The deadline for the Prime Minister to send the names of the candidates of the remaining ministries

The deadline of 48 days, which was granted to Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, to send the names of the candidates for the eight remaining ministries, the House of Representatives, without that, amid the political weights available today, before the voting session scheduled for tomorrow.

"Abdul Mahdi did not send the names of the ministers of the eight remaining ministries in his cabinet (defense, interior, higher education, education, culture, justice, migration, displacement and planning) so far, but they may arrive within hours," a political source said on December 3, 2018.

The next, or the morning of Monday, "according to Al-Quds Al-Arabi.
The source, who asked not to be identified, said the aim of the deputies’ request to send names 48 hours before the voting session is to give sufficient time to see the curricula vitae of the candidates.

He added that the reason not to send the names of candidates to the parliament, is not reached Abdul-Mahdi to an agreement with the political blocs, explaining that "the dispute on the Ministries of Interior, Defense and Justice, is the most prominent, while the rest of the ministries almost conclusive."

He pointed out that the remaining eight ministries are divided according to the following: Culture of the movement of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, education and planning year of the building alliance, and justice is different between the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the Kurdistan Democratic, and migration to minorities (Christian component), and higher education of the rule of law.

As for the Ministries of Defense and Interior, the dispute over the candidate of the "building" only coalition Falih Al Fayadh to the Ministry of Interior still exists, according to the source, which was likely to resort to the vote of deputies in the resolution of the position, while attention went back to the candidate of the coalition,

"national" Faisal Jarba for the post of Minister Defense, after accepting his objection to the decision to include the procedures of "accountability and justice".

The Supreme Judicial Council, accepting the objection of a candidate for the post of Ministry of Defense, the decision to include the procedures of "accountability and justice."

With this decision, Jarba is a strong candidate for the post of defense minister to compete with former parliament speaker Salim al-Jubouri, who is also one of the country’s top Sunni candidates.

As a result, the National Coalition headed by Iyad Allawi, who is due to be the position of "electoral entitlement", adherence to the candidate "sole" of the Ministry of Defense Faisal Fanar Aljraba, considering that "the acceptance of the Federal Court of Cassation appeal filed by the Jabba on the decision of the accountability and justice , Gave definitive evidence on the impartiality and independence of the judiciary. "

"The challenge is very big for the government, so how can you face this challenge and the cabinet is incomplete?" Said MP Mansour al-Baiji, the state’s lawmaker, so the prime minister must take full responsibility, not be affected by any pressure and attend the next meeting. And put the ball in the court of the House of Representatives to vote on them. "

"If he does not attend, the current government will not last long and will collapse at any moment because it will be a weak government that can not meet the challenges," he recalled.

alliance of the others, Enas Makusi, on Saturday, that its coalition will not bear responsibility for the failure of Adel Abdul-Mahdi in the government, indicating the Mahdi is responsible for his failure.

"Allawi’s coalition has given full powers to Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi to choose his ministerial cabinet according to his own vision, and therefore we can not take responsibility for his failure.

There is a great spectrum of political forces who voted for him in a session to give confidence to his government," al-Mukassousi told Iraq News.

Allawi rejects the post of Deputy Prime Minister .. "MP is becoming Minister"

The formation of the Iraqi government is limited to two ways, one of which will anger America a lot

8/23/2018A political source revealed on Wednesday that there are two ways to form the next government, one of which may end US sanctions on Iraq.

Baghdad is witnessing a political movement to form a new government. But behind the scenes, even on stage, two foreign players are involved: Iran and America.

The announcement of the Federal Supreme Court in Iraq last Sunday (18 August 2018) ratification of the results of the parliamentary elections to lift the heat of the political environment; the declaration is the beginning of a constitutional deadline of 90 days before the winning parties to form the next government.

"The first way is to maintain the usual consensual style of reaching a figure that is mutually agreed upon by external actors and that is not calculated on one side or another and as a result a weak government will be formed without parliamentary opposition,"

the source said – close to the decision-making circle.
And completed "while the second way is to win one of the external axes in the formation of the largest bloc and the departure of another party to the opposition."

