    It is EVICT MALIKI DAY + FIFTEEN (15) or " E - M DAY +15 ".

    It is EVICT MALIKI DAY + FIFTEEN (15) or " E - M DAY +15 ".

    The countdown to election day is over. Will Maliki be evicted ? The coming days will be telling. First, we await the tabulation of votes, challenges and appeals must run their course, and then we should have a certification of the results and know which cluster received a plurality of the vote. News articles report that the foregoing will take about three (3) weeks and after May 25.


    " After the conclusion of national elections, the Iraqi constitution stipulates that the CoR ( Council of Representatives / Parliament ) will vote for senior positions in the Iraqi government, including the President, the Prime Minister and his deputies, and the cabinet. Although each CoR ( Council of Representatives / Parliament ) member contributes an individual vote, in practice this voting occurs only after an agreement has been reached among the senior leaders of the political groups, invoking party loyalty and voting discipline thereafter. The selection of the cabinet requires an absolute majority of the CoR ( Council of Representatives / Parliament ) members’ votes (165 votes). In the final negotiations over government formation, even small groups can play a decisive role if they are able to provide the last few votes a governing coalition needs to clear this constitutional hurdle. "


    REMEMBER, ............... Following the last election the new parliament opened on 14 June 2010 after the election on March 7th. Iraq set a record for the longest period of time without a government which lasted for about ten (10) months.

    Where are they now and how does all of this work ? Read the following article for a plain spoken analysis to date :

    First Published: 2014-05-14 and Courtesy of OOTW @ DinarUpdates

    Can Maliki stay in power despite election losses?

    Analysis suggests Iraqi PM will now try to round up handful of independent Sunni Muslim MPs for support despite facing armed struggle against him in some Sunni areas.

    So far, the preliminary, and as yet unofficial, results of Iraq’s general elections indicate that no single party will have a big enough proportion of votes to gain the majority they would need to rule the country. An estimated 60 percent of eligible voters cast their ballots last week in Iraq’s first general election since US troops left – despite concerns about violence, the turnout was good, slightly higher than the last few decades’ worth of US presidential elections. And the results so far – with no party getting a majority – were generally as expected.

    It is generally expected that the political bloc led by the current Iraqi prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will get the largest amount of votes. But it won’t be a majority. And the fact that no single entity will win a majority means that al-Maliki’s State of Law bloc will need to team up with some other political parties to form a coalition, where they do have a majority.

    As one senior member of the State of Law bloc put it, speaking to NIQASH anonymously: “It’s true we didn’t win a majority. But we are still a big bloc and nobody can afford to ignore us.”

    “Our planned alliances are not with Shiite Muslim parties but with small Sunni Muslim, Kurdish and independent parties,” the senior source said; al-Maliki’s bloc is mainly Shiite Muslim and after the last election, they teamed up with other Shiite Muslim parties. The source said that when coalitions began to be negotiated after election results became official, that everybody would be surprised.

    Al-Maliki’s biggest opponents are his former allies – the two biggest Shiite Muslim Parties, the Sadrist movement led by cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, and the coalition led by the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq’s Ammar al-Hakim, followed by the Iraqi Kurdish politicians in Baghdad and the Sunni Muslim politicians led by Osama al-Nujaifi, Iraq’s Parliamentary Speaker. All of these major parties have expressed their fervent desire to prevent al-Maliki taking on a third term.

    So al-Maliki is in trouble. There is almost no way he can win a majority and gain the 164 seats out of the total of 328 seats available in Baghdad’s Parliament. But analysts now believe he may try to gain control of a third of the seats – that is, 110 seats.

    This is one version of what may well be al-Maliki’s plan. The Iraqi Constitution says that the election of Iraq’s President should take place before the Prime Minister is chosen. The President needs to be chosen by a two-thirds majority in Parliament – and it is here that al-Maliki, if he can gain the support of a third of the newly elected MPs, will be able to disrupt proceedings and force his opponents to negotiate with him.

