"EVICT MALIKI" COUNTDOWN : 4 DAYS TO THE ELECTION"
NOTE: that the countdown notice has been amended to qualify the Election as "Scheduled" to give emphasis to the tenuous state of political / constitutional affairs in Iraq in recent days and specifically the mention in the news of a possible delay in the election due to the Anbar diaspora. Add to the foregoing the " threat" of the election occurring under martial law with Maliki as the chief executive officer.
The sectarian, ethnic and party quota system that has dominated the Iraqi government over the past years has led to a number of problems in the country's young democratic experiment. Yet, the main issueis that rather than developing a national discourse, the system has obfuscated political responsibility and produced an excuse-laden discourse centered around sects and party supporters.
In this regard, one must acknowledge that the idea of consensual democracy in a divided society has been ineffectively applied in Iraq. Political consensus and partnership in government should be based on implementing agreements and programs, not the sharing of positions and ministries, converting them into private estates for this or that party or sect. The reality of this situation in Iraq has introduced ambiguous governing concepts into the Iraqi polity.
The major problem is the absence of responsibility, which becomes more apparent during elections by examining the electoral programs and the competition to attain power. After the political parties present their programs, compete in elections and enter parliament and the government, they do not seem to understand that they are then supposed to represent not just their voters, but all citizens, including those who voted against them and those who did not vote at all. This has not happened in Iraq in the past, and it does not appear that it will happen now.
Candidates address their audience — that is, the members of their party, sect or ethnicity — to obtain their support by making them scared of those who belong to a different group, thus exploiting their fears. Had the parties in the last 10 years succeeded in serving their sect or group, then perhaps adopting a sectarian discourse could be justified. Iraq, however, with its various sects, is going through difficult times, suffering from poverty, poor planning and insecurity. The country stands at the precipice of partition with every political crisis.
Elections are meant to translate the popular, collective will into a working mechanism. Here, collective will does not necessarily mean the will of the numerical majority, but the product of the interaction of different wills. The danger that Iraq faced after 2003 was the inability of parties and movements to interact around a collective will with divisions along sectarian and ethnic bases. Thus, they opted for a consensual democracy as the way to achieve the desired interaction among the different wills of Iraq’s components.
At this sensitive point, the quota crisis emerged. The forces that represent Iraqi components have failed to produce a road map that guarantees the rights of everyone on the basis of citizenship. They have also failed to dispel the fears that democracy is the rule of a sectarian or ethnic majority, not that of a political majority. The reality is that these forces have put their own interests before the interest of Iraq's component parts, and thus before the interests of Iraq as the framework for these components. This has led to the country being stuck in the current state of never-ending, excruciating crises.
Days before the April 30 parliamentary elections, a fundamental change in the thinking of the political elite has failed to appear. The political discourse continues to lack responsibility toward the people, instead focusing on sect, paying no attention to the interests of other communities and components. The discourse offers no vision on how to solve others' crises, concerns and needs. To Iraqi parties, those who belong to another sect or ethnicity are firmly outside their sectarian island. They live on another, faraway island, and during elections they are invisible.

Maliki goes on offense as elections approach
In an interview with the Lebanese Al-Manar TV channel on April 20, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki challenged his adversaries, who have been accusing him of becoming a dictator and monopolizing authority, to prove that he has violated the constitution, if even once. Maliki said that he has never overstepped the constitution or law in any of his policies or powers, and that his adversaries want to blame him for the failure of the partnership government, which they themselves are part of. Maliki reiterated his promise that the next stage will not witness a return to a partnership government including all parties. The only solution is a majority government whose ministers are appointed by Maliki, and which he leads.
The Maliki-led State of Law Coalition includes 12 parties and groups, including the Islamic Dawa Party, led by Maliki himself, the Badr Organization, the Independent Bloc, headed by Deputy Prime Minister Hussein al-Shahristani, in addition to other smaller parties.
The coalition is participating in the elections in all cities with a Shiite majority and focusing its electoral campaign on the Shiite audience. Maliki started his electoral rounds with a visit to Basra in southern Iraq on April 11, and he later visited all Shiite cities.
During these rounds, Maliki sought to promote his coalition by sponsoring or launching new service projects such as the inauguration of a big hospital in Najaf. He also inspected the site of the Besmaya Housing Project in Baghdad, which is one of the largest housing projects in the capital and aims at building more than 100,000 housing units.
