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.
[* a source said in a statement to the Agency ((eighth day)) that there is an agreement semi-final between the U.S. and Iran to take on Ahmed Chalabi as prime minister for the next government as a compromise candidate.]
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 [ * HAS ] begin [ * BEGUN ] as the conflict moves from its electoral aspect into the closed negotiating rooms and deals among the elite. - - from al Monitor

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. "
06/08/2014 (00:01 pm) - Number of readings: 304 - number (3139) Badr talking about "candidate" is identical to the reference specifications .. The news about a couple of days to withdraw the nomination of al-Maliki officially
BAGHDAD / Mohammad Sabah
Hinted deputy from the Badr Organization (25 seats in the coalition of state law), that his bloc will not support the nomination of Nuri al-Maliki for a third term, because the Shiite parties keen to provide personal, "according to the opinion of reference Najaf," enjoys the admissibility national, and pave the way for political change, what confirms loss Maliki is one of the most prominent allies, after Hussain al-Shahristani told (about 25 seats, also in state law) partners that is identical with the opinion of the religious authority, which means the loss of support within Maliki's bloc by about half.
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.
