Posted On2022-08-17 By Sotaliraq Translation: Hamed Ahmed A newspaper revealed the possibility of a British intervention to settle the political crisis in Iraq, stressing that this comes in light of the preoccupation of the American and Iranian sides with the negotiations on the nuclear file.
A report by the British (Middle East Eye) website, translated by (Al-Mada), stated that “any attempt to reduce the tension between the two sides of the political conflict in Iraq, represented by the Sadrist movement and the coordination framework, is met with a complete rejection by the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, in receiving any invitations or visits from Any person, since his followers in Parliament submitted their resignations.”
The report continued, “Al-Sadr, despite several attempts to communicate with him and initiatives proposed by political forces that have no role in the conflict, will not open up to any channel for dialogue.”
He pointed out that “Jenine Plasschaert, the United Nations representative in Iraq, is the only person who succeeded in speaking with al-Sadr after he agreed to receive her last week at his residence in Najaf.”
And the report indicated, “None of the parties disclosed what happened in the meeting, which lasted for about two hours, but according to a Western diplomat, it is clear that Plasschaert’s efforts to persuade al-Sadr to be open to dialogue with his opponents were not successful.”
He stressed, “Al-Sadr in fact escalated matters further only 48 hours after his demand for the President of the Supreme Judicial Council, Faiq Zeidan, to dissolve parliament within a week.”
The Western diplomat says, “The Blackschaert meeting with Al-Sadr was not bad, but it did not produce tangible results. Al-Sadr demanded the dissolution of Parliament before starting any dialogues or making any settlements, and that this was not acceptable to his opponents and allies.”
The report noted that “international observers, Iraqi politicians and Western diplomats said that although the two main powers that have had influence in Iraq since 2003, the United States and Iran, have so far not used this influence to help resolve the crisis.”
He pointed out that “the two parties do not seem inclined to intervene anytime soon, because the thorny negotiations on resuming the 2015 nuclear agreement are the main preoccupation of Washington and Tehran in the region.”
The report added, “The countries of the European Union, as long as they do not have that great influence in Iraq, attention is directed to Britain, which has good relations with everyone and is able to influence its influence on the two sides of the conflict.”
The director of the United States Institute of Peace, Elie Abu Aoun, said that “the international community is confused and does not see sufficient options available to resolve the crisis.”
Abu Aoun added, “The Americans will not interfere directly and will not use any of their political weight in the interest of any party. They may resort to supporting another mediator, but they will not interfere.”
Abu Aoun pointed out that “regional parties such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Iran may intervene…but none of them will support an armed confrontation. However, it is not yet clear what Britain’s position is.”
Abu Aoun spoke of “a great possibility of active British intervention,” stressing that “the British have wide influence in Iraq and they are now one of the most important parties that can play an active role in resolving this crisis.”
The report stated, “Al-Sadr wants early elections, but many other political forces want the same thing, including his opponents from the coordination framework.”
And he indicated, “The coordinating framework wants the elections to take place according to mechanisms that will make them come out with better results than they were in the October elections, which require implementation in Parliament.”
The report cautioned that “Al-Sadr, for his part, rejects all these proposals, and although he asked the Supreme Judicial Council to dissolve parliament, everyone knows that the Council does not have the authority to do so. Zidane himself said about this on Sunday.
He added, “Political leaders, officials, diplomats and legal experts said that what al-Sadr did not disclose to the public or any of his political and legal advisors is that holding early elections according to the same election law and its mechanisms will not solve the problem and will not change anything from the current reality.”
And the report added, “The coordination framework parties failed in the last October elections to understand the secrets of the new election law, and their performance was not good, and the distribution of their candidates in the electoral districts was poor, which led to unsatisfactory results.”
He pointed out, “Another factor was the popular anger against them over accusations of suppressing the October uprising and its participants in 2019”
The report quoted “politicians, legal experts and observers as saying that the coordination framework parties will not make the same mistakes again, and therefore do not expect that performance to be repeated. In fact, the biggest winner in any early elections is likely to be one of the coordinating framework parties.
A prominent Shiite politician says, “The coordinating framework forces knew very well their weakness that led them to this great loss, and they will not repeat that again.”
The Shiite politician added, “Having elections according to the same law will not result in any significant difference. Al-Sadr’s audience is almost limited, and that is why they may get almost the same number of seats, while his opponents may get twice what the Sadrists will get, and as for the independents from the October, they may be among the biggest losers in any upcoming elections.
The Shiite politician pointed out that “the Tishreen movement was marred by internal competition among its members, and that their bloc, consisting of 25 independent parliament members, was unable to achieve any significant achievements during their short term in parliament.”
And the Shiite politician went on to say, “The large blocs had a role in paralyzing the movement of the Tishreen forces and depriving them of any opportunity to achieve influence. As a result, trust in Tishreen politicians is weaker than ever now, and their audience began to criticize them everywhere.”