In the speech he gave during his visit to the site, Maliki vowed to begin implementing the plan to build 1 million new housing units in the country to solve the housing crisis. He also emphasized that the slackening in developing infrastructure and services stems from the lack of cooperation by other political forces and from the parliament’s attempt to hamper any achievements that are in the interest of the government and prime minister.
In his visits, Maliki also distributed many lots of land to those who do not have homes. His opponents considered this an exploitation of his governmental position to win the support of voters.
Regarding the elections in mixed areas with significant Shiite minorities, Maliki’s party allied with other Shiite groups in multiparty alliances.
In Diyala, the Fadila Party and the Sadiqoun Bloc, which represents the paramilitary Ahl al-Haq Movement, joined the State of Law Coaltion. In Kirkuk, Maliki’s party joined the gathering called Turkman Kirkuk Coalition, which also includes the Fadila Party, the Sadiqoun Bloc and the National Reform Movement led by former Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari. In Saladin, Maliki’s coalition joined the Islamic Supreme Council, the Independent Bloc, the Badr Organization, the Fadila Party, the Sadiqoun Bloc and the National Reform Movement in a Shiite alliance that excludes Sadrists and carries the name of the National Saladin Alliance.
Maliki’s current alliances emphasized its Shiite character, compared to the way things were in 2010, and the closeness of Maliki to the extreme religious-right Shiite forces such as the Fadila Party, and to those closest to Iran such as the Badr Organization and Ahl al-Haq Movement.
This focus on the Shiite constituency might be understandable. All the main forces preferred to consolidate their sectarian electoral constituencies because they realized that larger blocs will be formed after the elections. However, it is still unclear whether Maliki’s alliance with the Islamic Supreme Council and most other Shiite forces in Saladin province indicates that a similar national alliance will be formed after the elections.
There are also small groups that are pro-Maliki but entered the electoral race on separate lists to increase their chances of gaining votes, which would be difficult to obtain by being part of the State of Law Coalition. These groups include the Iraqi Loyalty Coalition led by Sami al-Askari, Maliki's close associate, the Movement for a Fair State — both of which are running in the elections in Baghdad and cities with a Shiite majority — and the Rule of Law Youth Movement, which is running in Baghdad.
Although Ali al-Adeeb, a senior member of the Dawa Party who is seen as a potential alternative to Maliki, is heading the State of Law Coalition list in Karbala, he is also leading a separate group called the Gathering of Comprehensive Revival. This gathering also includes candidates in Baghdad and cities with a Shiite majority. This step can be interpreted as part of an electoral tactic aimed at acquiring any votes that may not go directly to the State of Law Coalition. It also infers internal tension resulting from the rivalry between Maliki and Adeeb, which is one of the reasons that seem to have pushed Maliki to rely more on his relatives and place the husbands of his two daughters on the State of Law Coalition list in Karbala, which is headed by Adeeb.
This may be an early omen of a conflict between the partisans currently linked to the Dawa Party and the family wing in the prime minister's office, whose influence has grown in recent years, as the prime minister’s opponents say.
Besides those alliances, the majority government project advocated by Maliki will seemingly be based on an alliance with the Sunni forces, most notably the list led by Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq, in addition to new powers such as the Iraq Coalition led by businessman Fadhil al-Dabas, who is believed to have close ties with the government.
However, Maliki needs to win more seats than the 89 seats he got in the previous elections for these alliances to be able to guarantee the 165 seats that are required to form a majority.
In the interview with Al-Manar, Maliki said that “if the elections are conducted with integrity,” then he is confident his coalition would score the biggest victory, achieving far more votes than the bloc ranking second.
The State of Law Coalition is most likely seeking to secure more than 100 seats to prevent any potential alliance between Muqtada al-Sadr and Ammar al-Hakim from forming a larger coalition than his, and thus confirm that he represents the vast majority of Shiites.
Therefore, the coalition’s rhetoric has attempted to show that competing Shiite forces have not taken a sufficiently firm position against the terrorism targeting Shiite civilians.
The prime minister's office has even issued a statement on April 8 condemning the remarks of Sadrist leader Bahaa al-Araji, who said that members of the Iraqi army lack a doctrine, which Maliki deemed as an insult to the armed forces that are fighting terrorism.
In a speech he made in Baghdad to start the coalition’s campaign on April 2, Maliki pointed out the danger of the role played by some politicians who are providing a cover for terrorism through their positions that lack support for the army and the government.