"If Iran wins in the second scenario, it will lead to the withdrawal of US support with expectations of US sanctions against Iraq."

"There are a lot of files, including human rights, economic and military, ready to move," he said.

The five Shiite blocs won the majority of the votes in the parliamentary elections among them to form the largest bloc.

The information was received about the formation of a "nucleus" of the largest bloc between "Suron" led by Sadr, and "stream of wisdom" led by Ammar al-Hakim, "National Coalition" led by Iyad Allawi, and "list of victory" led by Prime Minister Haider Abadi. But until now he has not officially seen the light.

At the opposite end stands the "Alliance of conquest" (popular crowd), which was second in the results of the election led by Hadi al-Ameri, accompanied by "coalition of the rule of law" led by Nuri al-Maliki in a bloc closer to Iran.

Sadr, Hakim, Allawi and Abbadi are estimated to have American support, while Tehran supports Amiri and Maliki.

The major Kurdish parties, led by the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the National Union, are in addition to the mainstream of the parties and the Sunni blocs, waiting for the Shiites to resolve their decision to form the largest bloc.…2%D9%8A%D9%86/

Allawi: The recent elections a big farce and a crime against the Iraqi people

The head of the National Coalition Iyad Allawi, Saturday, that the rates of forgery that emerged recently during the process of counting and sorting in Kirkuk, confirms that the recent elections a farce and a crime against the Iraqi people.

In a statement received by "Eye of Iraq News", Allawi said that "the percentage of forgery that resulted from the results of counting and manual counting in Kirkuk reached in some centers to fifty percent."

He stressed that "the need for judges to amend the third law of elections of the House of Representatives, which provides for the re-counting and sorting manually for all funds in the provinces of Iraq and without exception in respect of the will of the Iraqi people to choose who represents.

He warned that "the violation of the above law will lose the political process the remaining credibility of the Iraqis and the international community, which requires the return of the elections in spite of the attempts of some parties and States to cover the crime of fraud and the formation of parliament and the government is not fair based fraud.

London newspaper: Five scenarios to form a new government


Al-Hayat newspaper said in a report, "There are five scenarios on the table, to form a new government.

The first goes to the meeting of the blocks of Sadr and Abadi and Allawi and a number of Kurdish forces and other small parties to announce the largest bloc that forms the government headed by Abbadi, an alliance leading the political situation, after the payment of the rest of the winners, such as (Fath) and (state law) to the opposition,

"indicating that "This scenario is hampered by the possibility of collisions with the excluded parties, especially that it may require conditions imposed by Sadr, as Abadi withdrawal from the Dawa Party, and other imposed by the Sunni and Kurdish parties, produce a government more vulnerable than the previous one.

"And the second scenario, he goes to the alliance of Abadi with al-Maliki and the (conquest), and the polarization of Sunni and Kurdish forces to form the largest bloc, and push Sadr to the opposition," noting that "this is not easy also,

because it is difficult to return to the collection of Abadi and Maliki in One bloc, not to mention their meeting with the armed factions winning, which clashes with Abadi before the elections. "

"The third scenario is borrowed from the mechanism of forming the 2014 government, where the Shiite forces meet within the scope of what is known as the National Alliance to form the largest bloc and nominate the prime minister, an option that might dismantle both Sadr and Abadi lists, both Sunni and secular Alliance on a sectarian basis. "

The fourth scenario, according to the newspaper, it "combines Sadr and Abadi and Ameri in one alliance is the largest bloc, as this alliance responds to the conditions of Sadr not to ally with al-Maliki on the one hand, and achieves flexibility in dealing with the armed forces pushed by the elections to the forefront,"

indicating that " Remains a final scenario, is the success of Maliki and al-Ameri form an alliance with Sunnis and Kurds, which is unlikely in the light of the results of both parties.

