    Iraq parliament elects Kurdish politician Fuad Masum as new president

    KURDISH politician Fuad Masum has become the new president of Iraq, in a step towards forming a new government that visiting UN chief Ban Ki-moon says must be inclusive for the country to survive.

    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.



    Iraqi Prime Minister-Designate Starts Talks on Government Formation

    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.

    Maliki Steps Down, Supports New Prime Minister

    By RUDAW

    BAGHDAD—In a televised address on Thursday evening Nouri Maliki withdrew his bid for the post of prime minister in favor of Haider al-Abadi who was endorsed by the Shiite National Alliance earlier this week.

    “I withdraw my candidacy for prime minister in favor of my brother Haider al-Abadi to safeguard the unity and stability of Iraq and the political process,” said Maliki.

    According to Rudaw sources, leaders of the Dawa Party had held hours of extensive talks with Maliki to persuade him to step down.

    Maliki who served as prime minister for eight years lost the support of Iraqi politicians and the international community, particularly the United States and Iran.

    In his speech, the former prime minister defended his time in office and praised his achievements.

    Maliki asked Iraqi security and armed forces to stay in their positions “and defend the country against terrorism.”

    On Monday, Iraqi president Fuad Masum tasked al-Abadi with forming a new government four months after the country’s general elections.

    The presidential move was welcomed by Iraq’s Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish groups. Washington, Tehran and the United Nations also backed al-Abadi's nomination.

    Initially Maliki rejected the president’s decision, describing it “violation of the constitution” while there was fear of hostiles from security forces loyal to Maliki.

    An official source told Rudaw that Maliki is expected to remain active in the political process and that he has demanded to be granted the post of the vice president.

    Can Abadi be the PM that Iraq needs?

    Iraq's new prime minister has to move fast to bring unity to the country.

    Last updated: 15 Aug 2014 14:56

    Sajad Jiyad

    Haider al-Abadi was nominated to form a new government on August 11. [EPA]

    On August 14 Iraq witnessed another moment of peaceful transition of power, in a region that is unfamiliar with it. Nouri al-Maliki, who has held the post since 2006, and winner of the elections in April, decided to withdraw from his pursuit of a third term and backed another candidate from his own Dawa party, Haider al-Abadi, who was already nominated by a large alliance of parties and politicians.

    It was at times an acrimonious process, with Maliki insisting that he was the only legal nominee for PM and threatening legal action against President Masum for nominating Abadi in a move he called a “constitutional violation”. But in the end the overwhelming support for a change in the premiership, both at home and abroad, convinced Maliki that his time was up.

    Maliki retains leadership of his party and the State of Law coalition that has over 90 MPs in Iraq’s parliament, meaning he will remain a significant force in Iraqi politics. But the focus now is on his successor who comes into the role in arguably tougher conditions than Maliki did in 2006, at the height of the sectarian strife that ravaged the country. The continued threat of the Islamic State group, manifest in its capabilities to conduct ethnic cleansing almost at will, is the greatest single threat to the newly democratic Iraq since its creation in 2003.

    While Abadi has never held the highest political offices in Iraq before, he will assume the premiership with unprecedented support from regional and international powers. The US, Iran, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, have all expressed backing for the designation of Abadi as PM and urged the quick formation of a new government. A reset button seems to have been pressed by Iraq’s Kurdish and Sunni Arab parties with regards to Abadi, after they had a troubled relationship with his predecessor. There are encouraging signs that all parties will take part in the new government and present a united front against the war with the Islamic State group.

    But there are several fundamental problems that the new PM will have to contend with in addition to the military battles that Iraq currently struggles with. Firstly, he will have to face the fractious nature of Iraq’s imposed unity governments that are based on unwritten sectarian quotas, meaning that disputes and gridlock are never far away.

    Secondly, he will have to continue the battle to weed out corruption and incompetence, in all state institutions including the military, that paralyse the government’s ability to run the country properly.

