    Barham Saleh told Asharq Al-Awsat: be patient until the return of Talabani before talking about his replacement

    15-05-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Erbil: Shirzad Shikhani - Baghdad: Al-Sharq Al-Awsat
    Dr. Barham Salih, Deputy Secretary General of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the only candidate for the position of president of the republic after President patient Jalal Talabani, in his comment on the statements that talked about his nomination «that President Talabani is the President of the Republic of Iraq, and is currently undergoing treatment from the health status of the pain it, and wait for his return safe and sound, God willing, therefore, to talk about his replacement is inappropriate and ineffective, and that the prestige and consideration of political and historical President Talabani require that the patient until the completion of treatment and return to the homeland, not to create from raising these issues a new crisis Iraq's indispensable. This review of the benefit came in contact with his Al-Sharq al-Awsat, which is alone in its issue dated yesterday published details of ongoing moves on the local and regional levels towards filling the presidency of the Republic, and the issuance of assurances from within the leadership of the National Union candidacy for the position of successor to Talabani.
    At the time entered the Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr on-line publication of a statement it supported the request of the presidency of the prosecution of the Iraqi Council of Representatives searching in legal proceedings to fill the presidency, said Chairman of the Legal House of Representatives Khaled Huani told «Middle East» that «the cases cited by the prosecutor in his application populates the job does not fit with reality and the legal text, because Article 72, which was based upon the prosecution states (vacant) position and not (absence), and freedom touched the text of the Constitution in that article and select the resignation, death or a verdict criminal, These cases are not available on President Talabani, and therefore it falls under the condition (absence) In such cases, the Vice-President of the Republic Bmqamh until his return. Asked about any specific period or timeframe for this absence, is it permissible to continue the case of absence forever, said Chairman of the Legal Committee «There is no time limit or a specified period in the Presidency of the Republic Act specifies a period of absence. The Huani «that the Legal Committee, which is chaired refused this request as a request is unconstitutional and illegal, and sent its response to the demand assigned to it to the Presidency of the Council of Representatives accompanied by emphasizing that there is no constitutional text or substance in the law of a prosecutor gives the chief prosecutor the authority to provide such a request, and these things are the exclusive powers of the House of Representatives and not the presidency of the prosecution.
    Thus, the issue of filling the position Talabani became a draw postponement again while recovering, or what he can to resolve his position is precisely from this thread on whether to resign and devote the rest, or the issuance of a medical report documented his medical confirms his inability to exercise of his career. The Shiite leader Moqtada al-Sadr, who tied for the past year a solid relationship with the Kurdistan Alliance during the period of the agreement Erbil quartet which demanded the withdrawal of confidence in Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, has supported the request made by the prosecution on the appointment of a new president of the Republic. Sadr said in response to a question sent him on this matter «to thank my support to the Iraqi public prosecutor, praying to the Almighty to make that beginning to activate and the independence of the prosecution. He added: «the most on his hands to complete this project on the appointment of the President of the Republic is unreasonable in our time Iraq without a president.
    And about whether a request chest This can be established for a new crisis between the Sadrists and the Kurdistan Alliance, said a member of parliament from the Sadrist movement and a member of the legal committee in parliament told «Middle East» that «it is not even called for by al-Sadr is that support is The prosecution of the roles were missing during the last period. He added that «the position of President of the Republic has been organized by the Law of Law No. 8 for the year 2012 and therefore it is not entitled under this Act for the prosecution to intervene in the position of President of the Republic as the law of the prosecution itself does not entitle him to do that, but the prosecution wanted to remind Parliament such things and including the fact that the country needs to the President of the Republic ». Kanani said that «al-Sadr wanted to be a comprehensive position of the prosecution at the level of other important issues and therefore it does not carry a political dimension at all. And on the legal status of the presidency of the Republic said Kanani said that «the law on the position of President of the Republic explained that unequivocally, but we need to practical issues is the most important medical report documented confirm whether the president in case of default or not and that, if confirmed, the position becomes empty Within 15 days of the vacancy announce the nominations and completed and a new president is elected.

    Speculation Mounts in Iraq
    Over Maliki’s Health

    By: Ali Abel Sadah for Al-Monitor Iraq Pulse Posted on May 14.

    On May 10, 2013, conflicting news reports about Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki suffering from a health problem were rampant in Baghdad, while speculation about what kind differed.


    Summary :
    Across the Iraqi media, speculation has been rife about the current health of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, with conflicting reports from government and opposition sources.
    Original Title:
    Maliki’s Mysterious Malaise Prompts Conflicting Speculations
    Author: Ali Abel Sadah
    Translated by: Steffi Chakti

    Categories :Originals Iraq


    On that day, the Islamic Supreme Council was holding a memorial service on the anniversary of the martyrdom of its former leader, the late Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim. Maliki was supposed to attend the event and deliver a speech.

