Will the “framework” government open the door to the “deep state” in Iraq?

Will the framework government open the door to the deep state in IraqIn a television interview, Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, the candidate for the “coordinating framework” to head the Iraqi government, appeared ready for an adventure in a politically and security ambiguous moment. His statements he made clearly indicated that negotiating with Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the “Sadr movement”, was no longer a priority for his opponents in the Shiite parties.

Al-Sudani, on the evening of yesterday (Tuesday), made promises to “restrict weapons in the hands of the state,” to hold “whales of corruption” accountable, and not to hold the position for more than one term. The Coordination Framework”, which includes forces allied to Iran, is behind his candidacy.

During the interview, the Sadrist movement’s audience was circulating on their media platforms, which are often used for field mobilization, impressions described as dangerous about the outcome of a government led by the “framework”, most notably the talk that “the monopoly of financial and oil institutions is imminent by political groups.” tracking Iran.

Until the dawn of Wednesday, activists from the “Sadr movement” and the civil movement tried to pressure al-Sadr to end his political retreat and return to the scene, under the pretext of “preventing (the framework) from assuming power without a competitor.”

It is clear that the goal that Al-Sudani was looking for from the media appearance, even before he was actually assigned to form the government, was to calm the political parties, including Al-Sadr; That his government program will not be a revenge project, after 10 months of blockage, and it does not seem that he has succeeded in these endeavors so far. With the advent of Wednesday morning, the capital, Baghdad, seemed to be a scene of dismemberment to restrict protests against the “coordinating framework.”

Various information about the government formation path was filtered from the offices of the “coordinating framework”, which includes plans to control key positions, most notably the director of the prime minister’s office, the presidency of the intelligence and national security services, oil institutions and the “central bank”. “Deep” is a phrase used to describe the era of Nouri al-Maliki.

Thus, Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, for many in the Sadrist atmosphere, became a front for al-Maliki, who is still eager to return to the Cabinet Palace, and all he needs is a political figure that guarantees political calm and international and regional acceptance, while leaders in the “coordinating framework” are expanding in Governmental institutions.

The “coordinating framework”, according to Shiite leaders, needs a government that controls it, to limit the ambitions of al-Sadr and the forces of the civil current, in amending constitutional texts, and addressing the election law and the commission that the “framework” insists on changing before the elections are held; The Shiite parties will not participate in any voting round without legal guarantees to increase their seats in a different competitive atmosphere with al-Sadr.

In these complex calculations, it does not seem that the protest movement is able to gather its forces and restore the activity of October 2019; There are sharp polarizations between the forces of the movement, and the “framework” and “the current” played complex roles in exacerbating and strengthening them. Once the framework government is formed in the absence of al-Sadr, it is unlikely that the popular protest will be a force that changes the equation of governance and those in power in it.

An economist explains how to control the currency sale auction

An economist explains how to control the currency sale auction

The Information/Baghdad… The economic expert, Abdul Salam Hassan, explained that the currency sale auction can be controlled through the government’s move towards equalizing the value of the dinar with the dollar or making it close to the dinar, pointing to the difficulty of stopping this auction, especially with the presence of dominant parties on the scene.

Hassan told Al-Maalouma, “The currency auction cannot be stopped, and there is no law preventing its work, as it is supported by the World Bank, despite corruption and the parties’ control over it to achieve personal benefits.”

He added that “most countries work with currency auctions or the so-called economic colonialism, and countries take it for financial investment and a window to extract the currency, but the work of this auction in Iraq cannot be legalized or stopped under the pretext of continuing import, and this matter needs more currency.”

And he indicated that “the increase in the amounts of currency sale came as a result of the increase in the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar, as it achieves greater benefit through the currency sale auction, and the government can control this matter and reduce the amounts sold in the auction by making the value of the dollar close to the dinar and thus the two values ​​are equal or may The difference is very simple.”

The “second term”… is worried about Al-Sadr and loses the bet of the framework, and Biden “insults” its owner!

The “second term”… is worried about Al-Sadr and loses the bet of the framework, and Biden “insults” its owner!

The Information/Baghdad… From betting on the support of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to trying to split the ranks of the coordination framework, the caretaker prime minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, is trying to obtain a glimmer of political hope that will lead to his staying in power as long as possible or renewing his term, but these attempts have become All of them break on the rock of political and popular rejection.

