    21-08-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

     translation term
    Saw the outgoing روداو newspaper in Erbil, Maliki went to accuse his opponents and allies of causing the failures of his government, making it lose their support. The newspaper, in its report, said that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki blamed on opponents and allies alike on the failures of his government, accusing deputies of his deputies by giving him false information about power outages, and the Mahdi Army and behind the escaped prisoners from jails in Baghdad, which made him lose even his allies. The newspaper was referring to a meeting with the Prime Minister a number of political commentators aired on Iraqi TV earlier this month.

    Maliki said in the meeting that the shortage of electricity supply is not a sin. He said in the meeting, which sparked controversy, said Hussain al-Shahristani, Deputy Prime Minister for Energy Affairs, "gave me incorrect information about the level of production of electricity in Iraq." The روداو described Maliki's government, led by Shiites, as distorted because of the bombings and attacks that nearly escalated dramatically, with large minority Sunni and Kurdish no longer consider him as a man who leads Iraq.

    Habib Terminal, MP for the mass of citizens, he said at the time of the newspaper "The National Alliance accused al-Maliki will discuss these." Did not enslave the existence of intentions and behind Maliki accusations this "purpose incision row Iraqi National Alliance." Terminal said that "Maliki's comments that represent his personal view. Decided discussed in the framework of the National Alliance in the near future."

    The newspaper found that the strongest response to Maliki's comments came from Prince Kanani, a leader of the Sadrist movement. As Kanani said that "the National Alliance does not consist of Maliki alone. Alliance consists of many factions and groups. Rebellious and the only one in this alliance is a coalition of state law of the owners, who do not abide by the directives coalition."

    Kanani said that "al-Maliki's comments were misplaced," adding that "these statements will lead to political groups to consider carefully voted in next time for the post of Prime Minister of Iraq." He Kanani also said that "al-Maliki tries to evade failures in improving the security situation, and social services, and foreign relations, and the elimination of corruption. Indeed is the failure of so that it offers to citizens ration, which succeeded Saddam provided despite the economic blockade."

    Kanani saw that "the next government will become the first independent Iraqi government after the withdrawal of U.S. troops, because the United States and Iran have their roles in the appointment of the Prime Minister of Iraq." He claimed that "if al-Maliki became prime minister again, will Atksm Iraq and fall into a civil war."

    For his part, says Hashim Habboubi, a columnist for Iraqi politician, al-Maliki's attack related to the upcoming parliamentary elections. And said Habboubi "Maliki have no choice other than trying to find excuses for its failures in the political, economic, security and social services."

    Observers: the interests of the large blocs prevent consensus on a common formula to the election law
    21-08-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

     Baghdad / term

    The closer the date of the elections the major Iraqi parties drafting a new election law suits measured and ensures victory, which is what is happening now in the House of Representatives, with exchange of Representatives shouting in a noisy sessions to discuss the upcoming parliamentary election law in 2014.

    Ironically, that is full of the political process in Iraq since 2003, is the absence of specific laws and fixed for electoral processes, whether parliamentary elections or provincial elections.

    Weeks ago, the Iraqi parliament tries to make amendments to the House of Representatives Election Law No. (16) for the year 2005, but the resolution of these amendments is not an easy task, because each party involved in the political process wants to be the new amendments suitable for popularity.

    According to a poll conducted by "talk" with MPs belonging to different blocks on their demands about the shape of the new parliamentary election law, showing that these conflicting demands between them, the parties are still unable to agree on a compromise that satisfies everyone.

    He says Mohammed Kayani, Chairman of the Committee of the Regions and provinces in parliament, a committee in charge to make amendments to the election law, for "discussion" that "the political blocs presented their proposals and we on our part we have collected all in one draft to facilitate discussion."

    But Kayani recognized the difficulty of finding consensus among the major parliamentary blocs about the amendments and says "the political blocs seek to formulate a law suit developed and size, provides a guarantee of victory in the elections or maintain their current positions."

    Issues prevent dual nationality from running in the elections, and the number of constituencies, and how the distribution of seats, and the method of counting, and the theme of "quota", and the date of the special voting security men were the main points of contention between the major blocs Kayani said.

    And gave up the State of Law coalition, led by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, his demand that the elections will be according to the closed-list, but he refuses to distribution of voters according to a system of "Saint Lego" which has been applied in provincial elections that took place on the twentieth of April last year and lost where the party "Islamic call" a lot of votes compared to the previous elections.

    He says a member of the "coalition of state law," Abbas al-Bayati for "discussion" that "Saint Lego was not successful in the recent elections, and apply large parties were denied access to thousands of the votes of their constituents and should not be relied upon again."

    But the Sadrist movement led by Moqtada al-Sadr supported Saint Lego. He says MP Jawad al-Jubouri, the Liberal bloc, for "discussion" that "Saint Lego gives small blocks and individual other candidates a chance to win and prevents large parties from monopolizing work in Parliament."

