    [size=52]After Al-Sadr's movement.. the Democrat is out of the elections and Al-Halbousi is trying his last chances[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad/ Tamim Al-Hassan[/size]
    [size=45]It seems that internal and American efforts have failed to dissuade the Kurdistan Democratic Party from its decision to boycott the elections in the Kurdistan region. This is the first time after 2003 that the party that runs power in the region will be absent from the elections, as the submission of lists was closed and the name “Kurdistan Democratic Party” did not appear.[/size]
    [size=45]The Election Commission extended the time for receiving nominations for the regional parliament elections by several hours, while it appeared as if it was waiting for the party’s decision to withdraw.[/size]
    [size=45]Jumana Ghalai, spokeswoman for the Commission, announced yesterday that the Kurdistan Democratic Party did not “submit its list of candidates for the elections in any district.”[/size]
    [size=45]Yesterday, the stage of receiving lists of candidates for coalitions, political parties, and nominated individuals ended, according to statements by the Commission.[/size]
    [size=45]Two coalitions and 10 parties will participate in the elections, in addition to 54 individual candidates, according to Election Commission figures.[/size]
    [size=45]The Commission had announced on Sunday, extending the time for submitting candidates for the Kurdistan Parliament elections to 12:00 midnight.[/size]
    [size=45]At the same time, the registration official at the Commission’s office in Erbil, Farhad Asaad, confirmed that the Kurdistan Democratic Party has not yet visited the Commission to register to participate in the Kurdistan Parliament elections.[/size]
    [size=45]Asaad said in a press conference on Sunday, “Out of a total of 18 political parties, six parties formed two alliances, the Sardam Alliance and the Kurdistan Region Alliance,” and added: “We completed the work of 18 independent candidates out of 65.”[/size]
    [size=45]According to the registration official, 8 political parties expressed their willingness to participate in the Kurdistan Parliament elections, namely: the New Generation, the People’s Front, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, the National Alliance, the Change Movement, the Islamic Movement, and the Kurdistan Islamic League.[/size]
    [size=45]Internal efforts had tried to bring the Democratic Party back from the boycott decision, as Muhammad Al-Sudani, the Prime Minister, met on the night of the close of receiving nominations with the President of the Federal Court, Jassem Al-Amiri.[/size]
    [size=45]Ammar al-Hakim, the prominent leader in the coordination framework, earlier called on the Kurdistan Democratic Party to review its decision to boycott.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, Elena Romanowski, the American ambassador to Iraq, mediated between Baghdad and Erbil, and conducted rounds between officials in the region and the federal government.[/size]
    [size=45]The ambassador said, following a meeting with Masoud Barzani, leader of the Democratic Party, that she encouraged the party to work with the Kurdish parties and Baghdad to ensure that fair elections are held soon.[/size]
    [size=45]In his meeting with Romanowski, Barzani stressed that it is not permissible to hold Kurdistan Parliament elections “without the participation of the components.” He said that Iraq has long followed a policy of “weakening the Kurdistan region.”[/size]
    [size=45]A member of the party's political bureau and the official of its organizational office in Dohuk, Sarbast Lazkin, said on Sunday that the position of the Kurdistan Democratic Party is "steadfast and has not changed."[/size]
    [size=45]The Kurdistan Democratic Party announced, in mid-March, “not to participate in elections held in violation of the law and the constitution and under the umbrella of an imposed electoral system.”[/size]
    [size=45]The party attributed its decision to its refusal to “legitimize an unconstitutional and undemocratic election,” criticizing what it described as “constitutional violations practiced by the Federal Court against the Kurdistan Region and its constitutional institutions in general.”[/size]
    [size=45]The regional presidency announced in early March that elections in Kurdistan would be held on June 10, after they were repeatedly postponed as a result of political differences between the two main parties in the region and disagreements with Baghdad.[/size]
    [size=45]Season of transformations[/size]
    [size=45]The decision to boycott the Democratic Party and its hint of withdrawal from the political process came at a time when important transformations were taking place among the party’s former partners, the Sadrist movement, and the Taqaddam Party led by Muhammad al-Halbousi.[/size]
    [size=45]Observers expect that the Democratic Party's latest position will prompt the revival of the tripartite alliance that existed between these parties after the 2021 elections.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Halbousi may approach a decision similar to the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, and the Democratic Party, if he does not succeed in securing the position of Speaker of Parliament for his party.[/size]
    [size=45]Yesterday, the Federal Supreme Court rejected the lawsuit to cancel the session to elect the Speaker of Parliament, which the political forces had hoped would be a lifeline to get out of the crisis in choosing the Speaker of Parliament.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Halbousi's party, whose membership was canceled by the Federal Court before last year's local elections on charges of fraud, filed an appeal against the session to select the Speaker of Parliament.[/size]
    [size=45]The session had shown the lead of one candidate, Shaalan Al-Karim, over the rest of the competitors, which caused a split within the coordination framework, which was supporting different candidates.[/size]
    [size=45]After a crisis that lasted for days within the Shiite alliance, due to Al-Karim, who was accused of “Baathism” and promoting “ISIS,” the solution was to cancel the last session to present alternatives.[/size]
    [size=45]The official agency reported that the Federal Court dismissed the lawsuit “for lack of jurisdiction.”[/size]
    [size=45]Until now, the Taqaddam Party insists on its only candidate (Shaalan Al-Karim) for the presidency of Parliament, while his ouster by recommendation, in an expected session after the upcoming Eid holiday, may be the beginning of Al-Halbousi’s departure from the political process.[/size]
    [size=45]It is likely that Al-Halbousi's project may meet with Al-Sadr, whose public appearance has increased in recent weeks, and caused widespread controversy after his meeting with the supreme authority, Ali Al-Sistani, and expectations of the movement's participation in the upcoming elections.[/size]
