When will Iraq solve its crisis?
We are all about Iraq’s stability and steering its compass by providing services and jobs to meet the demands of the street, and leading the country towards development, ending conflicts, and eliminating corruption and corruption. , Iraq did not emerge from one crisis until it plunged into another, and it has yet to emerge from crisis amid severe political crises, most recently manifested by the boycott of the Green Zone by Iraqis aligned with the Sadrist movement and the siege of parliament.
But why did this intrusion happen? And what is its purpose? What is the fate of the political process in Iraq? Muqtada al-Sadr’s movement won the largest coalition in the recent Iraqi parliamentary elections, but al-Sadr was unable to form a government because political elements, particularly the Shiite “cohesion framework,” prevented it from forming. Political obstruction, particularly his refusal to form a government, led his representatives to resign and ask him to withdraw his seat. . Some interpreted this move by al-Sadr as taking to the streets to prevent him from reimposing himself and forming an Iraqi government incompatible with the aspirations of the Sadrist movement. “Rule of Law” 2019. There are currently many options. Sudanese can withdraw from the scene or form a government that faces the street, and the one mentioned here is the Sadrist movement, which has a wide audience. The last option is to continue the current government led by Mustafa Al-Qassimi until another election is held.
In light of the pursuit of certain forces to control the political process through alliances and consensus games that prevent the formation of any government, some lean towards this option as a peaceful desire to avoid slipping into dangerous turns, and this is what al-Sadr felt, so he withdrew with his representatives and took to the streets to have his say. For about ten months, Iraq has not determined its political right and has not formed its government, therefore, it will not recognize the consequences related to the budget, thus, the costs for services and reforms will not be made, and this directly affects the Iraqi citizen.
In addition, Iraq is embroiled in the problem of electing a president for the republic, who in turn appoints the prime minister, which the parties argue is another problem, but this time because the Kurdish parties have opposed the monopoly of the Kurdistan Democratic Party PUK, and they need to appoint a president soon.
All these disputes over sovereign positions in Iraq directly affect the Iraqi citizen, who is the biggest loser in the partisan tensions. Without reforming the electoral mechanism, eliminating party quotas and moving towards clear elections that give the winner the right to form a government…Iraq will remain a hostage in the hands of enemies who hold political positions. The cake will be shared between them, and try to take each big piece.
We believe that Iraq will come out of its crisis and reform its political life and that whoever forms the government will be loyal to Iraq only, will strive to strengthen the country from within, eliminate corruption and improve the country internally and externally. Iraq is close to its Arab bosom, and it can form alliances that serve Iraq. First, not any external or internal party holding the country hostage.