    Thirdly, he will have to address the grievances and aspirations of the government’s constituent communities; the Shia Arabs in the oil-rich but under-developed South, the Sunni Arabs in the Western and Northern provinces who have suffered the effects of terrorism and poor representation, and the Kurds in the autonomous Kurdish region that hope for independence after a history of conflict with Baghdad. He will also have to promote the inclusion of the numerous ethnic and religious minorities who face an existential threat and also little political influence.

    Daunting is the challenge, and Abadi is an untested leader in an unenviable position. But he brings some notable characteristics to the job that will serve him better than his predecessor. He is a technocrat, speaks good English, and is willing to share decision-making and rely on professional advice.

    He does not have the large circle of “friends” and advisors around him that isolated his predecessor, nor does he have much appetite to allow for one. He is not overly influenced by Iran or any other foreign country, nor has he made any enemies among Iraq’s wide spectrum of politicians. In fact he is amiable and understated in a manner similar to that of the other heads of office, Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jibouri and President Fuad Masum.

    Being amiable is not enough though in a country being torn apart by extremist violence and sectarian hate. Even if foreign intervention stalls the Islamic State group and provides relief to those facing massacre, the unrefined nature of democracy in Iraq may render the most capable leader ineffective. The sectarian overtones that dominate internal debates, and inform foreign powers when addressing Iraq, in addition to the concentration of power in the hands of elites often distant from citizens, are reasons to be pessimistic. That Iraq in its entirety - every single ethnic and religious group - is under attack by the Islamic State group may unwittingly be the factor that pulls Iraq together, and that forces the PM and the rest to find solutions to Iraq’s many problems.
    But time is not on Abadi’s side and whatever optimism there is will quickly evaporate when the stark reality of what Iraq has become begins to bear over him and the people. He needs to form a new government quickly, filling it with the right people for the right posts and not according to which party or sect they are from. The Islamic State group is at the doorstep and have one foot through the doorway already; any more failures by Iraq’s politicians is an invitation for them to come right in.

    Is Haider al-Abadi capable of leading Iraq? And even if he is, can he do anything to prevent the cycle of violence that has plagued Iraq for decades? The answers need to come soon or risk becoming irrelevant.

    Iraq 'doomed' if new prime minister fails to bridge sectarian divide

    The Guardian: Iraq 'doomed' if new prime minister fails to bridge sectarian divide

    Saturday, 16 August 2014 11:52

    Baghdad (AIN) –The British Guardian Newspaper quoted senior Iraqi politicians that Iraq risks being torn apart by warring sects unless Haider al-Ebadi, the new prime minister, can gather the country's estranged factions behind him and form a government.

    "This is all or nothing," said one senior Iraqi official who is hoping for a senior ministry within the new cabinet. "None of us are sure that he can do it. And if he can't, we are doomed."

    Nouri al-Maliki, Abadi's predecessor, announced he was stepping down late on Thursday having previously rejected repeated calls for his resignation. Iran, Saudi Arabia, the United Nations and the US were united in welcoming the move. "Today, Iraqis took another major step forward in uniting their country," Susan Rice, the US national security adviser, said.

    But while Abadi has won broad international and regional support, he faced the formidable task of convincing Iraqi citizens that they retained a stake within the state's current borders, regional observers said.

    A push by Islamic State (Isis) militants through northern Iraq to the border with the Kurdish region has alarmed the Baghdad government, drawn the first US air strikes since the end of American occupation in 2001 and sent tens of thousands of Yazidis and Christians fleeing.

    A Yazidi lawmaker and two Kurdish officials claimed yesterday that Isis insurgents had killed 80 members of Iraq's Yazidi minority in a village in the country's north. "They arrived in vehicles and they started their killing this afternoon," senior Kurdish official Hoshiyar Zebari told Reuters. "We believe it's because of their creed: convert or be killed."

    A Yazidi lawmaker and another senior Kurdish official also said the killings had occurred and that the women of the village had been kidnapped. The reports remain unconfirmed.



    Abadi in a sensitive stage as he tries to form a new government in a country with daily bombings, kidnappings and executions.

    The man must rein in Shiite militias accused of committing acts of kidnapping and killing of the year and to convince the Sunni minority that they will get a larger share of power.
