The Political Stalemate Between The Ambitions Of The Outside And The Interests Of The Sunnis And The Kurds… Will Their Goals Be Achieved?
Posted On2022-09-16 By Sotaliraq Baghdad.. Getting out of the political blockage and going towards forming a government has become conditional on achieving the interests of the Sunni and Kurdish forces and the external parties supporting them, especially the Turkish ones, a series whose episodes have been renewed despite the presence of optimism for the formation of the new government from the largest Shiite bloc to be applied afterwards as “every incident has a talk.”
During his speech, the representative of the State of Law coalition, Muhammad Al-Sihoud, pledged, “The stability of the political process is the dismissal of the Al-Kazemi government and its removal from power and the formation of the new government, accusing him of fabricating the political crisis since the elections and until the present time.”
The interests of the Kurds topped the political agenda during the current dialogues, as a member of the State of Law coalition, Fadel Al-Azrajawi, confirmed that “other non-Shiite blocs are not interested in the continuation of the conflict within the Shiite house, as they seek to achieve their interests, as the Kurds have placed most of their concern in obtaining 50 percent of Iraq’s imports.
And they have a basic condition related to the head of the new government, and this condition requires the new president to ignore the decision of the Federal Court regarding oil and not to deal with its decision.”
The external factor was strongly present to remove the stick from the wheel of the political process, as the political analyst Muayyad Al-Ali saw during his speech, “Al-Halbousi and Barzani’s decision to share the dagger to go towards forming the government was issued days after the visit of the head of the Turkish intelligence service to Iraq and his meeting with the dagger, and therefore things will move forward.” After the fortieth visit, towards the holding of the parliament session and the formation of the government.” LINK
