The United States has threatened Iraqi political parties and personalities if they continue to nominate unacceptable American figures to head the next government, while noting that they will be included in sanctions lists if they abstain from voting for the presidential candidate.
Al-Sharq Al-Awsat reported in a report that the United States had informed Iraqi parties about its only choice for the candidate of the next prime minister, pointing out that this is largely related to the development of the US-Iranian conflict.
The newspaper quoted an Iraqi politician as saying that “the United States of America informed the important Iraqi parties that their only choice to head the government, regardless of the size of the bloc or who is with him and whoever goes out and with whom joins the alliance,” noting that “some US messages appeared to be bombarded and the language of warning from That the insistence of blocks or parties or personalities on candidates are not acceptable to the US, and can make them under the sanctions of the US forces and people.
“This is largely linked to the evolution of the US-Iranian conflict and the escalation of sanctions on Iran,” the politician said, adding that “the US administration may inflict sanctions on Iraqi parties rather than on the Iraqi state.”
The political scene is witnessing a wide movement among the winning forces in the elections that took place on the 12th of May to form the largest bloc Niaibia in preparation for the task of forming the next government.