Iraq may soon be Without a Government, as Clock Runs Out

The term of Iraq’s current parliament ends June 30, but a mandated manual recount of votes cast in the May 12 election hasn’t even begun, and disputes are deepening among some political blocs. This could create a constitutional vacuum, which would worsen an already-bad situation.

Parliament was slated to meet June 27 to vote on a bill to extend its term until the Federal Supreme Court confirms the election results. The court, however, was proactive and issued a decision June 26 rejecting an extension, citing the constitutional mandate that parliament serves four calendar years. The current parliament first convened July 1, 2014.

The court’s decision stated that any legislation passed after July 1 will be unconstitutional and “its consequences shall be null and void.”

The ruling sparked mixed reactions among Iraq’s political forces. Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri and some political parties had supported the extension, and warned of a possible constitutional vacuum. Jabouri failed to secure a seat during the election.

Meanwhile, the winning political blocs, including the Sairoon Alliance headed by Muqtada al-Sadr, which won the largest number of parliament seats, condemned the idea of extending parliament’s term. Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) member Hoshyar Zebari called the proposed extension “a new trick.” Jamal al-Karbouli, head of the Iraq is Our Identity party, said it was an attempted “political coup.”

To speed up the recount process, the Federal Supreme Court decided the review will include only votes from areas where results were contested, whether within Iraq or abroad. The court also approved parliament’s vote to dismiss some senior members of the Independent High Electoral Commission and replace them with judges. Adel al-Nouri, the commission’s head, said the dismissed members were accused of election tampering.

After a storage unit containing ballot boxes was set on fire in early June, protection measures were tightened at stations where ballots are stored. More than 5,000 members of the police, army and counterterrorism forces have been deployed to 21 such stations across the country.

“All managers of polling stations and offices where there have been complaints are instructed to transfer the ballot boxes and the electronic verification devices to designated locations in Baghdad,” Electoral Commission spokesman Laith Hamza said in a statement.

“The recount will take place in the presence of representatives of the United Nations, political blocs, as well as representatives of the candidates,” he added.

Skeptics of the election results are trying to get more monitors involved in supervising the recount. Iraqi Vice President Ayad Allawi, who heads the National Coalition, called on the Arab League and judiciary to participate in monitoring.

As the controversy over the vote results escalates, political parties are still discussing how to form a majority bloc that will be entrusted to choose the next Cabinet.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, during a June 23 visit to Najaf where he met with Sadr, announced an alliance between his al-Nasr bloc and Sadr’s Sairoon.

In a joint press conference with Abadi, Sadr said, “The alliance between the two sides will lead to formation of a cross-sectarian, technocratic government representing all the Iraqi people.”

He added, “The agreement includes supporting the army, placing all arms and weapons under the control of the state, developing a program to reform the judiciary, activating the role of the general prosecutor to continue combating corruption and holding accountable those accused of corruption,” Sadr added.

He also stressed that foreign forces in Iraq should commit “to not interfere in Iraqi domestic affairs.”

Sadr forged some alliances earlier this month, first with the National Wisdom Movement led by Ammar al-Hakim and Allawi’s National Coalition, followed by another alliance with the Fatah bloc led by Hadi al-Amiri, which comprises several Popular Mobilization Units factions and is close to Iran.

He didn’t touch on his previous alliances in the latest announcement with Abadi. This raises the question, is he looking for the best alliance partners for the future government, only to renege on alliances with other forces? Or is he looking for a comprehensive alliance that will bring together the various forces under his electoral list?

Abadi, who would like to keep his position as prime minister, said his alliance with Sadr doesn’t conflict with the latter’s declared alliances and doesn’t mean Sadr is “against other coalitions.” It appears Sadr doesn’t oppose forming a comprehensive alliance, as long as the different blocs come under his list, which would lead the Cabinet selection.

As things stand now, it seems that selecting a Cabinet using a comprehensive coalition is a possible option. This would happen shortly after the commission finishes recounting the votes and the federal court confirms the official results. This would spare the country a lengthy constitutional vacuum or an extension of parliament’s term.
