Government technocrats: Changing faces or change the rules?
D.valh Hamrani *
that the political rules of the game so far, which adopted the appointment of ministers and other senior officials on the basis of partisan / sectarian, loyal to one or another of the groups political, provided anopportunity to take over the ministries and government institutions , including the sensitive and strategic nature and Iraq representations abroad, figures are not eligible, these rules and led to government mismanagement and corruption. Iraq occupies today in accordance with the international ranking of corruption ranked 175 among 182 countries. As those political led to sagging state apparatus , there are seven million people from the staff of the total population of them about 30 million people.
No different one that those rules were formed spontaneously, and was inconsistent much of it with theprovisions of the Iraqi Constitution, and the insistence of some currents it lies in it ensures the political prestige and the future of its presence on the political scene. It is without a doubt that those rules have played for a while, and approved by the clearer the political process and in the light of instability, a positive role in maintaining a sense of balance. But history is a constant in a dynamic movement, against the backdrop of economic and social developments , social consciousness and awareness of the results of the previous stages and the openness of the future prospects of the country and therefore can not serve as the rules ofyesterday 's worn for the future. The majority of the country 's population understood the Bhsha daily and through the life circumstances of the futility of those rules and even the threat to the country 's future and its existence and security, as well as it is unable to form a government mechanism capable of confronting thechallenges facing the Iraqi state.
The performance of ministries that have on those rules was a failure and frustrating , as if Iraq is empty of intellectual and practical energies, while thousands of highly qualified owners who forced them to immigration policy and tyrants seized power residing abroad. And the implications of the failure of these ministries represent one of the many manifestations of failing to terrorist acts foil in the capital organized by the killers members Daash offender, also failed to take preventive measures to prevent the occurrence of bloody clashes in Basra and other cities Alarac.oha which is responsible for the weakness of foreign policy and the low level interaction with the international alliance and Russia to combat terrorist Daash, not required for displaced Iraqis defense nor residents offer abroad.
some powers exploited the legal / constitutional status to their advantage arbitrarily, and employed to control the decision in the legislative and executive institutions: the National Council and the government, and singled out the power to appoint their representatives there. The past period has demonstrated sagging ministries sensitive institutions and personalities is not qualified , we see a lawyer working in the field of oil and barber Ambassador of the State of Iraq and the renovator Computers in Education Foundation and veterinary deputy head of a diplomatic mission ... (with apologies to the owners of the professions mentioned because talking isnot wanting to be underestimated and deserved their owners ), we have been pushing them for those positions is not a professional specifications, but of kinship and party affiliations and bribes corner. Has it all to Shell 's performance state and sabotage the institutions and foster a spirit of discontent and protest among the broad masses, coming out in the thousands to demand real change.
Required change, change that responds with the aspirations of Aljmahiro should eliminate the basic rules upon which the political process so far, and create an atmosphere to prevent monopoly by certain currents groups, and emerge from the national authority that represents all segments of Iraqi society, and hold official office no affiliations but professional abilities employed by sustainable development upward trend in all areas.
the rules of the political game in place so far have led to Iraq today stands on the brink of entering theconflict between the Shiite currents , which controls the power, in a heated confrontation in order to impose its own agenda of each party, and this will result in a return to the starting point and turn away from the fight against the danger threatening the president of Iraq any Daash. To overcome it is only possible to re -examine the rules of the political process and the search for new tools, and reach the sons of the Sunni and Shiite sects to agree who would be deprived of Islamic extremism and the state from bases in some areas.The victory over Daash lies in launching the government apparatus as a whole real war and not a formal government corruption and crime.
