The independent Iraqi politician and former parliament member Izzat Shabandar, close to Vice President Nuri al-Maliki, said on Sunday that close to the latter gave him advice on the post of prime minister.
Shabandar told a Saudi newspaper that "it is no longer possible to circulate the same old story about who is the candidate for the post of prime minister next in Iraq after the elections scheduled for the fifth month of this year, which was: that unless Maliki is who?
He explained that "this error common in the limitation of the position in one or two specific people ended and no longer exist in the agreement on the specifications of the next prime minister has nothing to do with this or that name and therefore no opportunity for all the names traded outside the context of what is agreed to the specifications of" .
Shabandar added that "today it is about new criteria to choose who can take this responsibility, starting from personal specifications to national, Arab, regional and international, to the extent that I can say with him that the circulation of certain names of the largest mass has become the past, For certain discussions with many parties, names and specifications are not traded, and there is a huge difference between the two. In the past and in all previous sessions, it was restricted to a group of names based on the criteria of the largest bloc. "
In response to a question about leaving al-Maliki in the tribal assembly in Karbala door on the possibility of the possibility of the candidate, Shabandar said that "Maliki will not run for office again, and has repeated this several times, but certain parties advised him not to repeat this story always, and this advice made him deny that This time modestly. "
He explained that "Maliki is the leader of a bloc and he wants to get his bloc the largest number of seats in the next parliament, as the parties that expressed their desire to ally with him (the rule of law) or is willing to join them, working to form the largest bloc within the parliament to form a vision About who will be the next prime minister, but according to the new specifications, not according to the principle of consensus and deals, and the consequences that could result in the negative harvest by Iraq every time.
Shabandar called on the Arab, regional and international environment "not to be ruled by the principle of wrong competition in the choice of the next prime minister, and then to insist on the basis that it will achieve his interest at the expense of the other party, and instead of the interests of Iraq first and the interests of all other legitimate parties become it Internal and external conflicts so that the result is a loss for all. "
He said he wished Iran "not to look for someone who is consistent with its calculations in the region, and the same for the Arab countries."
