News / Prime Minister, Nuri al-Maliki confirmed on Saturday, that the
controversy over the mandate of the three presidencies is the decision
of the " Iraqi people" , while hinted that the regime in Iraq is not
"based" on the one-party system; noting that he "would like" to retire
but it is the people decision.
Maliki said in an interview with
"Middle East newspaper "; referring to the controversy over his
extension for a third term, as a prime minister, he said, "It is the
Iraqi people decision not my decision."
He added, "We are not a
system based on one-party, as we have a group of parties and political
forces and components that invoke the constitution and to what the Iraqi
people say," noting that "I want to retire now, but the decision is of
the Iraqi people."
It is noted that the Iraqi parliament has
recently voted to identify the mandate of the three presidencies,