    As for the rest of disagreements block فتطالب "the Kurdistan Alliance," to be open-list elections according to that there should be a single constituency in all of Iraq instead of multiple departments.

    Ktlta "Iraqi" and "National Alliance" refuse circuit per call for that there are 18 constituencies spread over the number of Iraqi provinces, while the requirement includes the Sadrist movement in this case that there will be an even multiple departments within each province.

    The issue of "quota" of religious and ethnic minorities in other elections are disputed issues, The Yezidi component demands increase "quota" of its own from one deputy in parliament to five.

    With calls for a number of deputies among them women Safiya Suhail increase "quota" of women from 25% to over 50% of the total number of deputies of the parliament's 325 deputies. On the other proposals, a proposal to prevent persons who hold foreign nationality alongside Iraqi nationality from nomination to election except in the case of abandonment of foreign nationality.

    These points of contention and the subsequent long debate between the major parties, has become a familiar phenomenon in the political process before all the elections held in the country.

    Independent MPs spoke for "discussion" provided no reference to the names of the existence of the fears for the country's fledgling democracy, as long as the essence of democracy represented in the elections is not subject to a fixed law, and that every electoral process conducted legislation requires a new electoral law.

    These concerns are also present among civil society organizations and activists in the field of rights and freedoms and the public, while others wonder about the causes of the phenomenon that keep pace with the political scene.

    Hanaa Edwar activist demanded during her speech with "talk" of the need to put an end to this and say, "separating the parties size fits election law before the elections as a person goes to Khayat separates the dress measured."

    In the first legislative elections in Iraq in 2005 the political blocs approved the closed-list system and make Iraq a single constituency, and known negatives to this electoral system that limits the winners of the big parties and deprive voters to choose a particular candidate and only choosing a complete list without knowing the candidates.

    Against the backdrop of public criticism and international to the way the 2005 elections, acknowledged the political blocs to a new law for elections, the second legislative elections in March 2010, includes the election hybrid that combines existing open and closed, and Iraq was then 18 constituencies after it had been a single electoral constituency.

    This resulted in a new law cons was the marginalization of small parties and forces, with أسعفت to the electoral quota ingredients and ethnic and religious minorities (Shabak, Turkmen and Christians) of marginalization, and increased the influence of the major political powers at the expense of small businesses.

    Former president of the Independent High Commission for Elections Faraj al-Haidari recognizes that election laws enacted in accordance with the wishes of the political blocs large and said the "debate" that "the Commission can not intervene in the work of Parliament, except offer advice and explain theories and electoral mechanisms universally adopted in a democracy."

    He pointed observers and political analysts, in conversations them with "talk" to the change that reality depends on intensive efforts are supposed to involve civil society organizations working in two directions, the first is by clicking on the political elites current to change their positions and the second orientation towards the Iraqi street through campaigns ongoing education of voters.

    Consensus decision-making is a group decision making process that seeks the consent of all participants. Consensus may be defined professionally as an acceptable resolution, one that can be supported, even if not the "favourite" of each individual. Consensus is defined by Merriam-Webster as, first, general agreement, and second, group solidarity of belief or sentiment. It has its origin in the Latin word cōnsēnsus (agreement), which is from cōnsentiō meaning literally feel together.[1] It is used to describe both the decision and the process of reaching a decision. Consensus decision-making is thus concerned with the process of deliberating and finalizing a decision, and the social and political effects of using this process.

    Majority voting processes :

    Proponents of consensus decision-making view procedures that use majority rule as undesirable for several reasons. Majority voting is regarded as competitive, rather than cooperative, framing decision-making in a win/lose dichotomy that ignores the possibility of compromise or other mutually beneficial solutions. A consensus approach protests minorities, important to the Kurds and others, but .......... Critics of consensus blocking often observe that the option, while potentially effective for small groups of motivated or trained individuals with a sufficiently high degree of affinity, has a number of possible shortcomings, notably

    Preservation of the Status quo: In decision-making bodies that use formal consensus, the ability of individuals or small minorities to block agreement gives an enormous advantage to anyone who supports the existing state of affairs. This can mean that a specific state of affairs can continue to exist in an organization long after a majority of members would like it to change.[54] The incentive to block can however be removed by using a special kind of voting process.[45]

    Susceptibility to widespread disagreement: Giving the right to block proposals to all group members may result in the group becoming hostage to an inflexible minority or individual. When a popular proposal is blocked the group actually experiences widespread disagreement, the opposite of the consensus process's goal. Furthermore, "opposing such obstructive behavior [can be] construed as an attack on freedom of speech and in turn [harden] resolve on the part of the individual to defend his or her position."[55] As a result, consensus decision-making has the potential to reward the least accommodating group members while punishing the most accommodating.
