The election phase has ended with the participation of 9,077,779 voters, with a participation rate of 41% based on the election record and according to the statistics announced by the High Elections Commission, and here we are today starting a new phase, which is the convening of the first session of Parliament, and voting for the Speaker of Parliament and who Then it will be possible to vote on the President of the Republic, which in turn will assign the owner of the largest bloc to form the next government?!
Here we quote the question of the street, who is the largest bloc? Is it the bloc that got the most votes or the bloc that gets the largest number of deputies?
If we say that the largest bloc is the one that gets the largest number of votes, then it is the right of the coordination framework today to form the government, because it got the highest votes with a number of seats 88 or less. One of the components of the “coordinating framework” that was born without buildings?!
Today, after the preliminary results of the parliamentary elections became clear, the political movement of the winning blocs increased, and many dialogues were held, and some of them may have reached negotiations, in order to form the next alliances, through which political agreements leading to the formation of the next government and the distribution of positions are reached. The three presidential terms (the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President of the Republic, the Prime Minister), which, once agreed upon, will show the main features of the next government, and who will be its head.But there is a question that we must answer about the form of the next government. Will it really be a government of electoral merit, formed by the bloc that wins the most votes, or by the bloc that gets the most votes or seats after the coalition among them, or will the situation remain as it is? Was it under the previous government, so that the formation of the new government is governed by political consensus, away from the electoral benefits, so we are facing a consensus government? Or will the next government go towards the political majority, which the coordinating framework called for.
The answer to this question requires an extrapolation of the political arena, especially with the great convergence of votes between the two coalitions that constitute the largest Shiite bloc.
Two concepts have been proposed recently, the concept of “the political majority”, which is the coordinating framework of the adopters of this concept, as well as the concept of “partnership of winners”, which was led and advocated by Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr and his team, and the two concepts are correct, and they can be implemented, but in each one They are both positive and negative.
The coordinating framework in the political majority that it calls for seeks to partner with the components, as it seeks through this majority to win over all the components and involve them, and this thing has the advantages of the big thing, because the next government will be governed by consensus?! Also, these partners will have conditions for partnership and achieving the majority, but the positive thing about the matter is that these personalities are many in the political process, and most of them seek to have a place in this “cooking” which leads to accelerating and forming this majority, and others He seeks to maintain his position in power, so he will make concessions for concessions, armored cars, protections, petty cash, and other privileges provided in the formation of the previous government.
The other concept adopted by the coordination framework went much further, and with the number it owns today, which is approximately (88) deputies, it can move towards forming a government and presenting the framework’s candidate to the national space, especially since its candidates do not have a “veto” on them, meaning that they are accepted internally. From all blocs, regionally and perhaps internationally, but with an analytical look at the position of the coordination framework through consultations and meetings, their quest and their eagerness to build the largest bloc within Parliament, and rebuild the internal system to be an institution capable of advancing the miserable reality experienced by the Iraqi people.
The other side is that the other components, which represent the Iraqi spectrum as a whole, seek to unite their ranks and form a government capable of advancing at least the reality of its voters, its regions, and its cities. Today, these faces are imposed on us because they represent their spectrum and color. The Shiites are their representatives, and the Sunnis also have someone to represent them and gain their trust, not to mention the Kurds who have tightened their control over the political situation and have become a figure in the political equation.
It remains for all the partners to read the political reality well, and strive with great seriousness in order to resolve their intransigent positions towards forming the next government, and strive towards the largest bloc and be the decision-maker in the candidate for prime minister, and move towards building a new Iraq that we see for sure, not hypotheses and theories that burned billions without reality. .