    So how will al-Maliki get the support of one-third of the newly elected MPs? Preliminary results indicate that he may win around 75 seats, and possibly he will also be able to claim another 15 seats won by smaller Shiite Muslim parties that support him. But the real answer is that, unexpectedly, he may well be supported by a number of smaller Sunni Muslim parties.

    But perhaps this should come as no surprise. When Iraq’s Sunni Muslims began to demonstrate about what they saw as their marginalization and persecution by the Shiite Muslim-dominated government headed by al-Maliki, several of al-Maliki’s political allies from Shiite Muslim parties actually expressed support for the demonstrators. This included members of the Sadrist movement and the party headed by al-Hakim.

    For this reason, al-Maliki began to search for Sunni Muslim allies. In fact, in Anbar province, where there is currently violence and unrest- the long term result of those first demonstrations al-Maliki has managed to bring several prominent Sunni Muslim leaders onto his side. He has presented himself as a strong leader, opposed to extremism and has presented the Al Qaeda offshoot, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, as his enemy and the enemy of Sunni Muslims in the province.

    In return he has been supported by the likes of Iraqi Defence Minister Saadoun al-Dulaimi, Anbar’s former governor, Qassim al-Fahdawi, and Karim Aftan al-Jumaili, Iraq’s Minister of Electricity. All of these Sunni Muslim politicians led smaller parties in the general elections last week.

    In the 2010 general elections, their parties supported the broader, mostly Sunni-Muslim Iraqiya coalition, led by former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi. But in these elections they’re supporting al-Maliki. Additionally, given the strained circumstances in which elections were held in Anbar, they’re highly likely to win seats.

    Al-Maliki has also been able to find friends in other parts of the country. In Salahaddin, he is being supported by controversial politician, Mishan al-Jabouri, who once supported Saddam Hussein and who has links to extremist groups. A few months ago al-Jabouri announced his support for al-Maliki. The current governor of Salahaddin, a Sunni Muslim, is also close to al-Maliki.

    And despite the fact that the northern city of Mosul is a stronghold for leading Sunni Muslim politician, Osama al-Nujaifi, the Iraqi Prime Minster has made some friends there too. This includes several sitting MPs, Abdul Rahman al-Luwaizi, Dildar al-Zibari and Zuhair al-Chalabi.

    It will not be clear which of these less senior Sunni Muslim MPs decides to support al-Maliki until the official election results have been declared and negotiations to form a government commence. Nor is it clear what al-Maliki can offer them so that they come onto his side. What is clear is that those negotiations are going to take a long time.

    It’s also obvious that there will be two teams during negotiations. One of those will be comprised of nearly all of the next-largest parties who don’t want to see al-Maliki hang onto power. It will be interesting to see how they can convince the smaller parties al-Maliki is wooing, not to support the Prime Minister. And the other team will be comprised of al-Maliki and his rag tag bunch of allies.

    Doubtless the haggling over who rules Iraq will take many months. And this will not have any impact on al-Maliki who will continue to head a caretaker government until positions can be filled. Al-Maliki’s government will be able to act in relatively unrestricted way during this time and it is possible that the Prime Minister and his party can use this to their advantage, to formulate bargaining chips and enticements for potential coalition partners.

    It is also possible that external influencers will be needed – the Iranians and the US may well be called in to mediate because of the high degree of distrust and unwillingness to negotiate in Iraqi politics today.

    At the moment though, how all of this proceeds remains unknown. And right now, actual issues – such as strengthening the economy, providing services to the Iraqi people and ending violence and extremist attacks – do not seem to be on the agenda for any of the country’s politicians, as they gear up for a long fight.

    SO, HOW DOES THE SLC GO FROM 67 TO 110 OR 1/3 OF THE " NEW " PARLIAMENT SO AS TO PREVENT THE FORMATION OF A GOVERNMENT THAT EXCLUDES MALIKI AND PROTRACTS THE FORMATION OF A GOVERNMENT UNTIL MALIKI CAN MAKE HIMSELF " USEFUL " ?

