Baghdad - conscious - Nassar al-Hajj
The Iraqi political scene took a new turn after the two initiatives launched by the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, on the one hand, and the coordination framework, on the other. Opinions differed regarding the state of blockage in the political process after postponing the selection of the President of the Republic due to the lack of a quorum in the House of Representatives.
In light of these new changes, Member of Parliament, Representative Ahmed Al-Rubaie, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): “Al-Sayed’s initiative will be a key to a solution, and there is a great possibility that this will be a good opportunity to bring views closer if the coordinating framework forces succeed in gaining cordiality and coordination with the parties. The other within the tripartite alliance, such as sovereignty and the Kurdistan Democratic Party, and as a result this will be a great motive and justification for Muqtada al-Sadr to be compatible with the forces of the framework, and as a result, everyone may agree to form the government, and this is a great and good opportunity and a good initiative in all cases.
For her part, Head of the New Generation Bloc, MP Sarwa Abdul Wahed, confirmed to the Iraqi News Agency (INA) that "Mr. Al-Sadr's initiative is good and I hope that the Coordination Framework bloc will respond to it, pointing out that" Mr. Al-Sadr is easy for him to go to the opposition, as he is strong inside and outside the government. And the majority is satisfied."
In turn, writer and political analyst Hamza Mustafa said, "The gap is still wide between what the coordination framework wants, especially at the level of the largest bloc, and what the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, wants at the level of the National Majority Alliance," noting that "the framework put forward several issues that may be An entry point for discussion, and it could be a way out to deal with the crisis; The largest Shiite bloc, and here the dispute is clear in this context."
He added, "Mr. Al-Sadr announced in his tweet that he owns more than a third and that his alliance is based on the majority, including the largest bloc, while the framework sees that the largest bloc should be from the largest social component, and this is of course a controversial issue that will remain throughout this month between the two parties, including It is waiting for the mediation of other forces from other Sunni and Kurdish houses in order to reach a rapprochement between the two blocs or the two Shiite parties in order to reach a compromise in this crisis. But if each party entrenched itself, I mean, for example, if the alliance of sovereignty and the Kurdistan Democratic Party remained as an alliance with Mr. Sadr, things will remain. On this dispute, as well as the National Union, and the resolve that also remained with the coordinating framework, the dispute will remain, because here it is not between the two alliances, but between two parties from among one house, namely the framework and the current, and therefore a way out must be found for this relationship between them before there is talk about a disabled third or a third guarantor. or a majority or a minority.
For his part, academic and political analyst Dr. Kovind Yarwan told the Iraqi News Agency (INA) that he "does not believe that the initiative put forward by the coordination framework constitutes a way out to deal with Mr. Al-Sadr's tweet, because the distance between the two parties is still far," noting that "the framework initiative emphasized the right of the component." The largest did not give priority to a program or plans to reform and save the country, not even plans to distribute and guarantee sites and positions."
He added, "Maybe the coordinating framework will succeed in persuading Mr. Sadr's partners in the tripartite alliance to enter into the formation of the government by supporting the Kurdistan Democratic Party's candidate for the presidency, as well as offering more sovereign positions to the Sovereignty Alliance, and in this case the current will be alone in the opposition."
He pointed out that "the joint statement of sovereignty and democracy closed the door to the framework for trying to present attractive offers for sovereignty and democracy," stressing that "the tripartite alliance has proven its cohesion, and the framework has not abandoned after this confrontation, and other constitutional options remain, including the dissolution of Parliament, which is not favored by any party."
The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, had given the "blocking third" the opportunity to form a national majority government.
Al-Sadr said in a tweet to him on Twitter, which was followed by the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "It is a blessing that God has bestowed upon me... that he enabled me to be the largest winning bloc in the elections, but rather an unprecedented victory... then we made the largest Shiite bloc or alliance." Then who should be the first to succeed in forming the largest national bloc (save a homeland) and nominating a prime minister acceptable to all, and I will not dispense with that.”
He added that "those alliances bothered a lot, so they obstructed and are still obstructing," noting that "in order for Iraq not to remain without a government and to deteriorate the security, economic, service and other conditions, I give (the blocking third) an opportunity to negotiate with all the blocs without exception to form a national majority government without The Sadrist Mass, from the first day of the blessed month of Ramadan to the ninth of the holy month of Shawwal.
Mr. Al-Sadr called on the "Sadr bloc not to interfere in this, either positively or negatively," explaining that "by this, I have cleared my responsibility before everyone."
The coordination framework announced its vision to address the political blockage.
The framework stated in a statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "based on the legitimate, national and moral responsibility entrusted to it, the coordination framework is still ready for serious and constructive dialogue with all blocs and independents to get out of the state of political blockage, and the framework forces also call on all loyal people to take responsibility and not Insisting on the formula of breaking wills, which would complicate the scene without success, and the only one affected by it is the Iraqi people."
He added, "The framework announces its vision to address the political blockage, which is based on several foundations that we list below. The framework will present its details in its dialogues with political forces, and summarize them as follows:
1. Commitment to the constitutional terms and registration of the bloc with the largest number of parties to ensure the right of the component and the completion of the national entitlement for the other components of the three presidencies, within a unified vision in which the framework and its allies, the Sadrist bloc and its allies participate.
2. After announcing the most numerous bloc, the candidate for the position of prime minister is agreed upon according to the required conditions and criteria such as competence, integrity and independence, and that will be through a joint committee of the coordination framework and the Sadrist bloc.
3. Agreeing on the government program within a specific time limit to be agreed upon. Those who wish from the winning blocs that adhere to the program participate in managing its implementation. Those qualified to run the country are nominated, provided that they are characterized by competence, integrity and competence.
4. The opposition within the House of Representatives shall monitor the government and hold it accountable for its mistakes and transgressions. The opposition is empowered to carry out its work correctly and is protected in accordance with the law.
He continued: "We reiterate our call to our brothers who rejected our repeated calls for cooperation in righteousness and piety, and we note them to place the interests of the nation and citizens above partisan and factional interests."