    Hakim was a Shiite leader who stood out in 2003 as one of the most prominent leaders in the opposition to Saddam Hussein’s regime. In 2004, as he emerged from the gold-domed shrine of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Taleb in Najaf, where he was delivering a speech before his supporters, a massive car bomb exploded.

    Iraqi leaders made a point of attending the memorial ceremony and delivering emotive speeches to commemorate Hakim. Maliki, however, was absent because of illness. He sent Ali al-Adib, minister of education and prominent leading member of the Dawa Party on his behalf.

    At the podium during the ceremony, which was attended by Al-Monitor, Adib delivered a speech attacking the electoral law, dubbed Saint Lego, saying that “it does not achieve compatibility between blocs.”

    The electoral system that was amended last year by the Iraqi parliament has helped minor blocs to achieve electoral gains. The Supreme Council, in addition, benefited from this system during the last provincial elections of April 2013.

    Adib warned that “psychological division still exists in Iraq, and political division might follow if dialogue fails. The country is being torn apart and politicians have not yet found a way to adopt the mechanisms of partnership."

    Adib, however, withheld details about the nature of Maliki’s health problem and as a result, speculation was rife.

    Haidar al-Ibadi, a leading Shiite figure in the Dawa Party, revealed to Al-Monitor, however, that “Maliki has a cold; there is nothing to worry about.”

    Such a statement did not stop the influx of rumors on social media websites, which went to greater lengths in speculating on the status of Maliki’s health.

    Disparity has even hit official sources. A close source to Maliki was interviewed by Al-Monitor and reported as saying that “the prime minister is tired and needs to rest.” The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, reiterated that there was “nothing to worry about.”

    Last month, according to Sadik al-Rikabi, a close adviser to Maliki, the latter was transferred to the intensive care unit in the City of Medicine medical complex in Baghdad — one of the biggest hospitals in Iraq.

    Reports spread that Maliki had suffered from a heart problem, the effects of which had been aggravated of late, because of the poor results in the most recent elections. Maliki lost 90 seats in provincial councils, compared with the results of the 2009 elections.

    Yet, the news was trending on social media websites. On Facebook, for example, an unofficial page for Maliki managed by his supporters posted a comment that read: “Maliki gets sick but does not die, just like Iraq.”

    On the websites of Iraqi journalists and activists, Maliki’s condition was a hot topic of conversation. Some claimed that he was suffering from a heart problem and that his condition was at stake, while others diagnosed him with hyperglycemia, affirming that his office expeditiously sent for a doctor from the UK.

    Maliki and his political and technical teams are highly discreet with Iraqi journalists. The prime minister’s office does not talk about any subjects pertaining to Maliki’s condition. Even the administrative structure and the number of advisers are still a mystery. Observers believe that this state of isolation intensifies the interpretations and gives credibility to rumors.

    On Feb. 24, 2008, Maliki went to London to undergo medical tests that were described by the Council of Ministers’ official media release as “routine checkups.” At the time, Iraqi doctors advised Maliki to go to London to undergo his medical tests and to rest assured about the results that had already been detected and treated in Baghdad. Yet, when it comes to Maliki’s medical condition, information ranges between stroke, cardiomyopathy and hyperglycemia.

    With conflicting news about Maliki’s health and the medical treatment of President Jalal Talabani, concerns are snowballing about the future of a political process that is already experiencing acute crises.

    If doubts over Maliki’s health persist, according to Article 78 of Section 3 of the Iraqi Constitution: “The President of the Republic shall take up the office of the Prime Minister in the event the post becomes vacant for any reason whatsoever." If this occurs, "The President must designate another nominee to form the cabinet within a period not to exceed 15 days in accordance with the provisions of Article 73 of this Constitution.”

    This article, however, cannot be carried out since Talabani [himself] is receiving medical treatment, the details of which are as yet unclear. Additionally, the constitution does not tackle the issue of both the president and prime minister being absent.

    Ali Abel Sadah is a Baghdad-based writer for both Iraqi and Arab media. He has been a managing editor for local newspapers as well as a political and cultural reporter for more than 10 years.