    POSSIBLE SUNNI STRENGTH :

    The election results have not yet been officially announced, and the media generally seem more focused on the Shiite political map than that of other segments. But the information available so far confirms that the Mutahidoun list, led by current parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi, is running ahead of other Sunni forces. Leaks to Al-Monitor suggest that Mutahidoun will have 33 to 35 seats in the next parliament, mostly centered in Mosul, Baghdad, Anbar and Diyala.

    Although the Al-Wataniya list, led by the liberal Shiite Ayad Allawi, did not present itself as a representative of the Sunnis in Iraq, the leaks suggest that it will win 20 to 25 seats concentrated in Baghdad, Babil, Salahuddin, Anbar and Kirkuk, and that most of its seats will go to Sunni candidates within the list.

    In third place comes the list of Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq with 8 to 10 seats concentrated in Baghdad and Salahuddin. According to the leaks, local lists have won a number of Sunni seats, which are expected to join various parliamentary alliances.

    THE KURDS AND POTENTIAL DIVISION OF THE KURDISH POSITION THROUGH MALIKI'S " SEDUCTION " OF THE PUK ( 14 SEATS PER THE ABOVE ) AND SEE ALSO : Maliki Wants a Third Term, Reaches Out to Kurds and Others

    By RUDAW

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has expressed his intention to remain in the premiership for a third term and has reached out to all political groups, including the Kurds, for negotiations, sources told Rudaw.

    A source in the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), the Kurdish party shown to have won the largest number of votes in last month’s parliamentary elections in early counts, said that his group leaders had received a letter signed by Maliki as the head of his State of Law party.

    "We have received Maliki's letter and have reviewed it, but we will not respond to the letter now," said the KDP source, speaking to Rudaw on condition of anonymity.

    The six-page letter is composed of two parts, covering the basis for the formation of the next Iraqi government and outlining strategic duties, with the most important centered on maintaining the territorial integrity of Iraq.

    Khalid Assadi, a leader of State of Law, confirmed that the same letters had been sent to all Iraqi parties, including the Kurds, for early talks about forming the next Iraqi government.

    It is widely believed it will take months before the various political groups can strike a deal and form the next government.

    Maliki has especially estranged the country’s two largest minorities, the autonomous Kurds in the north and the Sunnis. Maliki’s last term was possible only after the Kurds threw their backing behind him. However, over the past year relations between Maliki and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) have gone from bad to worse over energy rights and the budget.

    The letter is said to include details of programs and views of the State of Law about the next government.

    "The letter asks all the parties to start negotiations with State of Law to form the next cabinet based on the constitution and the parliamentary elections results," said Assadi. “Maliki has outlined the program and views of State of Law about the next government, saying it should be based on national principles and not repeat past errors."

    Maliki’s letter comes at a time when the results of the April 30 elections have not been officially announced. However, Maliki’s State of Law has made self-proclaimed victories in several southern provinces, saying it has outdone the other political parties.

    Liberals likely achieve a majority coalition and several blocks of Kurdistan is expected to repeat the scenario of Erbil and wants Allawi's coalition government of national unity

    Wed May 14 2014 23:55 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Long-Presse / Baghdad

    Confirmed the Liberal bloc, on Wednesday, looked forward to "the struggle of the partners run the opposition and their right to participate in the government," is likely to be a "political majority" through an alliance of several parliamentary blocs, while counting the Kurdistan Alliance, that the "majority" to come out of the new alliances " will not differ "from the government of national partnership, which resulted from the Erbil agreement, between Allawi's coalition, to support the Government of" national unity "represents the components of the Iraqi people as a whole.

    A spokesman for the Liberal block of the Sadrist movement, Jawad al-Jubouri, in an interview to the newspaper (range), "The majority of the political system is a higher degree of democracy, but Iraqi political blocs are no longer participating in the parliament, but want a role in the implementation process."

    The Jubouri, that "ethnic diversity and sectarian and ethnic in Iraq created a so-called democracy harmonic fostered by the United States after the occupation," adding that "it is meant to find a compromise formula between the political blocs on forming a government and the distribution of positions."