By attempting to portray his rivals as disruptive of the government and indifferent to — if not collaborative with — terrorism, Maliki is seeking to gain greater Shiite support to turn his coalition into the undisputed Shiite bloc that others cannot bypass or marginalize.
Ali Mohammad Al-Hussein Ali Al-Adeeb is an Iraqi politician and a senior member of the Islamic Dawa Party. In April 2006 he was tipped by the United Iraqi Alliance as a candidate for the post of Prime Minister, after their original choice, Ibrahim Jaafari, was vetoed by the Kurdistani Alliance and Iraqi Accord Front.
Adeeb was born in Karbala in 1944 and went to secondary school in Baghdad. He obtained a degree in Literature and Education from the Baghdad University and taught Psychology.
While Saddam Hussein was the President of Iraq, Adeeb was exiled to Iran, where he headed the Teheran-based Political Bureau of the Dawa party and took the nickname "Abu Bilal". He returned to Iraq in 2003 after the invasion.
Adeeb was appointed to the committee that drafted the Constitution of Iraq in 2004, and has been a member of the Iraqi Parliament since 2004.
Who is Ali Al Adeeb? Ali al-Adeeb is a senior member of the Islamic Dawa Party. He returned from exile in Iran to Iraq in 2003 on the back of American tanks. In April 2006 he was tipped as a candidate for the post of Prime Minister. Al-Adeeb was also appointed to the committee that drafted the illegal Constitution of Iraq under occupation in 2005. Ali Al Adeeb (realname Ali Akbar Zandi) is believed to have a brother in the Iranian Shura Council.
Recently it became known that even Ali Al-Adeeb’s diploma has been forged. His diploma certificate was issued on 30-09-2010, after his appointment as minister, and it shows that he had graduated from the College of Education/Baghdad University on 30-06-1965, meaning he was 19 years old, as he was born in 1946, and this is impossible in Iraq.
Rumors of a possible split in Iraq’s ruling Dawa party leadership may weaken its standing and lead to new openings in the Iraqi political establishment. http://english.al-akhbar.com/node/1087
Maliki not sacked from Dawa party, sources.
BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi Dawa Party denied the news that minister of higher education Ali al-Adeeb assumed the position of premier Nouri al-Maliki in order to form "a national rescue government in cooperation with Ahrar, Muwatin and Iraqiya blocs". BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi Dawa Party denied the news that minister of higher education Ali al-Adeeb assumed the position of premier Nouri al-Maliki in order to form "a national rescue government in cooperation with Ahrar, Muwatin and Iraqiya blocs". Member of the Polit-bureau Hassan al-Sinaid announced that "the General Conference and the Polit-bureau of the party, including al-Adeeb himself, are keen to support Maliki's government". And number of electronic sites reported that al-Adeeb was elected as secretary general of the party instead of Maliki. Last March, Maliki was re-elected as secretary general of the party for the third time. Maliki was elected as secretary general of the Islamic Dawa Party in 2007, in the first conference to be held in Iraq, following 2003 war, then re-elected in 2009. Dawa Party was established in 1957 which suffered the arrests of the previous regime till 2003. http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Maliki...s.-a0338371457
Ali al-Adeeb, a senior member of the Dawa Party and a member of Iraq's Parliament, also said the Iraq National Oil Co. should take the lead in developing and managing Iraq's discovered but undeveloped oil, the Al Sabah newspaper reports.
This is a very important declaration by, Ali Al-Adeeb. Somehow it has escaped public attention, whether by chance or design. Al-Adeeb is a prominent leader of the Dawa Party, to which the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri Al-Maliki, belongs. Al-Adeeb's stand and opinion carry a great weight in the Dawa party, some observers consider him as the most important force in that current, which is much wider and more powerful than the official organization. In the present precarious political situation in Iraq, it could be no exaggeration to say, his declaration would fatally affect the destiny of the Oil Law and with it the fate of Maliki's Prime Ministry. http://www.zoominfo.com/p/Ali-al-Adeeb/978849239

He told the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA / who would head the government of the political majority will depend on the ballots in the election of parliament as well as who can form a strong alliance to form a majority government. "
Shabandar added, "The natural course of democracy is having majority rules and the rest of the blocs monitor and opposes in parliament, but what we see in Iraq is a fad government of national partnership that we accepted it to be a bridge to cross to true democracy, which is supposed not to drag more of two terms."

