    Newspaper.. Deep Differences Within The Framework Due To The Amendment Of The Election Law
    On January 24, 2023
    [rtl]The Independent/- There are no indications that the Iraqi government is going to send a new version of the election law to parliament, although the ministerial program of the government of Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, agreed upon by the political blocs, provided for amending the parliamentary elections law within three months and holding early elections within a year.[/rtl]
    [rtl]The early elections file is considered one of the most prominent demands of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, and Al-Sudanese pledged it in his government program, which Parliament voted on on October 27, 2022.[/rtl]
    [rtl]Disagreements within the “State Administration” coalition
    Various Iraqi political sources reveal, to the Qatari newspaper “Al-Araby Al-Jadeed” and its independent affiliate, that there are deep differences regarding the amendment of the House of Representatives elections law between the blocs and allied parties within the “State Administration” coalition, which is the political formation that includes “The Coordination Framework”, “Sovereignty”, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, which resulted in the agreement to form the current government headed by Al-Sudani.[/rtl]

    [rtl]These differences delay the sending of this law by the government to Parliament for its enactment.[/rtl]
    [rtl]Deputy for “State of Law”: there is more than one proposal to amend the law, and there is no agreement in this regard[/rtl]
    [rtl]The representative of the “State of Law” coalition, Thaer Makhaif al-Jubouri, acknowledged, in an interview with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, the existence of what he described as “continuous disagreements between the political forces within the State Administration Coalition, and even between the forces of the coordination framework regarding the form of the upcoming parliamentary elections law.”[/rtl]
    [rtl]He added, "There is more than one proposal to amend the law, and there is no agreement in this regard, despite the dialogues and negotiations in this regard."[/rtl]
    [rtl]Al-Jubouri indicated that “there are parties that want to keep the current law unchanged, and according to the multiple districts,” continuing that “there are those who want to return to the old law (St. Lego), and there are those who want to make one province only two districts, and other proposals that are still under negotiation.” And dialogue,” noting that “there are unannounced meetings in this regard between the leaders of the political forces.”[/rtl]
    [rtl]And “St. Lego” is a mathematical method in distributing the votes of the voters to the participating electoral lists, so the votes are divided by 1.3 upwards, then the small lists get more chances to win parliamentary seats. The higher the electoral divide is to 1.6 or more, the chances of these lists decrease and the seats for large coalitions increase.[/rtl]
    [rtl]This method is "unbalanced," as some believe that it enables the traditional parties that have positions in the state and political money to easily reach the provincial councils.[/rtl]
    [rtl]Al-Jubouri emphasized that “the government's failure to send the amendment to the House of Representatives election law to Parliament is due to the lack of political consensus on the form of the law. The government wants to agree on this point in order to formulate the law accordingly and send it to Parliament for the purpose of its legislation.”[/rtl]
    [rtl]He pointed out that “there are those who want to fix the date of early elections within the law, so that early elections are a binding matter for the Sudanese government, and this matter is also subject to a dispute between the blocs and parties within the State Administration Coalition.”[/rtl]

    [rtl]Doubts about the desire to hold early elections
    In the same context, the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Mahdi Abdul Karim, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that “the agreement between the blocs and parties on amending the House of Representatives elections law needs more time, as this law is very important for all parties.” The political parties, and everyone wants to detail the law according to his interest, and that is why there are deep disagreements about this amendment,” ruling out that an agreement would be reached within three months.[/rtl]

    [rtl]Abdul Karim: There are political parties that do not want to hold early parliamentary elections[/rtl]
    [rtl]And Abdul-Karim indicated that "the political parties do not want to bypass the Sadrist movement in the issue of amending the election law, and there is an effort to communicate with the leaders of the movement to find out their opinion on this amendment, but The Sadrists still refuse any dialogue and negotiation in any political or electoral file.” He added, “We believe that the political agreement on amending the election law needs more time, and the Sudanese government cannot send the amended law until after the political agreement on this amendment.”[/rtl]
    [rtl]And he believed that "there are political parties that do not originally want to hold any early parliamentary elections, but rather want the Sudanese government to continue with a full mandate, and this matter is controversial and may lead to a political crisis."[/rtl]
    [rtl]He refused to return to the old law.
    As for independent MP Hadi al-Salami, he explained that “independent MPs have not yet participated in any dialogue or negotiation regarding amending the House of Representatives elections law, and there are differences between the influential blocs and parties regarding the form of the law. ”[/rtl]

    [rtl]In an interview with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Al-Salami stated that “independent representatives will have a position and a word regarding amending the election law if it is submitted by the Iraqi government to parliament,” adding: “We will not allow a return to the old law, which some parties want in order to monopolize the seats.” parliamentarians and prevent the access of independent deputies.[/rtl]
    [rtl]He expected that the amendment of the election law would take “a long time before it is sent by the government, exceeding three months, and when it reaches parliament, it will take many months to agree on it.” This law is the one that will determine the fate of the upcoming electoral process, and every political party wants to detail it according to its interests.”[/rtl]
    [rtl]Al-Sharifi: The government has not yet really worked on the amendment[/rtl]
    [rtl]On the other hand, political analyst Ahmed Al-Sharifi said, in a telephone conversation with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, that “the government's failure to send the amendment to the election law to parliament confirms the existence of deep political differences over this amendment , and according to information, the government has not yet acted in a comprehensive manner.” Real on this amendment, it is waiting for political consensus in its form.[/rtl]
    [rtl]And Al-Sharifi indicated that “the amendment of the election law, in the manner opposed by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or the October Forces (the civil forces emanating from the demonstrations), that is, by abolishing the multiple constituencies, may prompt supporters of those parties to take to the streets again to refuse to return to the previous electoral law, especially since the multiple constituencies were one of the most prominent conditions for the Sadrists and civilians to hold the last early elections.[/rtl]
    [rtl]He added, "Al-Sudanese does not want any political problems with the Sadrists or the October forces, and that is why he is working cautiously on the issue of amending the law, but the final decision remains in the hands of the political forces that Currently control Parliament, as they are the ones who will legislate this law after it was sent by the government.[/rtl]
    [rtl]In the previous elections, which were held on October 10, 2021, Iraq relied on an election law that divided the provinces into multiple electoral districts, in response to popular pressures that were represented by the protest movement that was calling for early parliamentary elections, the replacement of the Electoral Commission that had already been changed, and the vote On a new election law, with the support of the Sadrist movement.[/rtl]
    [rtl]However, former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said in recent statements that he is with a return to the previous election law, which he defined as the “St. Lego Elections Law.”[/rtl]