    The spokesman for the Liberal bloc, that "harmonic turned what is worse, it has become a system in Iraq, seizing political and sectarian, produced a need to expand ministries and positions to find a state of balance in the executive institutions," returned to "bring back democracy in Iraq without warning, or the development of the concepts of their own, made everyone looking for power-sharing, nor anyone would sit in the opposition benches. "

    And saw Jubouri, that "the system of proportional representation and St. Lego and the lack of any voting bloc in Iraq on the half plus one in the Parliament, ie 164 seats, it is difficult in practice to resort to the Government of the political majority," adding, "but the National Alliance can deliver the majority of the crisis."

    According to a spokesman for the Liberal bloc, that "Liberal bloc, for its part, at least, look at the rest of the ingredients and the parties that want to participate in the organization of the Executive, and looks forward to the struggle of the partners run against Saddam's regime and their right to participate in government," likely to "be a political majority, of through several blocks and not the result of a single block seats. "

    The media leaks own preliminary results of the parliamentary elections, confirming the inability of the list and one nail political majority that allows it to form a government alone.

    So I went back to the MP for the Kurdistan Alliance, Ala. Talabani, that "the time is still early to talk about the shape of the next government, before the appearance of the final results of the parliamentary elections."

    Talabani said in an interview to the newspaper (range), said that "talking about the political majority so often before and after the parliamentary elections," indicating that "the majority represented the best model to move the parliament and the activation of control was absent."

    Questioned the MP for the Kurdistan Alliance, in "the form of the political majority, if the majority of the components, or political blocs representing the components of a sectarian or nationalist," arguing that "the majority of which will be from the winning lists will differ from the government of national partnership, which was formed in 2010 under the the terms of the agreement Erbil, which coincided upon the political blocs, but objected, after one year, on the way Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, in the Department of State, and beat him to the decisions of Irbil, including the National Alliance, the man who has been nominated for a second term then. "

    Talabani stressed that "the inability of Parliament over the past years on the performance of its oversight role, because for every block on the positions in the government," she said that "the majority system, despite the difficulty to achieve, but it will support the work of the parliament."

    The parliament has failed more than once to obtain explanations from the prime minister on the files and crises erupted between Erbil and Baghdad, and a deal on Russian arms, and the war in Anbar, also failed to cross-examine security leaders and a number of ministers, to prevent some lawmakers representatives of the government in the parliament of the completion of the interrogation.

    Meanwhile, the MP said Hassan al-Hamdani, for a coalition of national, which is led by former Prime Minister, Iyad Allawi, in an interview to the newspaper (range), "The National Coalition looking for national reconciliation will not be achieved by the existence of a political majority."

    Hamdani said, that "national coalition seeking behind entering Parliament to rid the country of successive crises and achieve national unity and reconciliation," stressing that "the coalition supports the government of national unity representing all components of the Iraqi people."

    He said a member of Allawi's coalition, that "the achievement of the political majority is possible, but that did not support national unity, will increase the differences between the political blocs."

    The parties to a political recently reported, that the head of a coalition of state law, Nuri al-Maliki, sent the work program of the government, "political majority" which seeks to set up, the leaders of the political blocs to participate in the elections, indicating that the letter contained no 18-point head of the government's program of the proposed cross-coalition expected, including support of women's rights and the equitable distribution of the wealth of the country and rejected sectarianism.

    He also called on al-Maliki, the candidate of the Alliance entities to support decentralization and support for the speedy adoption of three laws are the political parties and the energy sector and the formation of the Federation Council approved by Parliament.

    MPs holding the presidency of the parliament and the political forces responsible for the delayed adoption of the budget

    Thu May 15 2014 06:23 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Baghdad's Rashid Shaima
    Politicians expressed their dissatisfaction with the passage of this year without the approval of the budget for 2014, blaming the Presidency of the Parliament and the political forces full responsibility.

    At a time when the state law expected to be integrated into this year's budget with next year, I went back the other blocs failure to approve the House of Representatives this year's budget constitutional violation.

