It was only one week after the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi, which was granted confidence by the parliament on 25 October, until it began to tighten, under threat and hinting at withdrawing confidence from it and overthrowing it.
But what is striking is that the masses that are looming are the same that supported Abdul Mahdi and brought him to power and gave confidence to his government. The explanation for this does not seem to be a difficult task as the consensus papers unfold.
An Iraqi official in Baghdad, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said in an interview with the new Arab that the government of Abdul-Mahdi has 180 days before being subject to a comprehensive assessment on the performance of all ministers and the measurement of the promises made. He also talked about the existence of conditions taken on the Prime Minister by some of the blocks before the session of granting confidence to him pending completion by Abdul Mahdi, stressing that the new Prime Minister may be the most prime ministers accept the subject of resignation in the event that felt there is a decision to withdraw confidence from him.
The new prime minister does not have any bloc or political party to defend him, as he is the first official to reach power in Iraq in a way of reconciliation between the two Shiite camps. This came after a major four-month crisis that ended with the intervention of the Shi'ite religious authority Najaf, which supported a compromise candidate among the Shi'ite factions, Adel Abdul Mahdi.
According to the Iraqi official himself, the presence of the settlement candidate pushed the blocks to besiege the conditions in order to obtain a return for support, including the removal of US troops from Iraq next year and support the popular mobilization and the inclusion of arms deals and the allocation of rules similar to the Iraqi army, as well as the cancellation of decisions of the Prime Minister Previous Haidar Abadi.
The source pointed out that "the blocs agreed with Abdul Mahdi, that in the event of exceeding the deadline for the implementation of his government will withdraw confidence from him by agreement blocs," noting that "there is no option to Abdul Mahdi, but the commitment to the time specified for him, or he will have to resign before it is Withdraw confidence from him. "
The political blocs appear to be confident that Abdul Mahdi will not be able to implement his government program within the time allotted to him.
The leader of the construction coalition, Haider al-Zubaidi said that "the political blocs gave Abdul Mahdi an opportunity to take his role to reform the political process, through his government program, and gave him sufficient time to implement this program." With the knowledge that "construction" includes the alliance "conquest" led by Hadi al-Amiri and "coalition of the rule of law" led by Nuri al-Maliki and other blocs.
Zubaidi said that "this deadline would be imposed on any prime minister, whether Abdul Mahdi or other, as the intention is to work to serve the people and the public interest." He stressed that "Abdul Mahdi agreed to this deadline, and assume responsibility, and that any defect in the government program, or abandon its implementation, whether in whole or in part will be in violation of the agreement with him.
He pointed out that "the government program is the responsibility of Abdul Mahdi, and he has to do it in all its details. As political blocs, we will have a responsibility to follow up the implementation of the program in the right way, and in the opposite way we will have mobility and steps to hold Abdul Mahdi and his government and take any appropriate decision, And to overthrow his government. "
"The government program introduced by Abdelmahdi to the parliament can not be applied by the British prime minister in World War II, even if Hitler and Adolf Hitler support him," said Sheikh Ali, Benito) Mussolini and Saddam Hussein. "
The political blocs do not seem so far satisfied with Abdel-Mahdi and his government as it appeared that the language of threat and waving to overthrow his government is the tyrant on the political blocs that supported him and voted for his government. "The ministers nominated in the government of Abdul-Mahdi, all of them candidates of political parties and blocs," said Ali al-Badiri, a deputy of the Reform and Reconstruction bloc (led by former prime minister) Haider al-Abadi.
He stressed that "the electronic filtering window did not have any role in the formation of the new ministerial cabin, except the passage of some candidates of the political blocs as independent technocrats." He pointed out that the presence of ministers questionable integrity with the possibility of preventing them from taking office by the judiciary and the Integrity and Accountability Committee may make the remaining number of members of the Cabinet Cab approved in Parliament less than half plus one, and then the government will become lawless and fall constitutionally.
In parallel, in an unprecedented precedent, the Integrity Commission also announced the formation of a special team to investigate and follow-up the work of the government of Abdul Mahdi. Observers believe that Omar Abdul Mahdi's government will not exceed the deadline, as a government subject to political will.
The political expert Aref Mohammed said that "the Iraqi political blocs did not agree before, as agreed today on the government of Abdul Mahdi." He explained that "this consensus and agreement, and the formation of investigation and control teams on the government of Abdul-Mahdi, and the collection of corruption files against their ministers, will lead to the end of the life of this government," noting that "the disaster lies in the Prime Minister is in need of parliamentary blocs, mechanism".
He pointed out that "the government of Abdul Mahdi, will remain the government of a weak patient until the withdrawal of confidence from them, as Abdel-Mahdi can only implement what you want the political blocs, especially the large blocs that can overthrow his government parliamentary."
