Baghdad: Omar Abdul Latif
Political experts see the possibility of going to the “blocking third” option as a solution to get out of the impasse in forming the next government. This came after the statements of the leader of the winning forces in the elections, Muqtada al-Sadr, who stressed that he would not participate in a coalition or consensual government, indicating that "going to the opposition is better for us."
Al-Sadr said: The only solution to save Iraq is to form the government and the loser will be in the opposition, or vice versa.
Based on these data, there are expectations that there will be a strong opposition in the House of Representatives that will exercise its oversight role over the performance of the executive authority, or go to the “blocking third” option, which means that a political bloc obtains a third of the number of ministerial portfolios in the government, which allows it to control its decisions and suspending its meetings.
Professor of political science, Iyad Al-Anbar, said: The experience of the blocking third may be the key for those who can mobilize in the parliament by blocking many projects that could embarrass the government in the event of an opposition current, adding that the weights needed by the majority do not assume the existence of such an experiment.
Al-Amber explained that the blocking third in Lebanon is linked to a sectarian address, while in Iraq it can turn into a political address through the opposition, which in itself is an opportunity to activate the true role of Parliament after it was robbed of the will and all the blocs in power, which are the same in
Political analyst Dr. Ali al-Jubouri disagreed with this approach, and said: The ground is not prepared for there to be a disabled third as it exists in Lebanon, noting that the situation may be heading towards consensus.
Meanwhile, Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Baghdad, Dr. Mufid Al-Zaidi, warned that Iraq is a different case due to previous experiences, internal challenges, regional alliances and its economic situation from Lebanon, pointing out that the pessimism that mars the political process is found by others as a key to a breakthrough.
Al-Zaidi added that many hope that they will witness a semi-consensus between the parties participating in the political process to reach a solution that satisfies all parties and gives a new experience different from previous experiences.
