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.

A June onslaught on Sunni Arab areas north and west of Baghdad, led by the jihadist Islamic State group, has brought Iraq to the brink of breakup, with the government struggling to assert any authority beyond its Shiite power base.
Parliament elected Masum, who served as the first prime minister of Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region more than two decades ago, by an overwhelming majority of 211 votes to 17.
He had been almost guaranteed the job after Kurdish parties struck a late-night deal to support him.
Under an unofficial power-sharing deal, Iraq’s Kurds traditionally get the post of president.
The move could pave the way for a deal on the much more powerful post of prime minister.

Badr Organization declares its commitment to the decision of the National Alliance for the prime minister post
Mon Jul 28 2014 23:32 | (Voice of Iraq)
Baghdad - where
Announced the Badr Organization, led by Transport Minister Hadi al-Ameri, its commitment to the decision of the National Alliance for the post of prime minister.
He said the first deputy secretary general of the Badr Organization, Abdul Karim Younes, told all of Iraq [where], "The National Alliance, previously was the biggest blocs in the last session in 2010 and is now the largest bloc in the current session."
In response to the invitation of reference for the selection of the best and not to cling to positions, Yunus said that "there is a fundamental point for the selection of the elements of the government positions, is that available to have an element Ulkipa experience and sincerely to the people of Iraq," explaining that "the reference was not directed her words to someone Maliki particular they are always talking in general, and not particularly calls to the interests of the country. "
He added that "there is a mechanism within the National Alliance for the selection of figures for the positions taken by the coalition government and we are bound by the mechanics of it," adding that "with the opinion of the organization, which calls for the reference to be there figures efficient and able to run the country properly."
The supreme religious authority, Ali al-Sistani called for the formation of a new government within 15 days and not to cling to office officials have formed, in reference to the insistence of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on the third term in the presidency.
The Web site of the Office of the supreme religious authority Ali al-Husseini al-Sistani, the official said, "Sheikh Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalai, a certified top Shi'ite cleric, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, said during a Friday sermon in Karbala [110 km south of Baghdad] need to form a new government within a period of time not to exceed duration Constitutional amounting to 15 days, and not to cling to their positions by the officials, "in an apparent reference to the current Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who insists on running for a third term.
And rejects most of the members of the National Alliance and the Kurdistan Alliance and the Federation of Iraqi forces Maliki's nomination for a third term and looking to provide the National Alliance candidate for prime minister for being the largest bloc in the Iraqi parliament.
* The following is a reference to the " by-laws " of the NA which I have been referencing, "there is a mechanism within the National Alliance for the selection of figures for the positions taken by the coalition government and we are bound by the mechanics of it," . *
and ACCORDING TO VISSER :
" Unlike the procedures for electing the president of the republic (for which a separate law with elaborate procedures exists) the nomination of the Iraqi prime minister is governed entirely by the Iraqi constitution. As a result, the selection of the prime minister candidate is arguably the most sensitive and unpredictable stage of the Iraqi government formation process. " http://gulfanalysis.wordpress.com/20...new-president/
" ... it is for the new president to identify the largest bloc and ask its PM candidate to form the next government. Whereas the pan-Shiite alliance has declared itself the largest bloc repeatedly, there is a case to be made that as long as it does not have an agreed PM candidate it doesn’t exist in a way that is interesting to the Iraqi government formation and that the State of Law bloc of PM Maliki – whose candidate is Maliki – is the biggest bloc. It is being reported that Masum will meet soon with the Shiite alliance to clarify these things. Unless a PM candidate emerges, Maliki could legitimately complain to the federal supreme court that Masum is wasting his time with a non-existent political alliance. http://gulfanalysis.wordpress.com/20...new-president/
" The biggest bloc in the Iraqi parliament that also has a PM candidate is currently State of Law, whose candidate of course is Nuri al-Maliki. Members of this bloc, including Maliki himself, are now explicitly demanding the right to form a government, separate from the rest of the putative pan-Shiite alliance. Unless a bigger bloc comes up with a candidate before the constitutional timeline for PM nomination expires on 8 August (or a few days later if holidays are counted), President Fuad Masum has a constitutional duty to charge Maliki with forming his third government, regardless of whether he has a realistic chance of reaching an absolute majority when he presents it to parliament for approval or a second attempt by another candidate will be needed.

