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.
Haydar al-Abbadi Is the New Iraq PM Candidate
Posted by Reidar Visser on Monday, 11 August 2014 13:48
Today, what remains of the pan-Shiite National Alliance formally presented Haydar al-Abbadi of the Daawa party as their PM candidate. Abbadi will be charged by President Fuad Masum to replace the current PM, Nuri al-Maliki.
The political realities behind this move can be summarized as follows. For some weeks, pressure has been building inside Maliki’s State of Law coalition to have him changed. Finally today, factions led by Haydar al-Abbadi of the Daawa and Hussein al-Shahristani, the current deputy PM, broke with Maliki to nominate Abbadi for PM. Early reports suggests 38 Daawa MPs and 12 members of the Shahristani bloc abandoned Maliki, leaving him with the backing of only around 45 members of the original 95-member State of Law bloc. It is worth noting that the traditionally pro-Iranian Badr organization has not been enumerated among the 128 or so supporters of Abbadi.
Constitutionally and legally, today’s developments also clear the air. Until yesterday, Maliki could plausibly plead the case that the president should have charged him with forming the government before the official deadline expired. However, today’s action by the Shiite alliance showed that Maliki’s claim to represent the largest bloc no longer has any basis, because State of Law has disintegrated. Accordingly, Maliki’s promise to bring the case before the Iraqi federal supreme court will be of academic interest only. Any attempt by him to challenge the nomination through other means than the court will be profoundly anti-democratic.
Haydar al-Abbadi is a former finance minister who is well liked by groups outside the Daawa and State of Law, who elected him as deputy speaker for the new parliament earlier. He will now have 30 days to present his cabinet for approval by the Iraqi parliament with an absolute majority.

Meet Haider al-Abadi, the man named Iraq’s new prime minister
Iraq's president on Monday named Haider al-Abadi as the country's new prime minister, an appointment that came amid speculation that the embattled incumbent, Nouri al-Maliki, would cling to power even after his country had dissolved into chaos and the United States made it clear that it would not support him as leader anymore.
But who is Abadi? Born in Baghdad in 1952, Abadi was educated at the University of Baghdad and later received a doctorate from the University of Manchester in Britain. He lived in Britain for many years after his family was targeted by Saddam Hussein's Baathist regime. He was trained as an electrical engineer, but he entered politics after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. He became minister of communications in the Iraqi Governing Council in September 2003, then was a key adviser to Maliki in Iraq's first post-invasion elected government. Just weeks ago, he was elected deputy speaker of parliament, and he has been considered a contender for prime minister in the past two elections.
The bigger question, however, is whether Abadi will be able to overcome the challenges confronting Iraq more successfully than Maliki. Like Maliki, he's a Shiite Muslim and is a member of the ruling State of Law coalition. One of the chief criticisms of Maliki was that he entrenched Iraq's sectarian politics, filling the government with Shiite politicians and limiting Sunni and Kurdish power.
Earlier this summer, Abadi gave a striking interview to the Huffington Post's Mehdi Hasan in which he discussed the possibility of Iranian intervention in the fight against the Islamic State, the Sunni extremist group that has taken over vast swaths of Iraq.
"We are waiting for the Americans to give us support," he said in the June interview. "If U.S. air strikes [happen], we don't need Iranian air strikes. If they don't, then we may need Iranian strikes." Abadi has also had differences with Iraq's Kurdish community at points: Last year he warned that a dispute over Iraqi Kurdistan's oil exports could lead to the "disintegration" of the country, and he was criticized by Kurdish politicians during the negotiations over the 2013 budget.
However, Abadi does seem to be aware that the Iraqi government and security forces have made serious mistakes in the current conflict. He told Hasan that the government needs to listen to stories of the "excesses" of the security forces to decide how to respond. And he was clear that Iraq needed to avoid being dragged into the type of war the Islamic State clearly desires.
"We have to be careful not to become involved in a sectarian war," he told Hasan. "Shias are not against Sunnis and Sunnis are not against Shias."
Reidar Visser, an academic expert on Iraqi politics, says that although Abadi comes from the same political faction as Maliki, he enjoys much broader support, especially from Kurds and Sunnis.
Part of this is his more distinguished background. "Many of the elites from the governing council-era consider him one of their own in terms of a prestigious family background, whereas Maliki was seen as more of an upstart from humble origins," Visser notes in an e-mail. "Things like that count in the (old-fashioned and traditional) Iraqi establishment."
President Fouad Massoum, a Kurd, seemed confident Monday that Abadi could lead the country. “Now the Iraqi people are in your hands,” he said as he shook Abadi's hand. Now Iraq waits to see whether Maliki will acquiesce.
MOSCOW, August 12 (RIA Novosti) - Prime Minister-designate Haider Abadi began talks with the parties of the country's parliament on the formation of a new government, the Sky News Arabia TV channel reported Tuesday. Abadi confirmed that he is ready to discuss "not only the formation of a new government, but also a general policy of overcoming constitutional, political and economic issues in Iraq."
The prime minister-designate called on all political forces "that respect the constitution and democratic practices to unite in the face of challenges Iraq needs to resolve."
According to the channel, the talks are to last for a month.
On Monday, Iraqi President Fuad Masum officially asked Abadi to form a new government. However, outgoing Prime Minister Nouri Maliki did not agree with Abadi's nomination and said he would take the case to court.
Maliki accused Masum of violating the constitution by failing to name a prime minister within 15 days. When President Masum was appointed on July 24, he had an initial 15-day period to go through the political process of appointing a new prime minister.
The process was jeopardized by Maliki's decision to seek a third term and reports that his Islamic Dawa Party had refused to cooperate in the formation of a new government.
The nomination of Abadi as prime minister-designate has been supported by the United States, the European Union and Iran.

