It is EVICT MALIKI DAY + FORTY ( 40 ) or " E - M DAY + 40 "
PREVIOUSLY AND CONTINUING
" ..... 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
Generally, all are " waiting for the National Alliance to name its candidate, formally , to start negotiate with him. "

Relations between the province and the center of some tension, especially after the Kurdistan region to export oil through Turkey without the approval of the central government.
The Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for the Middle East and Iraq Bert Makourk had said at the end of last month that "the United States does not support the export of oil from any area in Iraq without the approval of his government federal, we were informed all parties that any work of this kind creates a lot of problems. "
He revealed Makourk for "his proposal to resolve the dispute submitted to the governments of the Kurdistan region and the federal requirement that the region receives its share of Iraqi oil sales every month directly."
*** " HIS PROPOSAL " would seem to be Makourk. Direct payment of the Kurds share should work unless the share amount is in dispute, Baghdad is disbursing or the Kurds are trying to recoup unpaid monies through a higher percentage ? I believe that the issues are more complex unless and until I read where the dialogue includes distinctions regarding old oil fields and new oil fields, etc.
