    It is EVICT MALIKI DAY + THIRTY - TWO ( 32 ) or " E - M DAY + 32 ".


    " ..... despite the superiority of Maliki’s electoral coalition, the competing Shiite forces, the Kurds and the Sunnis, are together able to form a comfortable majority to prevent Maliki from remaining in office. "......................

    Maliki likely fears that if he rushes to do business with parties outside the Shiite alliance, his Shiite rivals would do the same and that they may have a better chance to win over the Kurdish and Sunni forces, because there is a general consensus among them to not keep Maliki in power.

    At the same time, the rest of the Shiite groups fear that this consensus is not solid enough to withstand discussing the details, and that going alone to the Kurdish and Sunni forces may put them in a weak bargaining position and make them appear responsible for breaking Shiite unity.

    An important factor here are the choices that the Sunni and Kurdish forces will make. If the Sunnis and Kurds rush to form ethnic and sectarian alliances, then the Shiite alliance may do the same.

    Some are proposing scenarios such as replacing Maliki with another figure from the State of Law Coalition as a compromise to ensure the continuation of the Shiite alliance. Yet, such a solution may come at a later stage, after the favored options by most parties have been exhausted. What is certain now is that a harsh negotiating season will begin as the conflict moves from its electoral aspect into the closed negotiating rooms and deals among the elite. - from al Monitor

    The Jubouri told «Middle East» that «the transformations that took place between the blocks after the election, in terms of exit deputies from the bloc and joining that is contingent on convictions, projects and perhaps agendas, since there are candidates entered with the blocks are not convinced their projects, there are contrary , which is reflected on the results of the election and the subsequent political movement here and there ».

    It was al-Mutlaq, who owns a coalition of ten seats in parliament, announced, in a statement, yesterday, that the «Union project of national forces is nothing but a clear step to unify the visions and efforts and work in accordance with the national principles, and pave the way for genuine reconciliation gathering up the pieces back home, and opens up new avenues of fraternal relations between the components the Iraqi people, not to mention the re-Arab relations balanced regionally and internationally ».

    He said al-Mutlaq that «a number of political blocs and independent winners in the elections have decided to form a consortium of national forces, and that the Union is (*) expected announcement of the National Alliance for the candidate to head the next government to put forward a working paper represent the demands of our fans, before entering into any negotiations to form the next government».

    In the same vein, said Mishaan al-Jubouri, in his speech for the «Middle East» that «what was announced by al-Mutlaq reflects the position of the cluster, because we are among the blocks that have joined fully to this project, and our head portion of the block are united, and they block the solution, led by Jamal Karbouli block Diyala identity led by Salim al, while I got (*) splits in united blocs led by Osama Najafi and the National led by Iyad Allawi ».

    He pointed out that «the new alliance comprises 35 deputies so far, and the number is growing daily, and I expect that it will be the largest Sunni bloc that will negotiate the National Alliance and other blocs».

    (n) In response to a question on what is said about the fact that this alliance gives the green light to take over al-Maliki for a third term, Jubouri said that «talk a lot in this regard, but what we said and we say clearly that (*) we will negotiate with the National Alliance as the largest bloc from which the candidate for prime minister, so the ball in the court of the National Alliance, and what I want to say clearly is that (*) we accept the candidate chosen by the National Alliance », indicating that« our entitlements known concerning Bmhafezatna must be achieved, while talking about this catch or that have not caught, there is trying to ride the waves , and there are probably sold himself, but this is not of the Union of Forces certainly ».

    And on what is being said about this new alliance may split the unity of the Sunni, Jubouri said that «this alliance will be the Sunni bloc, the largest, and therefore is contrary to what is said about him, and will negotiate from a position of strength rather than distractions here and there, or attempted acquisition of a decision of the Sunni under this pretext or that ».

    In return, denied the leadership in the mass «united», Mohammed al-Khalidi, told the «Middle East» that «there is a cracked and split in the (united)» noting that «our discussions and understandings with the various political blocs in order to speed the formation of the government and prevent the third term of the owners, which is the same position that Tagafh major blocs such as the Kurdistan Alliance and the Supreme Council and the Sadrists, as well as national, led by Dr. Allawi and Ktltna », pointing out that« all the rumors is that is not true ».

    KRG risks isolation in Iraq by exporting oil through Turkey

    KRG risks isolation in Iraq by exporting oil through Turkey

    The announcement this month that the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) was exporting oil independently of the Iraqi central government was an attempt to impose a new reality on the ground before proceeding with negotiations on the formation of a new Iraqi government. This move, however, will have an impact on the negotiations that goes beyond relations between Baghdad and Erbil. It not only annoyed Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki — who described the move as an operation to steal oil — but it also had a negative effect among some of the forces that have good relations with the Kurds.

    Summary⎙ Print Erbil’s decision to export oil without consulting the Baghdad government could also increase Turkish leverage on the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

    Author Harith Hasan

    Posted May 30, 2014

    Translator(s)Tyler Huffman

    Suhad al-Obeidi, a member of parliament in the Mutahidoun bloc, which is led by parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi, said that no one can accept the unilateral export of oil by the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. It seems that a number of Sunni politicians, especially those representing disputed areas between Erbil and Baghdad such as Kirkuk, were put in an awkward position because the Kurds raised the ceiling of their demands and acted unilaterally. Some of these politicians told Al-Monitor that the Kurdish step came as a surprise and confused most of the Iraqi political forces. This is especially true since it was followed by statements from Arif Tayfour, a Kurdish leader and deputy speaker of parliament, calling for the annexation of the Kirkuk province to Iraqi Kurdistan, after the elections proved that the Kurds, who received a majority of parliamentary seats in the province, maintain a demographic majority in Kirkuk.