    Allawi said that "al-Maliki told us that he listens to demonstrators and احتوائهم, but he described them as terrorists and the Baathists, but even he attacked Yards demonstrators armed."
    Allawi expressed his belief that the demonstrations will not stop "as long as al-Maliki in power." "The government should resign for the purpose of forming government Mrhqh can oversee early elections without allowing its members to participate in these elections," he said, adding that "the second track of the solution is to return to the Erbil and achieve immediate partnership."
    Allawi believes strongly that Iran has objected to his accession to the premiership again. He said that "Iran is determined to confiscate decision to Iraq's political," he said, adding that he had visited Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the year 2010 during the negotiations to form a government, and "he told me Assad literally: Iran will not allow you to be the Prime Minister of Iraq; and if you want this you have to go to Tehran and talk with officials there. "
    Allawi said "absolutely refused to go to Iran, because I do not want to get a position in Iraq give me him again."
    The former prime minister denied that his allies in the Iraqi List, objected to his accession to the post of President of the Republic during the negotiations to form a government in 2010. "All the leaders of Iraq, they told me they do not mind Tsenma this position, but I refused because this would raise our brothers the Kurds."
    In answering the question of the Monitor on reports that Maliki suggested granting Allawi presidency of the Republic, and the powers of chief of staff of the armed forces, he replied, Allawi said, "When we went to Arbil to sign the agreement under the auspices of U.S. to form a government led by al-Maliki, we have worked to accomplish true partnership runs the country .

    The leader of the Iraqi List, exclaimed, "meaning this partnership when he accused Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi with terrorism, and Finance Minister Rafie al-Issawi prosecuted and exposed thousands of supporters of the Iraqi List, the de-Baathification or languishing in prison on baseless charges."

    Allawi said, "I told them that even if you decide to invasion, ye need pruning Iraqi institutions and preserve them," he said, adding "they disbanded the army and allowed the de-Baathification procedures."

    Iraqi Kurds Reportedly Fighting
    Among Jihadists in Syria

    By: Abdel Hamid Zebari for Al-Monitor Iraq Pulse Posted on May 14.

    In the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, the debate continues in the Kurdish press over the involvement of young Kurds in the Syrian revolution. This comes four months after the announcement of the death of a young Kurdish man — a resident of Sulaimaniyah, a city located in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq — in Aleppo. The press is currently reporting that Syrian Kurdish parties captured a number of Kurdish youths after they went there to wage jihad.

    Summary :
    Iraqi Kurdish youth have reportedly been fighting alongside jihadists in Syria.

    Iraqi Kurds fight in the ranks of jihadists in Syria
    Author: Abdel Hamid Zebari
    First Published: May 14, 2013
    Translated by: Joelle El-Khoury

    Categories :Originals Iraq Security Syria


    In February, the Kurdish newspapers published news of the death of a young Iraqi Kurdish man studying pharmacology at an Indian university who left his studies and went to Syria to assist fighters against the Syrian regime. His name was Howkar Muhammed Kurdi. According to the blog of foreigners in the Syrian revolution, he was “a 25-year-old martyr from Sulaimaniyah in Iraq and a student of pharmacology at the Rajiv Gandhi University. He decided to abandon his studies, go to Syria to join the ranks of his brethren and provide them with medical assistance. He was martyred in a raid on Aleppo on Feb. 12 [2013].”

    More than three months after this incident, the official website of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), an armed Syrian Kurdish party, said that in the village of Ain al-Abd near the Syrian-Turkish border, they had captured five militants from Jabhat al-Nusra, including three Kurds from the city of Kirkuk.

    It said that 11 individuals were killed in clashes in the village and five members from Jabhat al-Nusra were captured, one of which being a Saudi national, another European and the other three Kurdish Sorani from the city of Kirkuk.

    The PYD is a Syrian Kurdish leftist opposition party that follows a similar ideology to the anti-Turkey Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). The PKK is led by Abdullah Ocalan, who is currently serving a life sentence in a Turkish prison.

    Jabhat al-Nusra is considered a jihadist group. It is a Salafist jihadist organization formed in late 2011 during the Syrian conflict. Its capabilities quickly grew, making it a leading revolutionary and strong force against the army of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in a matter of months. This is due to the fighting experience and training of its members. The group has claimed responsibility for several suicide attacks in Aleppo and Damascus.

    Islamist parties in Iraqi Kurdistan avoid delving into this topic or saying that young Kurds have gone to Syria for jihad. However, their close associates deny that the issue is a systematic problem.

    A set of Islamist parties currently exists in the Kurdistan Region, the most active of which is probably the Kurdistan Islamic Union, which was founded in 1994. A moderate party, it holds six out of 111 seats in the Kurdish parliament. It opposes the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) alongside the Islamic Group in Kurdistan, which was founded in 2001, and has four seats in parliament. The group is led by Ali Bapir, who was arrested by US forces on charges of terrorism after the fall of the former Iraqi regime.