    The leaks have revealed the possibility of merging the current year budget with the 2014 budget next year in the budget of one, where the government will switch after June 14 next to the caretaker government will then use the same mechanism in the disbursement of the budget for the current year.

    MP for the coalition of state law, Ibrahim stirrup, expected to be integrated into the budget in 2014 and 2015 with a budget that preoccupation with the political forces of the election results, in addition to the time remaining life of the parliament is not enough in order to be passed.

    The stapes in a statement »Sabah»: The «the remaining period of the life of Parliament is very critical because the session ends on 14/6 and the next session you need from the time limits of three months for the order placed and the formation of the government which has spread to the ninth month, then the government and the Ministry of Finance had prepared the budget next year, so it's unlikely, but can current and future sessions approval ».

    He added that «failure to approve the budget bill is a violation of a constitutional right of this session because the draft budget must pass each year being one of the most important laws» adding, «but the circumstances that have passed and political conflicts that violated the Constitution, so it will be used because one is forced to merge Almoisntin together», wishing that read together at the beginning of next year in order to distribute the projects as a decree.

    Between the stirrup and that «the remaining period may be sufficient if there were not political differences still hamper the adoption of the budget, as well as that of the current parliament awaiting the results of the elections as well as the political forces and the month will pass without a vote on the budget».
    The House of Representatives has failed several times to hold its own in the adoption of the financial budget for the current year have been postponed until after the legislative elections which were held in 30 of the last month because of the continuing political differences between the blocks and the failure to resolve the outstanding issues, the balance between Baghdad and Erbil.

    In turn, the MP for the mass of Mohammed commendable that the delay in approving the budget is not the welfare of Parliament and may not be combined with next year's budget.

    He said in a statement »morning», that «the budget need to be six months in the Council of Ministers for discussion and we want to accomplish this year's budget», calling for an emergency session for approval because the delay caused significant damage to the economy of the country ».

    And increased commendable that «the remaining period sufficient for approving the budget if the Presidency and the political blocs serious passing» adding, «but political differences still hinder the approval», indicating that in the case will not be approved during this session will be carried over to the next Parliament is that it is not in favor of the parliament, there is unlikely to be close to a session regarding the budget.

    It is said that the current parliament outgoing realistically on Monday, April 14 last year, where it began the holiday season legislature last and ending of a constitutional standpoint on June 14 next, and decided the presidency of the House of Representatives earlier in the continuation of permanence and sessions until the end of the current legislative term, and in case failure to approve the budget will continue to work to 14 June next ».

    The MP for the National Bloc white Kadhim al-Shammari, has counted a failure to approve the budget so far «error» involving all political forces and not only the House of Representatives. Al-Shammari said in an interview »Sabah»: he «errors unforgivable to pass in 2014 without a budget», describing it as «a real disaster» against the Iraqi people and the violation of a constitutional right to his needs, calling the current parliament to the conclusion of the session to convene an emergency session of the budget and only will be judged on the presidency of the Parliament as «foiled presidency passed to the history of Iraq».

    He said the «delay the budget does not mean that non-payment of money, but it means that the money will be disbursed in accordance with the system of ministries twelfth any exchange operating budget and the disruption of the investment budget, pointing out that recycling this year's budget to next year's budget technical error must be remedied.

    It is said that the legal expert Tareq Harb, warned in advance of the seriousness of the integration of the budget in 2014 with a budget of 2015 in the event of failure to reach the adoption of the current year budget, noting that the Constitution did not allow such a thing but it is possible legislation Almoisntin at one time of the new parliament as long as that there is a law for every budget.

    In order to revive the Iraqi economy experts: the diversity of the currency basket is the best solution to address the low value of the dinar against other currencies



    Mushtaq Al-Jassem - A number of specialists and economists that there is diversity in the basket of currencies of the Iraqi order to develop and activate the economic process in the country, while the student a number of specialists structural reforms on the work of the economic sector. Says economist Faraj Saad Allah of the best solutions to address the low value Aldenarabraghi against other currencies is the diversity of the reserve with the Central Bank «reasoned that it« will make us deal with the exchange rate of the dinar according to the real value of it.