    Kurdish officials believe that the Maliki government did not adhere to the promises made to them when the current government was formed under the Erbil Agreement in April 2012. They feel the government has taken hard-line stances toward their demands, represented in recent months by halting payment of the Kurdistan region's budget due to disputes between the two sides over oil policies and contracts the region signed with international oil companies without consulting the Iraqi government. It appears the KRG has decided to put the bar high just before negotiations with other Iraqi forces to form a new government, and to impose a fait accompli through bypassing Baghdad's refusal for the region to export its oil independently. This is done in the hope that Maliki or any of his competitors’ need for Kurdish support will force them to adapt to the new situation.

    So far, it seems that this step has deepened the crisis in relations between Baghdad and Erbil. The Iraqi government announced on May 23 that it was prosecuting the Turkish government for violating an agreement between the two sides not to deal with any party other than the federal government when it comes to exporting oil through Turkish territory. Furthermore, Baghdad announced that the Iraqi Oil Ministry will boycott any party proven to import "looted" Iraqi oil from the Kurdistan region. In contrast, KRG Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani has threatened to take additional unilateral steps if Baghdad does not respond to the KRG's demands. He added that Baghdad has only delivered 10% of the region's share of the federal budget, which the Kurds stress should be 17%. As a kind of reassurance, most Kurdish statements indicate that Iraqi Kurdistan will adhere to treating the exported oil as Iraqi oil, and thus would only deduct the region's share of the proceeds and send the remaining amount to Baghdad. However, Mouayed Tayyib, the spokesman for the Kurdistan Alliance bloc, argued that the region would retain all revenue from the oil if Baghdad insisted on nonpayment of what the Kurds considered the dues owed to them by the Iraqi government.

    However, at a time when the KRG is directing blame at Maliki alone, to the extent of declaring that if he remains at his post this would lead to the division of Iraq, this step may be more harmful to his opponents than to Maliki himself. Both preceding and following the April 30 elections there was a lot of talk about the possibility of a front — comprising Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish powers — to prevent Maliki remaining in office for a third term. However, this Kurdish step might lead to the absence of a high level of coordination with Maliki's Shiite and Sunni adversaries in this potential front. The Kurds decision to announce an alliance comprising all Kurdish parties to negotiate with other powers was the beginning of a revival of the ethnic and sectarian alignments that the electoral competition seemed to have weakened. In light of the Kurds coming together in a single bloc that adopts a high bar of demands, it would be difficult for any Shiite group to ally with them individually, outside the framework of the broader Shiite umbrella. Especially since this would likely lead to accusations of treason and collusion with the KRG against Baghdad.

    It seems that the message sent by the Kurdish forces is that they prioritize the interests of the Kurdistan region over working to reform the Iraqi political system and offering long-term institutional visions to deal with the problems created by the previous period. This is confirmed by the threats of Kurdish officials to secede in the case that Baghdad does not respond to their demands, which can be interpreted as a sign that there is no long-term Kurdish commitment to the unity of Iraq, especially if the Kurdistan region is able to develop its resources to the point that it can independently bring in more revenue than what is provided to it by Baghdad. Meanwhile, some believe that this stance to independently export oil could open the door to serious bargaining between Maliki and Iraqi Kurdistan, to arrange their relationship in a different way that gives the region greater autonomy. Yet, it could also lead to a crisis for the KRG if it is established that no major coalition is ready to offer the concessions the Kurds want. At that time, the KRG will have to decide whether to back down from its hard-line stance or implement its promise to secede. If the latter happened, it may free the region of Baghdad's influence, but would make it — to an even greater extent — at the mercy of Ankara.

    BRAZIL was owed money by Iraq- Guess all is good on that front!

    Iraq may Resume Imports of Brazilian Beef

    Posted on 01 June 2014. Tags: beef, Brazil, food

    By John Lee.
    ANBA reports that a delegation of Iraqi government officials will visit Brazil from June 2nd to 12th to assess the sanitary conditions of Brazilian livestock and consider lifting the embargo on beef imports in place since 2012.
    They will see the beef shipping system at the Santos Port, pay visits to a laboratory that tests local beef for quality and to a Brazilian meat plant, and meet with officials from the Ministry of Agriculture.
    The chairman of the Association of Brazilian Beef Exporters (ABIEC), Antonio Jorge Camardelli, told the news agency:
    “At the end of the visit, they should probably complete the process of lifting the ban [on Brazilian beef]. Iraq is a crucial market for Brazil … Its [geographical] location affords it visibility. We did not see a reason for imports to be banned.”
    Iraq stopped purchasing Brazilian beef in December 2012, following the Brazilian Agriculture Ministry’s announcement that a cow bearing the causative agent of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) died in 2010. The animal died of other causes and did not develop the condition known as “mad cow disease.”