and A COMMENT FROM VISSER RE : PM"S. Question : All names that given or promoted or some western suggestions made about them I believe have similar if not same Maliki problems.
RV, do you agree with this?
In your view is there away Iraq could get new face as PM instead iof these lingering four or five names?
Answer ( Visser ) : I don’t see any sudden surprises here. Tareq Najm is the least known of the 4-5 names that recur (others being Abd al-Mahdi, Chalabi & Shahristani) and some will possibly give him the benefit of doubt compared to the others. With Abd al-Mahdi I would expect a return to CPA-era politics (“governing council”) with no clearly defined centre of power. Chalabi and Shahristani also lack substantial party bases but would likely be more prone to try to repeat the Maliki model of centralising power, probably with little success though.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Yezidi Kurds across Europe condemned attacks by the militants of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) on their towns in northern Iraq and the displacement of thousands of families.
“I am very concerned,” said Dawood Pasha Khalaf from Sweden, whose family lives in Shengal, where Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are locked in intense counteroffensives to recapture that town and Zumar, which fell to the IS early Sunday.
“The ISIS takes women, and people have fled to the mountains without food or drink,” said Khalaf.
The fighting west of Mosul has reportedly displaced tens of thousands of civilians and caused “a human tragedy,” the top UN official in Iraq said, as a dozen people were already reported dead from hunger and illness.
As IS fighters overran the town of Shengal on Sunday, local residents fled towards the Kurdistan Region while many took refuge on a nearby mountain.
Isolated from all help and rescue, hunger and thirst took their toll on the escapees on the arid mountain. By the end of the day on Sunday 15 people had died and were buried nearby.
Yezidis in Denmark and Germany are planning demonstrations to call attention to the plight of their people in Shengal and Zumar, who are especially targeted by the militants for their different religious beliefs.
Gulla Khalaf, a Yezidi in Denmark, told Rudaw she was concerned for her family who fled after the town fell to the militants. She said some relatives were captured by IS, and that one family member was killed on Sunday and two wounded.
“In addition, my cousin and her nine children fled to the mountains, where they do not have water or anything,” said Gulla. “They will not risk going to the city because ISIS is there.”
Hadi Shingali, a well-known Yezidi singer in Germany, said the situation of his people “is like a nightmare.” He called on European Kurds to mobilize against the IS. “We will not just sit and watch!”
Delberin Khalaf, another Yezidi from Shengal now living in Germany, said he did not want the Yezidis to suffer the fate of Iraq’s Christians, whose communities have been decimated by persecutions, killings and emigration.
“Before ISIS slaughtered Christians; now it is our turn,” she told Rudaw. “We must, through demonstrations, make the world aware of this.”
The spokesperson for the Yezidi Spiritual Movement, Hadi Babasheikh, told Rudaw that the situation of the Yezidis “is getting worse and worse.”
He added that many Yezidi women have been taken hostage and sexually abused by the Islamic militants.
Babasheikh said he had met with the US and British consuls in Erbil on Monday, urging them to come to the rescue of his community.
Mir Tahsin Beg, the spiritual leader of all Yezidis around the world, called on Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani on Monday to allow Yezidi youth to join the fight against IS.
“I sent a message to President Barzani and asked him to open doors to recruitment so that Yezidi Kurds can take up arms,” he told Rudaw by phone from Germany.
Beg called on the Kurdistan Region, Iraq and the international community to stand by the Yezidis.
“The Yezidis live in a terrible situation and we want to change that,” he said. “We want the Peshmerga to come to the area and rescue us from this bitter situation.”
“The ISIS is destroying the people. They behead children and take our women,” added Beg, who is in Germany for medical treatment and had an operation last week.
Rojin Khalil Sileman returned to Germany from Shengal last week.
“I have sat in front of the TV and the phone all day,” lamented Sileman, who has a brother who is a Peshmerga and involved in the fighting.
“People tell me that they cannot take it anymore; even our holy sites are attacked.”
Hundreds of Missing Yezidis Feared Dead, says Village Chief
Elias said that unless help reaches them soon “the lives of 10,000 Yezidis on the mountain is at grave risk.”
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—A tribal chief said he is deeply worried about the fate of more than 2,000 Yezidi villagers who were believed to have returned to their village on Sunday after receiving assurances from the Islamic militants.
Khalaf Elias, chief of the Issa clan said that local Arabs had told him that the Yezidi families had returned to their village of Wardi, but that he wasn’t sure of their fate or whereabouts.
“Through local Arabs the ISIS asked the Wardi village chief to let his people return to their homes and that they will be safe,” Elias explained. “They returned and now their fate is unknown.”
Elias who has taken refuge on a rocky mountain with hundreds of other Yezidi families told Rudaw by phone that the militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) had captured and taken away more than 50 Yezidi families.
“What I know now is that all those families have been killed,” he reported.
Elias said that unless help reaches them soon “the lives of 10,000 Yezidis on the mountain is at grave risk.”
According to this tribal chief, the Islamic militants who advanced into Zumar, Shangal and other Yezidi villages have an official decree to annihilate the Yezidi population of the region.
“Thousands of Yezidis are stuck on this mountain and the ISIS can come to them at any moment,” he said. “We don’t have any weapon to defend ourselves.”
On Sunday afternoon thousands of Kurdish Peshmerga forces were dispatched to the frontline at Shangal, armed with advanced weapons.
Anwar Haji Osman from the Peshmerga Ministry said that their forces will soon deal the ISIS “a deadly blow,”
“This is not only talk, people will see it for themselves soon,” he said.
