"..... 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.

The Iraqi Supreme Court Certifies the 30 April General Election Result
Posted by Reidar Visser on Monday, 16 June 2014 19:54
It’s official: The provisional result of Iraq’s 30 April general election, published last month, has been certified by the federal supreme court.
In the IHEC statement to this effect, there is a caveat. 4 seat winners have not been approved, and won’t be approved until they have been cleared of charges relating to serious crime cases against them. Pending settlement of the court cases, their membership in parliament will remain pending, and no replacement deputies will be appointed. Whereas this may sound somewhat messy, it is actually what happened also in 2010, when 2 seat winners were provisionally excluded. Back then, it took longer for parliament to reconvene than for the judicial authorities to settle one of the cases (and one candidate was voluntarily substituted by another candidate from his bloc), so no procedural problems emerged.
With the general political climate in Iraq approaching boiling point, questions will inevitably pertain to the political affiliations of those 4 that were excluded. 3 of them come from a single list, the Sunni, pro-Nujayfi list that ran in Diyala province: Salim al-Jibburi, Raad al-Dahlaki and Umar al-Humayri. They have all been in various forms of conflict with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, and Jibburi (once an Iraqi Islamic Party member who cooperated with the first Maliki government) and Humayri (ex governor of Diyala ousted by Maliki allies) most bitterly so.
Urgent .. Federal Court ratified the call candidates [Jubouri and Aldhlki]
Wednesday, June 26, 2014 12:20
[Baghdad - where]
The Federal Supreme Court ratified the names of candidates for the [Diyala identity] [Salim al] and [Raad Aldhlki].
A spokesman for the Supreme Judicial Authority Abdul Sattar Bayrakdar told all of Iraq [where] on Thursday that "the court has ratified today the names of the candidates [Jubouri and Aldhlki after resolving lawsuits filed against them and Nbarothma of the charges followed .. http://translate.googleusercontent.c...chW-a1wAz23wkw
Still, before running to conclusions about another politicized court decision in Iraq, consider the fourth excluded candidate: Abbas Jabir al-Khuzaie, a seat winner in Qadisiyya province for Maliki’s own State of Law list. Khuzaie is a local politician from the Qadisiyya council who was once with the secular Iraqiyya before defecting to State of Law in 2011. He was then with the Independents bloc of Hussein al-Shahristani and may still be a member of that bloc subunit. Still, despite ongoing internal rivalry in State of Law, it seems unlikely that Maliki would fabricate an exclusion from his own rank in a situation where the loyalty of every new single Iraqi deputy is meticulously being monitored in the contest to form the biggest parliament bloc and supply the next premier candidate.
The certification of the election result opens the door for government formation: The Iraqi president (or his acting deputy) must issue a call for the Iraqi parliament to convene within 15 days, i.e. at the end of June. Theoretically, parliament will then elect its speaker, and, within a month, a new president who will then charge the candidate of the largest bloc in parliament to form a government.
For Iraqi politicians, despite the current crisis, the parliamentary government formation process is likely to remain the main political track going forward. It is a problem, therefore, that much US rhetoric on conditions for aid to the Iraqi government seem focused on ideas about some sort of national reconciliation initiative that would precede the delivery of further assistance. It is very hard to see how that would fit in with the Iraqi government formation logic. Whereas there has been much talk among Americans about imposing conditionality on future military assistance in Iraq, US rhetoric has been disconcertingly void of specific proposals for measures that would satisfy them. On the other hand, there is no lack of American suggestions for favourite cabinet line-ups that could be imposed, possibly even with Iranian support. Some of this thinking seems to belong to the era of the CPA in 2003–04, rather than in today’s situation.
Meanwhile, ISIS continues its savagery, the Kurds consolidate their quasi-independence, and Maliki for once actually has an excuse for drumming up state-of-emergency rhetoric.

Iran is seeking to incite Kurdish Barzani to prevent the establishment of a Kurdish state

