Baghdad / Obelisk: The coordination framework gave the Kurdish component 10 days to agree on a single candidate for the presidency, coinciding with expected demonstrations calling for the speedy formation of the government.
The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, still rejects all dialogue proposals, but he has not thrown himself out of the political process once and for all.
A member of the coordination framework, Abbas Al-Amiri, said that after the last meeting of the political forces, the framework gave the Kurdish component ten days to agree on one candidate for the presidency.
He added that the process of opening up to the Sadrist movement is not currently included in the adoptions of the coordination framework.
Thus, the Kurdish parties (the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan) will either agree on one candidate, or each of them will go with his candidate and put him in the national space under the dome of Parliament and vote on it.
In both cases, when naming the next president of the republic, the framework candidate, Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani, will be tasked with forming the cabinet in the next government.
But the framework is trying to use the street card again by organizing a demonstration to pressure the political parties to expedite the formation of the new government with full powers.
According to the statement of the Preparatory Committee for the Mass Movement, the demonstration aims to end chaos and lawlessness, hold the spoilers accountable, complete the next year’s budget, reduce the cost of living and the risks of the upcoming economic crisis, and expedite the election of the president of the republic and assign the candidate to head the government.
Observers warn of the return of tensions again to the street between the current framework, especially after the framework's success in resuming the work of Parliament and is currently seeking to move towards forming a government.
Iraq is experiencing the longest crisis of its kind, as differences between the political forces have prevented the formation of a new government since the last elections that took place on October 10, 2021.
While the crisis is moving away from the demonstration arenas after the failure of October 2022, most roads have opened in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
In a tweet by Auf Rahwmy, the Sadrist movement could have cooperated with the Tishreen demonstrators for change.
The obelisk monitored hundreds of tweets acknowledging the failure of the October 2022 demonstrations.
Hussein Daoud wrote: The demonstrations calmed down due to the failure, sabotage and chaos of October.
And Batoul Al-Ali wrote: I live in London and people hope for superpowers, money 2024! Faeq Da'boul is one of the main reasons for the failure of the October Revolution.
The researcher, Adnan Abu Zeid, said in a controversial article published by the Obelisk and reported by several agencies that the October 2022 million was called “Coaster’s Qibta,” instead of a million uprising, and when we predicted this in advance, we were accused of being in charge of the authority.
He added: Those who call themselves the leaders of Tishreen, or its thinkers, tweet and consider their safe and luxurious headquarters, and they are represented on satellite channels all the time, without going to the Al-Watis Square.
Abu Zeid considered that the demonstrators rushed to the square, without a method, and they believed that crossing the Jumhuriya Bridge checkpoint and invading the Green Zone would bring down the regime, and this is shortsightedness and a lack of awareness of the mechanisms of change.
Three years have passed since October, and the organizers of the promised Charin have not been able to organize their ranks or work mechanisms.
He concluded by saying: There are those who call for a new coming October, despite the accumulated failure, as if it were a football league. The revolution is a revolution in its moment. Either it succeeds or fails.
The blogger Ali Hussein said that the instigators of the demonstration, most of them tweeted in their palaces and in the capitals of neighboring countries and Europe, while the field commanders withdrew and left the demonstrators, indicating that these actions are treason.
Hussein Abu Maamel Al-Saadi wrote on Twitter, in the colloquial dialect, that the toughest enemies of Tishreen are people who are outside, looting money and looking at how they are.
