up to the Iraqis only. But as friends, we urge all Iraqi parties to respect state institutions and allow them to work peacefully and effectively and reform the system so that it is fully accountable to the Iraqi people.”