Kuwaiti newspaper - BAGHDAD - Mohammed Basil
Began the Iranian ambassador in Baghdad, Hassan Danaii political meetings in the province of Sulaymaniyah, the second largest city in the province of Kurdistan, in northern Iraq, which shares the influence of the party, "the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK)," led by President Jalal Talabani and the movement of "change", headed by Mustafa Amin Norhervan.
Conducted Ambassador Danaii talks with senior leaders in both parties, focused on two main axes: the first is related endeavors Iranian to win the position of the two Kurdish parties in support of the third term of Nuri al-Maliki to head the next government, where you do not want the Iranian leadership that connects the Kurds between the issue of separation and independence between the issue of the survival of Maliki in power, and considers that this linkage is a strategic error committed by the Kurdish leadership, headed by Massoud Barzani.
The second axis is the focus of the talks, relates mainly file Declaration of an independent Kurdish state in which it operates, "the Kurdistan Democratic Party," headed by Barzani to be translated into reality in the next few months, where the ambassador warned Iranian Kurdish leaders from the consequences of large that will result from this work, especially reflections on the relations between Iran and Iraqi Kurds.
Kurdish sources said high-'s "policy," said Ambassador Danaii wants of the two Kurdish parties adopt different attitudes about Barzani on the organization of a referendum Kurdish independence, which asked them to guide the explicit threats to Barzani to Sulaymaniyah will not be part of any referendum on an independent Kurdish state and that it is committed to the Iraqi constitution within the self-determination within a federal system. He also asked the parties to withdraw from the Kurdistan Regional Government if Barzani resorted to a referendum without prior political consensus between the various main Kurdish forces.
The sources added that Danaii told Barham Salih and Qobad Talabani and Hero Talabani and Necmettin cream of the Party "Union" and leader of the "change" Norhervan Mustafa that Tehran would not recognize any independent Kurdish state, and that the crossing Haj Omran, which connects Sulaimaniya Iran will close most likely once the declaration of the State, and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is considered the move a direct threat to the national security of Iran, because this is a Kurdish state will have special relations with the enemies of the Islamic Republic, and that the party "Free Life," the Kurdish Iranian opposition, which is active on the border between the province of Kurdistan and Iran will invest statehood independent Kurdish north Iraq to strengthen its attacks against the Revolutionary Guard "forces", and therefore can step Barzani that pitting million Kurds in Iran, numbering more than 6 million, to join the insurrection against the Tehran regime.
She explained to Kurdish sources, the problem of Iran with an independent Kurdish state in northern Iraq, it will be closer to the Sunnis in Iraq, and this is confusing the balance of power with the government of the Shiite alliance headed by al-Maliki, especially with the continuing battles with Sunni insurgent groups in the provinces of North and West, and thus will be these groups Taking advantage of such a state of military and logistical aspects, these data may be in agreement with Barzani so that Sunni insurgents control of Baghdad, ending the reign of al-Maliki.
The sources confirmed that the bet Iranian Shiite Kurds, known as Faili would not work because they do not represent a political force and human geography can obstruct the independent Kurdish state, and that most of them have orientations enthusiastic for independence and avoid any temptation Kurdish - Kurdish, under any circumstances, because they have suffered so much in previous decades of exclusion and marginalization and subjected to various kinds of mischief, and they know the meaning of an independent state for them.
The sources close to Barzani that the Iranian move unprecedented against a referendum Kurdish independence is a dangerous indicator may mean further politically indicative that Iran might be willing to support the Maliki government or any government other Shiite in Baghdad to carry out military action against the Kurdish state, including attacks on infrastructure in this state to force the Kurdish people to do an internal revolt against Barzani and the leaders of his party who have by-step separation.
The sources confirmed that the Iranian regime would freeze all trade and economic relations with the Kurdish state, as will be directed to intensify the activities of the intelligence and security hostile to the stability of this putative state, and possibly opens the lines with extremist organizations, including "Ansar al-Sunna" near "the base", which has been active on the border between Kurdistan and Iran until 2003.
*** Increasingly I have, I think, a better appreciation and understanding of the complexities posed by the prospects of a sovereign state of Kurdistan. Moreover, I suppose one of the " elephants in the room " is any developing relationship between Israel and Kurdistan or for that matter, the U.S. and the Kurds, which for Iran would place an enemy upon their border. ***

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – In a letter to the people of Iraq on Tuesday, Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani denounced accusations by Baghdad against the Kurds and their alleged role in the current turmoil.
“Some people today are inciting anti-Kurdish voices under different pretexts,” said Barzani. “They have launched a deceitful campaign against the Kurds and they are using state money for this kind of propaganda.”
In recent weeks several Iraqi leaders, mainly from the State of Law coalition of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his Dawa Party, have appeared on Iraqi media and accused the Kurds of “being part of a plot to divide Iraq.”
Barzani said that Maliki himself, and his bid for a third term, is the likely cause of Iraq’s undoing.
“If Maliki insists on a third term, then Iraq will be driven towards a precipice and no one can predict what will happen,” he said. “And no decision will bring the country back to its previous state.”
The Kurdish president said that the Iraqi premier has violated the constitution in many ways and on many occasions.
“Abiding by the constitution is the only guarantee of Iraq’s integrity,” Barzani said. “The one who violates the constitution should blame himself,” he added. “All these years, we have only been asking for the implementation of the constitution.”
Kurdish leaders have long accused Maliki and his government of ignoring the constitution, particularly articles on an oil and gas law, “disputed territories” that are now under Kurdish control and Erbil’s share of the national budget.
At the end of his message, Barzani said the Kurds maintain the right to hold a referendum on self-determination.
“The Kurdish people will not relinquish their right to a referendum and they will make their decision,” he said.
Last week, Barzani asked the Kurdish parliament to set a date for a referendum on independence, as Iraq slides closer toward a full civil war under a jihadi-led insurgency, getting the ball rolling on Kurdish independence and the break-up of Iraq.