The Silver Lining in the Dark Clouds Over Kurdistan
The Silver Lining in the Dark Clouds Over Kurdistan By DAVID ROMANO
The threat from IS did not just rally the West behind the Kurds, however. It did what no amount of conferences and political meetings could accomplish – it got Kurdish political parties and armed forces from all four parts of Kurdistan united and working together. The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) sent its guerrillas from Turkish (North) Kurdistan, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) sent is fighters from Syrian (Western) Kurdistan, and various Kurdish parties from Iranian (Eastern) Kurdistan (PJAK, Komala, KDPI) sent their forces to the IS front as well. This is a historic first for the Kurds, although it will no doubt worry their enemies. From most accounts, the PKK/PYD/PJAK forces proved to be the best fighters, having more recent combat experience and discipline than any of the others. As the struggle against ISIS continues, the KRG’s peshmerga will no doubt gain experience and improve as well, and they already put up a stronger fight against better armed IS fighters than the Iraqi army ever did in June.
The biggest silver lining of all, however, has to be the nature of the Kurds’ enemy this time around. The Islamic State’s absolute depravity, utterly reprehensible outrages, its seemingly limitless barbarity, the horrors it itself publicizes in grizzly video after video, make it the perfect enemy. Who could not support the Kurds and their efforts to save the Yezidis, the Christians and others from these monstrosities? It also helps that the IS pretty much declared war on America, moderate Sunnis and the whole non-Sunni world, of course. Under such circumstances, the old fears about Kurdish ambitions for statehood and the disintegration of Iraq appear much less important than finding someone, anyone, able and willing to put a stop to the IS menace.
It seems that the first rays of sunlight to pierce the dark clouds will come from Kurdistan.
“The Kurdish government will do all in its power to help the refugees and provide for them what they need,” Barzani said.
He met with the governors of Erbil and Duhok to address the tens of thousands of Yezidi and Christian civilians who have arrived in the autonomous Kurdistan Region just over the past several days, fleeing the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) militants that especially target the non-Muslim minorities.
The fund announced on Wednesday added to $15 million allocated last week by the Kurdish government.
“In the coming days there will be more help coming to the refugees,” Barzani promised.
The Kurdistan Region is currently hosting more than a million refugees, among them Syrian Kurds, Iraqi Arabs, Yezidis and Christians.

She pointed out that "the mandate of President Fuad Masum, to the National Alliance's candidate Haidar al-Abadi is a constitutional and legal, because the President of the Republic gave the biggest bloc,(the National Alliance) sufficient time to choose a candidate, therefore, the objection to this assignment by some does not work" .
