The Sadrist - Democratic and Kurdistan Movement will nominate Al-Kazemi to head the governmentBaghdad/Sky Press

An Arab website mentioned that the tripartite alliance consisting of the Sadrist movement and the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Sunni sovereignty, will nominate Al-Kazemi to head the government

With the approach of the election of a President of the Republic in Iraq, after Parliament reopened the door for candidacy for the position last Saturday, private political sources revealed that the political forces proposed the names of two personalities to head the next government.

The website said from private sources that the tripartite alliance (the Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr, the Kurdistan Democratic Party led by Massoud Barzani, and the Sunni Sovereignty Alliance headed by Khamis al-Khanjar and Muhammad al-Halbousi) agreed to nominate the current Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi for a second term.

The sources added, “The three parties are determined to renew Al-Kazemi’s mandate after the completion of the selection of the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s candidate, Reber Ahmed, for the position of President of the Republic, and thus the latter assigns Al-Kazemi to form the government again.”

On the other hand, the same sources confirmed that the forces of the Shiite coordination framework, the former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, put forward a new candidate to head the next government, in conjunction with the agreements it made with Sunni and Kurdish forces to announce the formation of an alliance under the name of “national stability” of 133 deputies.

And she stated that “the new alliance, which will be announced in the coming days, consists of the coordinating framework forces combined, in addition to the Sunni Azm alliance, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, with a number of independent representatives.”

Despite the insistence of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr to form a national majority government from the Triple Alliance, but he invited more than once to attract the forces of the coordination framework, but he was an exception from that, the leader of the State of Law coalition Nuri al-Maliki, which was rejected by the “framework” more than once.

For his part, Iraqi political science professor Moataz Al-Najm said, “The coordinating framework forces, through their interaction with the Federal Court and the legislative authority, still possess the initiative, and they have former heads of government, Nuri al-Maliki and Haider al-Abadi, in addition to the leader of the Wisdom Movement Ammar. The sage who is considered a tire dynamo.”

In an interview with an Arab press website, Al-Najm said, “The strength of the coordination framework is not measured on the basis of the number of parliamentary seats, but rather on their political weight in the country’s political equation, given that the political process in Iraq was built on the basis of political consensus and not the majority.”

He continued: “What we have seen in the decisions of the Federal Court indicates that the coordinating framework forces were able to obstruct some agreements and alliances, and restrict the movements of the opposing forces, so we see that he can submit Al-Abadi to the prime minister, which is somewhat acceptable, but there are Kurdish reservations about him, Specifically from the Kurdistan Democratic Party, and this can be resolved.”

And the star pointed out that “the way Prime Minister Al-Kazemi dealt with some armed forces and factions of the coordination framework, made the latter set red lines in front of his re-nomination for a second term, and these cannot be neglected because they have political representation, and they have power on the ground.”

The star expressed his belief that “presenting the name of Haider al-Abadi is a political maneuver by the forces of the coordination framework, in order to provide a token of understanding and consensus, and this step may succeed or fail, but the closest scenario is that the maneuver requires the other party to present an alternative to Al-Kazemi.”

On the other hand, the Iraqi political analyst, Ghanem Al-Abed, considered that “talking about forming the alliance of stability is illogical, and an attempt to confuse the tripartite alliance, which is still coherent, with evidence that in the last session of Parliament and reopening the door for nomination for the President of the Republic, we did not find that there was an obstructed third 203 deputies approved, while only 62 deputies abstained.

Al-Abed explained that “there is more than one external party that seeks to name the next Iraqi prime minister, as the French side seeks to nominate a legal personality from Nasiriyah governorate who holds French citizenship and enjoys an honorary diplomatic position, to be the head of the next government.”

He continued, “There is also an Iranian desire with an Arab country to nominate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi as prime minister, but all indications are moving towards renaming the current prime minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, for a new term.
