When will Iraq solve its crisis? Al-Ittihad newspaper



Mohammad bin Saeed..a leader is enough

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.

As aggression on Gaza resumes… Withdrawal, withdrawal, condemnations from climate conference in Dubai

A devastating Israeli resumption of war in Gaza on Friday overshadowed the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, with some delegates walking out, leaders canceling their speeches and others not attending the event.

In his speech, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, “As a result of Israel’s occupation, we cannot avoid facing the humanitarian crisis in our neighboring Palestinian territories, which cannot be justified under any circumstances.” He considered it a “crime against humanity and a war crime”.

In turn, the presidents of Colombia and Cuba described the war as “genocide”.

The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, was not included in the final list of speakers after his name appeared.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was scheduled to be the first speaker, but did not attend the summit.

“As we see in the region, conflicts are causing great suffering and emotion,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at the summit. “We heard reports of renewed bombs in Gaza.”

Iranian delegates walked out of the conference in protest at the sudden Israeli presence, which the head of the delegation, Energy Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian, described as “contrary to the goals and directions of the conference.”

Iranian official media reported on Thursday that President Ibrahim Raisi would not attend the conference and that Mehrabian would act in his stead.

Iraqi President Abdul Latif Rashid used his speech to condemn the aggression against Gaza, calling on the international community to “stand firm”.

Other leaders have also criticized the war in Gaza, but Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has not spoken about it.

Israeli President Isaac Herzog canceled his speech, a day after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas canceled his participation in the conference, as the war in Gaza dominated the conference’s deliberations.

So far, the Israeli occupation of Gaza has led to the fall of more than 15,000 martyrs, most of them women and children.

Israel says 1,200 Israeli soldiers and settlers have been killed as a result of Operation Al-Aqsa flooding, which was launched by the opposition on October 7 last year in settlements around Gaza.

The Palestinian opposition said the move came in retaliation for crimes of aggression against civilians in the West Bank and Gaza and the desecration of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.

It is noteworthy that the United Arab Emirates, the host country of the conference, is one of the Arab countries that signed default agreements with Israel in 2020.
