BAGHDAD - A translation of the morning
taking the Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki loses his patience over the wayward partners in the political process, so claimed the resort to a number of tactics aimed at forcing them to attend class. Among these tactics offer certain concessions on some controversial things in the hope of it being able to win over the slides, which is concerned in the society and the weakening of political opponents. Impasse, which ended the political situation now has to disable a lot of legislation has hampered progress in many aspects, such as the ongoing electrical energy crisis which affected the economy and hurt the lives of most Iraqi citizens. While waving Maliki to call for new elections, in an effort to get its partners in the political process to change their attitudes, it remains unlikely to take place away from this election year, as well as unlikely to happen real breakthrough remote term in the current political impasse. However, the elections will be most likely in 2013, before the one year ahead of schedule for the upcoming elections.
during this stay-Maliki recorded good results in the opinion polls conducted on a small scale, despite the presence of negative in some parts of the country. This relative increase in popularity is due what is known about al-Maliki of his quest to build a strong government, and al-Maliki is now seen as intractable situation in the Legislative Council as an important fundamental problem that would cause serious harm to his position. As a result, al-Maliki demanded that the partners pass important legislation, and I have had to transfer from his back-room negotiations to outright confrontation with partners and political rivals.
As well as the creation of al-Maliki took the floor for the upcoming elections, and was the main tactic is to deliberately allow the re-appointment of former officers in the army and security forces, a decision taken in the month of June was intended to calm the feelings of the Almatmlh discontent in the breasts of certain segments of Iraqi society. But Maliki did not allow this decision to re-appointment absolutely and in all areas, but the face of the army instead that includes officers separated from the province of Anbar in particular, and the political objective of this step is to weaken the support given to the "Iraqi List" which represent the main opposition bloc.
board Maliki has the possibility of early elections, and the purpose was to urge the partners to move in and out of their position. And al-Maliki is capable, if willing, to be implemented by the board because what opinion polls indicate that he will win the elections if they were in July, while the more his allies and his opponents were Mnakdh the results come out too bad.
This tactic could result in the adoption of some legislation they want, a move that will add further luster to the reputation of al-Maliki as a strong leader. However, will almost certainly be delayed to reach a decision about the affairs of a particular task, such as long-term simmering dispute between the Baghdad government and the local government of the Kurdistan region on the legality of the disputed oil contracts. Even if some of the legislation was approved in the near term - which would happen if that delay the holding of early elections - there is a structural things will remain payable to escalate tensions to the surface at the end of the day . To rule out that al-Maliki to proceed with the implementation of the board should ask him to hold elections this year, but will ponder seriously the call for early elections in 2013 because Maliki, despite all the skepticism about the results of polls opinion, has tempted the results that are consistent that a consistent set a date for elections a year ahead of schedule in an attempt to stay in power and maintain the balance of power. The exact concern in Iraq. Also likely to result in early elections for granting his coalition, the best coherent and consistent than others and named "coalition of state law," an outstanding advantage over the other blocs such as the list of "Iraq."