Let the main political blocs sit on a round table and form the government and share power," pointing out that "the Government of the political majority will not be able to change the course of the entire political process, but it will be the beginning to change the quo status the better."
BGG ~ Shabandar is no more an "independent" than I am an astronaut. This is a voice/product of Maliki's recent political engineering. He has diversified his allies so as to appear like more of a "coalition" than it really is...
57261 Options Iraq's Kurds: Who is the «horse betting» after the election?
Options Iraq's Kurds: Who is the «horse betting» after the election?
Fri Apr 25 2014 00:37 | (Voice of Iraq)
Talk | Hooshang Osei | Brussels |
It seems the Iraqi political scene fragmented more than ever and this disintegration make the choice Kurds in the coalition's future hazy, as it is not confined to the breakup of the partnership in the Shiite bloc its components known as "Dawa" and "the Sadrist movement and the" Supreme Council "and" National Congress "and "Virtue Party."
General collapse targeted some Sunni political parties Campaigns election revealed a state of chaos and confusion and conflict of wills and sectarian agendas, including national and regional, party and even personal.
Amid it seems the Kurdish situation in spite of what is marred by internal problems that are better off in terms of cohesion and stability compared Balmkonin Shiite and Sunni.
The analogy with the political bickering between Erbil and Baghdad, and the high tension and cramping in the statements between the Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, the Kurds appear to be permanently wiped their hands of the latter.
Accuse Iraqi Prime Minister in the last stage of the Eckerd "stealing Iraq's oil and sell it to Turkey through a pipeline secret" exacerbated Altoterban parties, with response Barzani him that "the livelihood of the region is almost the worst and most dangerous of the bombing of Halabja with chemical weapons", in reference to the decision Maliki to stop the region exchange allocations from the general budget.
Barzani said they are waiting for the results, "U.S. mediation to resolve the problem of al-Maliki's decision to stop converting the region's budget, and in the case of failure," the region will find itself compelled to rely on its resources and everything will change, "and expressed the hope that the results of the parliamentary elections occur and breakthrough change.
He renewed his threats and his criticism of the owners at the meeting, which was conducted by the channel "Sky News Arabic" with him on 13.04.2014, speaking of "the failure of the experiment federalism, and the need to guide Iraq toward Alkonfdiralah" and that it would have on the results of the elections many things, reflected on the future of Iraq and the Kurdistan region.
Barzani threats of secession is not the first of its kind. It has already launched a number of occasions, but never carried out, as well as non-state created great pressure on the Maliki government paid to respond to the demands of the Kurds over the past eight years.
While al-Maliki arrived for his concerted and agree wills American - Iranian - Iraqi Kurdish. According to Barzani confirmed in his interview for "Sky News Arabia."
During these eight years, succeeded Tehran to dismantle the fronts Maliki's opponents, most notably the Broad Front, which was formed from the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds, in order to censure him, in 2012. While newspaper reports recently, that the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, is making efforts shuttle and painstaking to arrange Shiite house, and al-Maliki, is about to lose its status as an "option" Iranian sole.
The question here is: Do you repeat the Kurds, Barzani what he saw as a "mistake" in the re-alliance with al-Maliki, after Brōh experienced and promises for eight years? Compared to the data and a war of words exchanged, and the recent attitudes of the Maliki government over the Kurdish region, the seemingly impossible return of confidence Kurdish Maliki, but the political game are subject to change according to the interests and no one knows until the day of the person who would be a "horse betting" to the Kurds in the post-election phase.
In light of the foregoing, the Kurds of Iraq awaiting the results of the parliamentary elections impatiently and postpone their project in the declaration of secession while placing this election is over and the results reveal about the forces that govern the country.
Hence, the Kurds will begin talks on a consensual acceptance of another candidate for prime minister Maliki, who is let down by promises made in the agreement Erbil.
KDP is in control of the parliament in the region, while the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), is suffering declining popularity and internal crisis deep, strong conflict wings in conjunction with the disease and the absence of its leader, President Jalal Talabani, while in Iraq the picture is different conflict between the two components, the Shiite and Sunni at its peak, as well as internal conflicts within each component separately.
In sum, the end of this Chersijud Iraqi Kurds and Arabs parliamentary elections, is the first of its kind after the departure of U.S. troops from Iraq, they will not get out of them as they entered because the balance of power will remain unchanged and will be subject to ballot boxes which will produce the other "horse betting," which will be supported by the Kurds to stage the next.
