Yada: Folks, this will work in our favor,,,”Al-Maliki’s coalition ignores the minister’s tweet and sets a date for the presidential selection session” Once the president is selected, even if the whole cabinet is not, the release of the currency will take place. The appointment process can take up to 30 days but the government is technically formed with the president…. And its the Kurds who choose the President, not the Framework. (I know you all know this, now is a good time to repeat it)
Netglobal: Yada why do you think just because a new President is selected that will get automatically us the RV?
Yada: You’ve forgotten what we were waiting for in Jan and Feb this year. We waited for the President vote, expecting the RI, and the Kurds wanted to hold back for more. Well the more they got, was the lose of the 17% that the federal court took from them.
Annie68: yada, are there even enough members to vote on it?
Yada: Annie,,that is the irony of it all, The framework needs the process to start. As long as they don’t gather to vote for a dissolution of Parliment, his group will get the 2/3 vote and now that the SCOI has stated they will not, despite them saying it is illegal for parliament to not form a government, the way out of the impass is to get the President in.
NetGlobal: Well Yada as always I hope your optimism is correct.

Cutebwoy: A Iraq’s Maliki Faces Lawsuit Demanding His Arrest, Travel Ban
Baghdad – Asharq Al-Awsat
Head of the Sadrist bloc in Iraq Nassar Al Rubaie has filed a lawsuit against former prime minister and leader of State of Law Coalition Nouri Al Maliki.
In a letter presented to the third panel of Al-Karkh Criminal Court, Rubaie requested authorities to issue an arrest warrant against Maliki and a travel ban.
According to leaked audio cited by Rubaie, Maliki had threatened to kill Muqtada al Sadr, a Shiite cleric who leads one of Iraq’s most powerful political parties.
Moreover, the former premier was accused of threatening to attack Najaf and Kufa.
Rubaie also complained about “abusive and offensive” phrases Maliki directed against followers of the Sadrist Movement.
The suit against Maliki comes a day after the Iraqi judiciary announced that it is still investigating the leaked voice recordings attributed to the former prime minister.
“There are many specialized bodies participating in this investigation, and there is no pressure on the judicial authorities to close this file,” a judicial source who requested anonymity told Asharq Al-Awsat.
The source pointed out that there is a “legal framework that investigation authorities have to go through before announcing findings soon.”
Ali Fadhil, a US-based blogger, is responsible for the leaks. The audio allegedly belongs to an informal meeting between Maliki and unknown persons. It lasts for 48 minutes.
In the recording, Maliki specifically attacks the Sadrists and their leader, describing them as “cowards.”
Maliki’s recordings also included an attack on Sunni Arabs and Kurds.
In the recordings, Maliki also revealed personal intentions to arm around 20,000 fighters on the ground.
These fighters would receive financial and logistical support and legal cover in exchange for protecting Maliki from the leader of the Sadrist movement.
Maliki, in the audio, accuses al-Sadr of wanting to “slaughter” everyone
