    [size=52]Al-Sudani, for the second time, withdraws from the early elections, and the Legal Committee calls for reducing the number of representatives[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad / Tamim Al-Hassan[/size]
    [size=45]Disagreements return once again within the coordination framework due to the issue of early elections, and the reason is the positions of the Sadrist movement. According to the information, there are indications of the “framework” that Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the Sadrist movement, will not accept changes to the electoral commission and law.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, the government had committed itself to holding early elections within a year, although Prime Minister Muhammad al-Sudani seemed to retract that pledge more than once.[/size]
    [size=45]This comes at a time when the Parliament's Legal Committee called for "limited" constitutional amendments in the event that the election law was amended to reduce the number of deputies.[/size]
    [size=45]The Legal Committee denied the existence of any move by the government to amend the law for parliamentary elections so far, while noting that there are differences over the system for counting votes in the local elections law, which seems closer to legislation.[/size]
    [size=45]Informed political sources told (Al-Mada) that "the parties to the coordination framework are divided over holding early elections between those who want the government to continue for a full term and those who fear the wrath of the Sadrists."[/size]
    [size=45]For the first time since 2005, the government is formed without the participation of the Sadrist movement, whose deputies finally resigned from parliament last June.[/size]
    [size=45]And the sources, who asked not to be identified, confirm that "the wing of Nuri al-Maliki, the former prime minister, and some of his supporters prefer the survival of the government for the next 3 years."[/size]
    [size=45]And the latter team, according to the sources: “believes that it is better to let the government work than to enter into crises related to the election law and the new commission.”[/size]
    [size=45]The leader of the movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, had called for early elections, stipulating that the law and the electoral commission not be changed, before his followers got involved in the “green clashes” at the end of last August, after which al-Sadr decided not to interfere in politics again.[/size]
    [size=45]Informed sources confirm that "there are indications that have reached the Shiite forces that Al-Sadr will not be satisfied with changing the election law and the commission, especially with talk about choosing the modified St. Lego as a system for counting votes in the next ballot, which may topple the hopes of the small forces."[/size]
    [size=45]The sources suggest, quoting what is going on in the closed rooms, that "this matter may cause the Sadrist movement to mobilize its supporters again in the street to reject these amendments, and it may also mobilize them in the event that the date of early elections is procrastinated."[/size]
    [size=45]Peanut dip![/size]
    [size=45]Amidst the confusion of the coordinating framework, exciting statements were recently made by Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani for the second time in two weeks, indicating the possibility of the government continuing for more than a year.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sudani said in a meeting that took place on Saturday with political analysts, most of whom are close to the “framework”, speaking about his program: “We have a time limit for each track of one, two or three years. The criterion is how we succeed and make a difference at the level of service and pension.”[/size]
    [size=45]And the prime minister had previously stated in the penultimate press conference that: “Holding early elections is not only a decision of the government, but rather of the parliament.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added, "The government, on its part, and within its pledges, will complete all the requirements for holding elections, and the decision remains for the political forces in accordance with the political agreement."[/size]
    [size=45]Earlier, a leader in one of the Shiite parties revealed to (Al-Mada) that "the next legislative elections will be in August 2025, as 4 calendar years will be completed since the last elections in October 2021."[/size]
    [size=45]The Shiite leader at the time considered that there was only one case in which early elections could be held, which is that "unrest occurs in the street and the October supporters return to demand elections."[/size]
    [size=45]Conflicting information had talked about the existence of two copies of the government program that Al-Sudani presented to parliament last month, regarding the “early elections” item.[/size]
    [size=45]Information was leaked about the cancellation of this paragraph in the program and its replacement with floating talk about supporting the elections and the Commission, without specifying time limits.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sudani had pledged before Parliament that he would prepare for elections within a year of assuming office, and to make an amendment to the law within the first 3 months.[/size]
    [size=45]In turn, the head of the Parliament's Legal Committee, Muhammad Anouz, agrees that holding early elections is linked to the political situation.[/size]
    [size=45]In an interview with (Al-Mada), Anouz denied: "There has been movement so far regarding amending the legislative elections law," while he indicated that "there are workshops and discussions about the provincial councils law, which seems closest to legislation."[/size]
    [size=45]In his first press conference after assuming the position last month, the prime minister seemed enthusiastic about holding local elections, the implementation of which had been delayed for more than 5 years, after I understood his statements as retracting from holding early legislative elections.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sudani told reporters at the time: "We are ready to hold the provincial elections no later than October of next year."[/size]
    [size=45]And the head of the Legal Committee in Parliament talks about “there are different opinions in adopting the modified St. Lego system or other systems regarding local elections,” while Anouz confirms that he “supports the individual election system in the provincial council elections, depending on the nature of the service council’s work and keeping its work away from bargaining and extortion. In addition to reducing the members of the councils between 10 and 12 members.[/size]
    [size=45]And the “modified St. Lego” had been reversed in the last elections (Legislative 2021) in favor of the multiple constituency law.[/size]
    [size=45]This system depends on dividing the votes of the winners by 1.9, which leads to crushing the results of the small powers that aspire to win.[/size]
    [size=45]Some opinions within the coordination framework, according to information reached by Al-Mada, supported that the local elections for each governorate be one constituency.[/size]
    [size=45]As for the legislative elections, the head of the Legal Committee confirms that he has put forward since 2018: “proposals that Iraq be a single constituency because the nature of the council’s work is political and the parties have to compete depending on political programs.”[/size]
    [size=45]Anouz also called for “the amendment of the legislative elections law to coincide with constitutional amendments in non-controversial issues, such as reducing the number of deputies, and for the winning bloc in the elections to be the one that forms the government, and if it fails during the constitutional period to form the government, it moves to the second winning bloc, and the governor is elected directly from the public and not through the provincial councils ».[/size]