    Sheikh Ali Bapir was arrested by US forces on July 10, 2003, while on his way to the hotel Ishtar in the Dukan summer resort in an ambush near the village. He was arrested with three other leaders of the group and ten of his bodyguards. They were immediately moved by three helicopters to Mosul, then to a prison at Baghdad airport.

    Bapir spent 22 months in detention, and his companions served various sentences ranging between several days and weeks, and 11 months.

    The Islamic Movement of Kurdistan also has a presence in the Kurdistan Region. It was founded in 1987, has two seats in Kurdistan’s parliament and a minister in the KRG.

    In a statement to Al-Monitor, the Islamic researcher Mohammed Baziani, head of the al-Huda Center for Strategic Studies, founded in 1998, said that there is a number of young Kurds in the ranks of the Syrian opposition. He stressed that their participation is based on defending the rights of the oppressed after the Syrian uprising has continued for so long.

    He added, “The Kurds’ suffering throughout history is the main reason behind the participation of the youth in this war. They understand the suffering of the Syrian people as a result of the injustice against them.”

    Nevertheless, he minimized the importance of their participation, and added, “According to our information, there is a small percentage of youth who embrace jihadist thinking and who would like to wage jihad against the Syrian regime; they can be counted on the fingers of one hand.”

    He also indicated that the Kurds in Kirkuk are influenced by Salafist and jihadist groups, which are active there. This is in addition to their proximity to Arab Sunni areas, where the Naqshbandi group is active.

    It should be noted that the Naqshbandi group, or the Army of the Men of the Naqshbandi Order, is a group that was announced after 2003, and appointed Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, vice president of the former regime, as its emir. This group is believed to be linked to armed operations taking place in some of the disputed areas between the central government in Baghdad and the KRG in Erbil. The group is active in the provinces of Kirkuk, Diyala and Saladin.

    Yassin Aziz, a political analyst interested in Islamic groups and a former leader of the Islamic movement of Kurdistan, stressed the need for Kurdish leaders in the Kurdistan Region to give greater attention to the issue of young Kurds from Iraq going to wage jihad in Syria.

    He told Al-Monitor, “We need to know that there are different ideologies in Iraqi Kurdistan, and the KRG needs to rationally deal with that. Yet they only care about the nationalist side in the Kurdistan Region, knowing that there are many other movements, particularly Islamic movements, in Syria.

    “The KRG is interested in the Kurdish parties in Syria. More than 100,000 displaced Syrians and refugees have fled to the region. They are all from the Syrian Kurdish areas, which they call Western Kurdistan, considering it to be a part of Greater Kurdistan, which is split between its southern part in Iraq, eastern part in Iran and northern part in Turkey.”

    Massoud Barzani, president of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, is said to have trained Syrian Kurdish militants in order to enable them to protect their areas in that country.

    Aziz reiterated: “It is humanitarian sympathy on the part of the young Kurds, after the rule of Bashar al-Assad has continued for so long, and has hit the opposition with all types of weapons. This has caused the world to have sympathy for those who are being oppressed and has given the Syrian opposition an Islamic character.”

    According to Aziz, the jihadist idea dates back to 1978 in Iraqi Kurdistan, when a Kurdish group formed the Army of the Quran and Muslim League. The group lasted for a very limited time, during which military conflicts erupted between it and secular parties, until the Islamic Movement of Kurdistan was established in 1987.

    Iraq Tries to Address the Exchange Rate Fluctuation of Dinar Against Dollar

    First Deputy Chairman of the parliament, Qusay al-Suhail demanded the Central Bank of Iraq to address fluctuating of exchange rate of the dinar against the US dollar and disclose its reasons.

    “Suhail chaired a meeting of the Finance Committee at its headquarters in the presence of the central bank governor , Abdul Basit Turki, the Chairman of the Committee and its members,” According to a statement issued by Suhail’s Office received by “Shafaq News”.

    Suhail stressed “the need to identify procedures taken by the management of the central bank to deal with the fluctuation of the exchange rate,” confirming ” the importance of knowing the real reasons that led to this instability, which will negatively affect the lives of the Iraqi individual”.

    The Presidency of the parliament announced on Sunday, its full support for the actions that the central bank intends to take to ensure the stability of the Iraqi currency after it experienced a value decline against the dollar to a record level in two year.

    The value of the Iraqi dinar has declined gradually over the past weeks to reach the per dollar price to about 1129 dinars after it was stable at 1120, which is the highest rate the exchange rate reaches during the past two years.

    The Finance Committee of the parliament revealed, early last month, that the Central Bank of Iraq started to take urgent measures to preserve the stability of the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar against the dollar by increasing exchange facilities of selling hard currency, but the value of the currency has continued to decline.
