Twilight News / scene to the astonishment of many, Nuri al – Maliki came down with a smile of an Iraqi aircraft on 18 July to July in the city of Sulaymaniyah, and was greeted by a number of senior officials of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan party, one of the main parties in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
Al – Maliki said that his visit just an ordinary meeting with the leaders of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the MDC after the two parties formed an alliance earlier this year.
as many people saw that this visit comes in light of an uncertain Maliki hopes to regain the prime minister Haidar al – Abbadi reports, a colleague of the Dawa Party The leader of the Islamic party. Is scheduled to hold general elections in the year 2018.
As it was al – Maliki is a sober man deserves to be the most powerful man in Iraq, he was forced to leave office in 2014, but his mother , many on the invasion of Iraq , the Islamic state regulation. Defying predictions that the abandonment of the prime minister reluctantly means to an end, al – Maliki worked tirelessly behind the scenes over the past two years to keep its position strong as a politician, and he said now preparing to return.
It came Maliki ‘s visit to the Kurdistan Region in a time dominated by dissent and disagreement over how to deal with the government in Baghdad , on the relationship between the Kurdish factions Home.
Form parties the dominant in Sulaymaniyah, a Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the Movement for Change, a coalition in mid-May – May, causing them Unlike with the Kurdistan Democratic party led by Massoud Barzani.
KDP His speech criticizing al – Maliki strongly. And openly calls for secession from Iraq, or at least to give the Kurdish region powers of the confederation, while the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the Movement for Change reconciliation with Baghdad and the exhaustion of all available options supports before making any decision to push for statehood.
Accordingly, many motives questioned al-Maliki to visit representatives of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the Movement for Change and ignore the Kurdistan Democratic Party, in light of the sharp political rivalry between the Kurds of Iraq. “Whether al-Maliki’s visit is innocent as he said or not, can doubts about the real intentions that deepens while rumored that al-Maliki plans to form a new coalition in order to return to power as prime minister”, according to Kamran Karadaghi, a journalist for the Kurdish Iraqi veteran and former chief of staff of the Iraqi president and leader of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Jalal Talabani.
“During his two terms as prime minister of Iraq [2006-14], al-Maliki has become a controversial split personality.” “Consequently, the Sulaymaniyah visit raised the problems in Kurdistan. I fear that Maliki’s visit had impacted negatively on the hind efforts to overcome the differences between the Kurdish parties. ”
The previous Maliki relationship Balchord volatile, hitting the point of no return when a blocking stake of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq’s budget in early 2014, having sold the KRG oil independently without the approval of Baghdad. In addition, Barzani was of the main characters, which tried to overthrow Maliki in 2012 through the withholding of confidence in parliament, but that did not work. Talabani did not support efforts to Maliki’s removal from power. Thus, it is not surprising that Maliki’s visit raises controversy among the Kurds.
President of the Kurdistan Regional Government Nechirvan Barzani told reporters on 19 July to July, “I think that if the good intentions of al-Maliki, he visited Erbil,” and expressed doubts about what al-Maliki seeks to achieve during his visit.
The question remains whether Maliki actually seeking a closer relationship with the Alliance of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the Movement for Change in order to weaken the Kurdistan Democratic Party, as some say.
He also tried to al-Maliki also creates an atmosphere of optimism about resolving differences deepening between the Governments of the Kurdistan region and Baghdad. Maliki said, “There is little hope of resolving the dispute over the budget between Baghdad and Erbil,” during a joint news conference with Mullah Bakhtiyar, a senior PUK leaders, in the July-July 18. “Because of our Constitution, this means that we can solve all problems. And it can handle the issue of the budget on the basis of the Constitution. ” According to the laws of Iraq’s budget in past years, it is entitled to the Kurdistan Regional Government about 17% of the country’s budget.
Saadi beer, a member of the political bureau of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan Monitor said, “al-Maliki would like to improve relations between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Government of Baghdad.” “I did not come to discuss his premiership and drum up support for his position.”
Beer also played down criticism of the President of the Kurdish government, saying that Barzani met with al-Maliki during a visit by Barzani’s recent visit to the Iraqi capital. He added that al-Maliki – in his capacity as president of a coalition of state law, the largest Shiite bloc in the Iraqi parliament – has a chance to again become prime minister if the Shiite agree to that, but it should not destroy their relationship with the Kurds.
“The visit of Maliki or anyone else will not create divisions in Kurdistan.”
He pointed out that the dispute between the Kurdish parties was the result of internal differences Kurdish power – sharing, including the positions of President of the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Speaker of Parliament. Change movement worked hard to limit the powers of Massoud Barzani , or remove him from the presidency, which caused the prevention of the Kurdistan Democratic Party illegally Yusuf Mohammed Sadiq, a member of the MDC, from entering Arbil.
It is still not clear whether al-Maliki was able to return to the post of prime minister, not only because of the strained relationship and broad sectors of the Kurdish and Sunni communities in Iraq, but also because of the sharp decline in popularity among Shiites, too. It has been the subject of sustained popular protests demanding the fight against corruption, as many Iraqis believe that his government is corrupt and incompetent. Also it remains to be seen whether the meetings between Maliki and leaders of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and the Movement for Change will lead to the joint efforts of the Iraqi Council of Representatives in the coming months.
A beer that his party and the MDC are committed to preserving the Kurdish unity in the face of challenges resulting from Baghdad.
When Abadi tried to remove the Kurdish minister of the government in March – March opposed the Kurdish parties combined this step, despite the profound internal differences.
