Political science professor Issam Al-Faili confirmed today, Thursday (December 7, 2023), that political stability in current Iraq is “temporary,” among the steps that Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani succeeded in.
Al-Faili said, to “Baghdad Today,” that “the political scene in Iraq is almost a form of immediate stability, especially since the political forces have begun to tend towards calm and tranquility among themselves, but some political houses remain suffering from cases of fragmentation and conflict, and this does not It includes one political house, but rather includes all Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish houses,” indicating that “this conflict will not affect the political situation in general, because they are crises that can be solved and do not affect the stability of Iraq or threaten its security.”
He stated that “the government program, which was adopted by the government in order to absorb the anger of the masses and transform it into a service government, in addition to the issue of employment policy, raising the salaries of retirees and some employees, and the Prime Minister’s failure to enter on a list in the provincial council elections, gave the impression to many parties that the Sudanese Egypt is able to implement its various projects without competing with any political party, and that is why we find there has been governmental and political stability during the past period.”
The political science professor added, "The provincial council elections do not represent a fundamental point of conflict between the political forces. They are completely different from the weight of the House of Representatives elections, through which the government is formed."
He continued, "The absence of the Sadrist movement from the political and electoral scene created a clear rift, and thus many political forces will show their true weight during the next stage."
He pointed out that “announcing the results of the provincial council elections will leave many of the dominant forces, as they have succeeded in using shadow lists, and for this reason we may witness alliances between traditional forces and emerging forces, but in return there will be a presence of civil movements, and areas of influence will be distributed, and some areas may It will witness the participation of no more than (1%), especially in light of the Sadrist boycott.”
Earlier, the head of the State of Law coalition, Nouri al-Maliki, said, “The elections contribute to the formation of a capable state based on the constitution, the law, and respect for the will of the people.”
Al-Maliki stated in a statement received by “Baghdad Today” that, “Through the elections, we reassure everyone and say there is no fear for the political process, but rather we will preserve and develop it with the presence of all loyal people, led by the Iraqi tribes.”
He pointed out, "The tribes of Iraq played a major role in stabilizing the country and facing challenges, and they played the major role that Iraq's history has witnessed since the 1920 Revolution."
He continued, "Through the tribal support councils, the tribes have become a support and support system for the judiciary," noting that "our tribes today have a high degree of awareness and we believe in the importance of their role in building the state."
The head of the State of Law coalition stressed that "correcting the political process and removing the corrupt can only be achieved through the ballot boxes."
Al-Maliki explained, "We strongly opposed the decision to dissolve the provincial councils and demanded that they be reformed and addressed, because they are a basic constitutional pillar of state building."
