A positive American view of the “Forces of Change” alliance: It may be the alternative for the Iraqi political class

Shafaq News/ The American “Washington Institute” considered that the recent announcement of the formation of the “forces for democratic change” in Baghdad, as an Iraqi political movement, constitutes an initiative that “frustrated” Iraqis can look forward to as an alternative to the stagnant political class.

The American report, which was translated by Shafak News Agency, indicated that after more than a year of striving to reach a consensus and a common vision, the October Movement and other political forces with civilian orientations succeeded in agreeing on a common political platform, which it is hoped will provide the Iraqi people with a platform for the movement. Exhibitions.

He mentioned that on October 15, a conference of 1,000 people was held at the Baghdad International Fair, and 8 political parties joined in order to formally establish the “forces for democratic change.”

The report considered that it is imperative to view this development as a positive maturation of the political wing of the October movement/civil movement in particular, because it is moving away from the policies of deals or flowery, but useless statements, and is moving towards establishing an opposition line that can present an effective and clear alternative when the opportunity arises. .

He pointed out that the Democratic Forces for Change consists of an executive council of the leaders of the eight assembled parties, a political office to define policies, a program office responsible for capacity-building initiatives, a communication committee to expand the alliance with other similar-oriented parties and groupings, and a communications office for external marketing and popular support mobilization.

This structure is important as it avoids the current political parties’ over-reliance on unnecessary committees, such as the Youth Committee, and regulates the decision-making process, as agreed upon with the consent of the 1,000 participants, legitimizing it, the report added.

He explained that the eight parties are the “National House”, “The Iraqi House”, the “Iraqi Communist Party”, the “Social Democratic Current”, “I’m Going to Take My Right”, the “Tishreen Democratic Movement”, the “Iraqi Promise” and the “Democratic Current”. collective”.

He noted that these parties represent a wide range of specific views, and have never been able to agree on a common platform and principles in the past.

The report added that in addition to calling for a transitional government to oversee the resumption of normal governmental activity with preparations for a new round of elections, which Prime Minister Muhammad Shia’a al-Sudani is expected to strongly object to, the coalition also put forward twenty political positions.

However, the report pointed out that all 20 points require additional definition to become political proposals, adding that many of them reflect somewhat ambitious, especially in this political climate.

He also noted that the coalition emphasizes economic growth, enhancing government budget transparency, defending basic freedoms, re-establishing decentralization, and the concept of a majority government with a meaningful opposition.

He explained that the Democratic Forces for Change deliberately excluded discussion of a joint electoral list or coordination on candidates, and instead focused on building the foundation that would be necessary when the structure and timing of future elections became clearer.

According to the report, this approach is considered necessary, especially in view of the tyranny, arrogance, and grinding internal conflict that characterized the civil-oriented parties and groupings in the past.

The report expressed the hope that these forces would build the necessary momentum to attract voters and mobilize them in sufficient numbers to change the electoral map in Iraq, noting that it was a process that began in 2021 and did not reach the necessary turning point to force the current incumbents to enter a game with new rules.

The legitimacy granted by the leadership of the “National House” and the structure of the emerging alliance based on old organizing techniques emanating from the Communist Party, which has been eagerly waiting for such an opportunity for decades, make the democratic forces of change in front of them an opportunity for a new situation through the legitimacy granted by the leadership of the “National House” and the structure of the emerging alliance based on the old organizing techniques emanating from the Communist Party, though hampered by the obstinacy of the “Extension” movement, which has so far refused to join forces, in a sign of its alarmingly growing arrogance.

The report expressed regret that it is also possible that this initiative will fail due to internal fighting, competition for leadership, or the infiltration of spoilers from the existing parties.

He considered that the citizens’ disappointment with the poor government performance and the corrupt political class, developed from sporadic street protests to the large, but widespread and unorganized social mobilization, of the October revolution that witnessed in 2019 and 2020 to the emerging and competing factional “groupings” today.

The report concluded by saying that the conference and its mobilization and propaganda approach raised the concern of the militias allied with Iran and its political allies, noting that it called on Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s recent government to exercise state control to prevent mobilization in the street.

He concluded by saying that the democratic forces for change sought what is much more important and organized than what could be organized by political parties allied with militias.
