Abbadi seeks to secure a parliamentary majority preventing opponents from dragging his confidence
At a time when it faces resistance from his own party, Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abbadi, struggling to get the support of the political tremor says it's crucial for response set daash.
In an attempt to regain momentum after Parliament voted last week to prevent the Government from passing important reforms Abbadi without House approval, continue weekend with Al-Ibadi religious reference which previously supported his quest to fight corruption. But he returned from meetings with Senior clerics in Najaf without securing the support of the effects of possible further isolation while trying to stave off the threat of disgruntled deputies vote on the confidence motion.
Abbadi did not meet with Sistani, who was supported by but it seems that his patience has run out as a result of the slow pace of reform. Analyst Ahmed Younis "it seems Al-Abadi as if he walked into a minefield, he is now obliged to work in a manner satisfactory to all parties".
History suggests that he should proceed with caution, his predecessor, Al-Maliki also did not consult before decisions are taken, was sidelined last summer after his resentment and his sons, and America and Iran.
And supported religious institution and power poles in Iraq give Abadi as Prime Minister after a consensus that has a chance to heal political divisions and sectarianism.
The biggest challenge facing Al-Abbadi is the rampant corruption in the army which collapsed before offering daash as to make the State look inefficient. After support by popular protests across Iraq and the Supreme reference, Abbadi said in August the campaign reforms focused on dismantling the system of patronage and root out inefficiency and corruption that have undermined Iraq's battle with daash.
But soon stumbled those procedures because of legal challenges and opposition from powerful stakeholders. After feeling frustrated I took the protests describing Abadi with weak and passive. Sistani also expressed dissatisfaction with the delay of reforms called Abadi to bolder action in opponents.
Although Sistani rarely hosts politicians, Najaf-Abadi will support was against militias and politicians such as Al-Maliki seeking to preserve the privileges that these reforms, and their destination of this rift among Shiite leaders in Iraq increases the fragmentation of the country who fights the biggest threat since 2003 mp Sami Askari, of the State of law Coalition, the journey to Najaf Abadi "it is a setback, I'm sure that returned from Najaf Abadi sad because if met Mr. Sistani could balance Moves in Parliament ".
The spokesman said Al-Abbadi, such a meeting was required. And a source close to the Prime Minister that the meeting did not get is negative.
With the fading of the popular mandate and delegation, probably won't be Abadi in position to challenge opponents to his reforms.
The toughest demands have come from within the State of law Coalition, which last week voted that Abbadi with further consultations before taking decisions, while opposition lawmakers focused on reforms and that it stems from the big differences between the two camps within the State of law and Maliki Abadi.
Maliki's supporters consider very close Abadi United States that arms and trains Iraqi forces leading the air campaign against daash. Maliki also enjoys popularity among militia groups that consider it a fortress against Sunni insurgents.
The military says "sometimes feels this is threatening Abadi authority therefore tries to weaken Maliki". Abbadi did not succeed in promoting one of the major reforms of the abolition of the posts of Vice-Presidents of the Republic, including Al-Maliki, who remained in Office and taken to the same collision course with Abadi. Adds military "more pressure on Al-Maliki Al-Abbadi whenever they lost the support of the State of law" and exiled members of the State law speculation that Abbadi began courting parties outside the Coalition to form a new coalition that supports his reforms, and warned that such a step would require significant concessions from him and subjected to attacks from his base. But lawmakers say that Abbadi maybe still need broader support to ensure smooth proposals passed in Parliament and prevent a vote of no confidence.
Support the Abadi from the clergy, whom he met in Najaf who opposed Al-Maliki, is important in any future confrontation. And a source close to the Prime Minister to support other parties as the Sadrists or the Supreme Islamic Council in Iraq, increase the power of Abbadi in preventing any coup from within his coalition.
The source said "he wants to ensure the number of Parliament prevents any move to withdraw confidence, little support from Kurds and Sunnis means they receive 60% required to withdraw confidence. It's a proactive movement ".
