    PUK Names Qubad Talabani Deputy Prime Minister
    By RUDAW

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) named on Sunday Qubad Talabani as deputy prime minister for the eighth cabinet of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). The 37-year-old candidate was chosen by leaders of his party to become Nechirvan Barzani’s deputy in the new government yet to be formed. Qubad Talabani is the son of Jalal Talabani, the secretary general of the PUK who has also been Iraq’s president since 2005. The Iraqi president is currently convalescing from a stroke he suffered in 2012 in a German hospital. The PUK is expected to officially submit Qubad Talabani’s name to Kurdistan Region’s presidency and parliament for endorsement. The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) that was the winner of the September 21 parliamentary polls welcomed PUK’s nomination. “The post of deputy prime minister of Kurdistan had been designated for the PUK and he [Qubad Talabani] is their choice for which we congratulate them,” Kakamin Najar, a member of the KDP leadership council told Rudaw. This development brings Erbil closer to forming a government after almost eight months of negotiations between the PUK and KDP leaders. So far no political party appears opposed to Talabani’s nomination as deputy prime minister. Muhammad Tofiq Rahim, the head of the diplomatic relations of the Change Movement (Gorran) said that the decision belonged to the PUK only and “they have appointed him [Talabani] for that post.” Mawlud Bawamurad, an official from the Islamic Union (Yekgirtu) said that his party congratulates the PUK and “wishes Talabani success.” A leader of the Islamic League (Komal) meanwhile, pointed to the reputation of Qubad Talabani’s father as a well-known and influential Kurdish and Iraqi politician. “But how successful he will be at this new post remains to be seen in the future,” said Abdulsattar Majid from Komal. “And apparently the PUK has seen him suitable for this post.” Talabani served as the KRG representative in Washington DC until 2012 when he returned to Erbil to become the Minister of Coordination and Follow-up in Barzani’s previous cabinet. Talabani had the support of most senior leaders of his party. However, Rudaw has learned from a source inside the PUK that Sheikh Jaafar Mustafa, the former minister of Peshmerga, Mahmoud Sangawi and Azad Jundiani were opposed to the nomination, voting in favor of Hakim Qadir, a senior leader and former head of Sulaimani municipality. Most importantly however, Talabani had the backing of Kosrat Rasul, the PUK deputy chief. Meanwhile, the view of Barham Salih, isn’t known since he reportedly didn’t attend the meeting that elected Qubad Talabani for his new position.

    Political Parties in Iraq on Collision Course over Third Term For Maliki

    Political Parties in Iraq on Collision Course over Third Term For Maliki
    By RUDAW

    Allawi: ‘We agreed with Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani that re-nomination of Nouri Maliki is a red line.’

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iraq’s political groups appear headed for a showdown over whether Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki should stay for a third term, following the April 30 polls that his Shiite-led State of Law bloc says it swept.

    In order to stay in his post, Maliki needs the support of the country’s powerful Sunnis and Kurds, as well as fellow Shiites that his party has alienated with its policies. But none appears ready to offer such support.

    The Sunni al-Watania bloc said on Sunday it would not allow Maliki to stay in for a third term, the powerful Shiite Sadrist bloc said it was also opposed and the autonomous Kurds, who tried to engineer an unsuccessful “no confidence” bid against Maliki during his second term, have no love lost for the premier.

    Iyad Allawi, head of the al-Watania bloc, said that a large part of the problems in Iraq could be resolved by replacing Maliki. Allawi said that Maliki staying in power was a “red line” for his bloc, which is not ready to allow it.

    "We don't mind even if Maliki would win 10 million votes; we should place democracy in the forefront, and we need a roadmap to get Iraq to stability," he told Rudaw TV.

    During a visit to Erbil, Allawi met with Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani. According to a statement by the Kurdistan Presidency, the two leaders “emphasized that the elections and results should rectify the political process and resolve the issues."

    "We agreed with Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani that re-nomination of Nouri Maliki is a red line," Allawi said.

    Amir Kanani, a leader of the Shiite Sadr trend, said his bloc was busy within the National Alliance, discussing two points: First, nomination of a National Alliance candidate for the premiership, and second the peaceful transfer of power from Maliki.

    Kanani said that his group is in touch with the Supreme Islamic Council of Iraq (ISCI) to organize a joint delegation to the Kurdistan Region.

    Meanwhile, Allawi said he is ready to back President Barzani to replace Jalal Talabani as the president of Iraq, but that his bloc opposes the division of positions according to ethnic or religious quotas.

    “The Iraqi constitution has not indicated that the post should be only for Kurds, but we don't mind even that post, or even other posts in the hands of the Kurds. In particular if someone like Barzani would become Iraqi president, that would be an honor for us," Allawi said.

    But he added that: "If someone would say that this post is related to Kurds and that one is for Sunnis or Arabs, I confront it and reject it."

    On the issue of the Kurdistan’s Region’s independent oil exports, Allawi said that the Kurds can handle the exports, but the revenues must be returned to the central government.

    “We support oil exports, provided the revenue returns to the central government, and this is a constitutional matter," Allawi said.

    Despite the rejections by the Kurds, Sunnis and some Shiite parties, State of Law insists on offering Maliki as the sole candidate for prime minister. It has reportedly written to all political groups, including the Kurds, calling for support for Maliki’s bid for another term in office.

    Meanwhile, Kanani referred to the heavy Iranian hand in Iraqi politics, and Tehran’s support for Maliki.

    “There is a foreign role in settling that post, but we reject such interference and the premiership issue has to be decided inside the country," said Kanani. "Furthermore, we insist that the three presidencies (speaker of parliament, Iraqi presidency and premiership) should not exceed more than two terms," he added.