The latest attempts by Al-Kazemi and his media and Facebook team were to try to split the framework and promote the presence of parties within the coordination with the renewal of Al-Kazemi’s mandate, but soon the decisive response came from all its components with a unified “no” to any effort regarding the renewal of Al-Kazemi.

This political response from the largest political and parliamentary bloc coincides with the growing popular rejection and discontent as a result of the Al-Kazemi government’s policies, especially the economic ones, which led to stagnation and depression in the popular markets, harming the poor and middle class, increasing poverty and unemployment rates, and recording a percentage of extreme poverty, which is “famine” by withdrawing the Ministry planning.

And the representative of the framework, Muhammad Al-Shihoud, said in a statement to “The Information” that “whoever promotes to change the framework candidate, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, wants to keep the current political impasse open and bring the country into complex problems,” noting that “the framework agreement on his Sudanese candidate took time, so what about the duration? That will be spent in naming an alternative candidate, and this will lead us into a dark tunnel, and this is what the enemies of the political process desire.”

Chihod affirms that “the demands for Al-Kazemi’s survival did not succeed and will not succeed in the presence of the coordination framework as a larger bloc inside the parliament,” noting that “there is no one party from the forces of the coordination framework that has a desire for Al-Kazemi to remain for a second term because assuming the premiership is aware of the country’s going into the abyss.”

Apparently, Al-Kazemi’s last station in attempts to renew and gain support for the second term is the United States of America, which he intended to “under the pretext” of representing Iraq in the meetings of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, but it seems that those endeavors were aborted before they were born.

According to information obtained by the “information”, Al-Kazemi’s team is seeking to arrange a meeting with the outgoing Prime Minister and US President Joe Biden without any response from the latter.

Iraq invents the mechanisms for selecting the Prime Minister over the phone

Iraq invents the mechanisms for selecting the Prime Minister over the phone… Communication companies are funding the campaign to keep Al-Kazemi

The Information/Baghdad… The mobile phone companies accused of countless corruption deals in Iraq entered the front line to support the caretaker Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi in obtaining the second term through a media campaign estimated at about 30 million dollars to finance extortion satellite channels to repay him the debt in granting them the licensing round On a platter of gold for free, except for bribes to some officials in his government, with the recognition of the Iraqi judiciary, which rose up to stop the largest corruption deal, according to politicians last year, which was confronted by Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani.

A member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, a leader in the Azm Alliance, Ahmed al-Jubouri, said in a tweet on his Twitter account, “The Information” that “one of the mobile phone companies has contracted with eight well-known satellite channels, contracts starting with one million dollars and ending with six million dollars per year to maintain the caretaker government.”

Al-Jubouri added, “The campaign includes preventing the arrival of Muhammad Shi`a Al-Sudani, as he is the biggest opponent of the corruption of telephone companies in Iraq.
” To find out the fate of the money that was owed and wasted by the government of Mustafa Al-Kazemi.

Al-Bayati added, “As soon as the Sudanese prime minister, the file of telecommunications and corporate corruption is not far from the reform process and the accountability of the corrupt during his rule,” noting that “the campaign led by telecommunications companies aims first to remove any honest person from power at any cost.”

Last year, MP Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani launched a judicial war with the communication companies in Iraq and the Iraqi Media Commission, which he accused of concealing decisions requiring these companies to pay about one trillion dinars to the state in taxes.

Al-Sudani said in previous statements, “The Media and Communications Authority found that one of the mobile phone companies did not fulfill its contractual obligations and seized the frequency spectrum and the fourth generation service, which prompted the authority to inform the company of the legal measures against it.”

He considered that “what is happening in the telecommunications sector is a real farce and flagrant collusion by some officials, because silence about an important sector that provides the state with billions of dollars in addition to being an important and fundamental part of citizens’ lives represents deliberate damage to public money and the public interest.”

Al-Kazemi’s government had renewed the mobile phone license for telecommunications companies for a 5-year period ending by 2026, provided that the companies pay 50 percent of the debts incurred by them in favor of the state, so that this decision faced parliamentary objections, calling on telecommunications companies to pay the debts accumulated on them, not to exploit the state’s capabilities, and to stay away from Covering corruption files.

After more than three months of legal arguments in the framework of a complaint against the government regarding this renewal, which was under the supervision of Al-Sudani, the Karkh Court issued a decision rejecting the renewal of mobile phone company licensing contracts.
