The “Coordination Framework” forces are promoting a service government in Iraq… What is meant?


The Coordination Framework forces are promoting a service government in Iraq... What is meantFor the second time in two days, the “ coordinating framework ” coalition in Iraq , which includes several political forces allied to Iran, borrows the term “service government” in its statements, talking about its quest to form a government.

This comes after the Sadrist bloc’s deputies resigned from Parliament earlier this week, and the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, decided to withdraw from the race to form a government, in response to efforts to circumvent the election results in which his bloc achieved first place, and the refusal of competing political forces to form a government from outside She calls it the “Shiite Political House.”

The slogan of the “consensual government”, which the coalition insists on in its political confrontation with the Sadrist movement, is one of the most prominent disputes, as the “coordinating framework” demands a government similar to previous governments, based on sectarian quotas that depend on sectarian weights for each of the Iraqi components, regardless What did you achieve in that election? On the other hand, the religious leader Muqtada al-Sadr rejects this, and raises the slogan of the majority government, which depends on the outcomes of the last parliamentary elections on the tenth of October last year.

In a statement yesterday, Tuesday, after a meeting held at the residence of former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, with representatives of several political blocs, the “Coordination Framework” statement spoke of a “government that provides services.” Another statement was preceded by another statement on Monday, which said that the “Coordination Framework” coalition seeks to “complete the constitutional dues and form a national service government.”

Also in the context, yesterday, Tuesday, the representative of the “Coordination Framework” coalition, Aref Al-Hamami, indicated that “the coordination framework and its allies are seeking to form a (service government) during the next stage, capable of ending the suffering that the Iraqi people have been suffering from for a long time. from the lack of services and other basic necessities of life.

Al-Hamami added that “Iraq during the next stage needs a service government, whose main tasks are to provide services, electricity, water, construction and other files that the current government was unable to develop despite the presence of all facilities for it.”

Meanwhile, the representative of the same coalition, Madiha Al-Moussawi, spoke today, Wednesday, about the need for a government that “meets the needs of the citizen,” according to statements reported by a local TV station.

What is meant by “service government”
In response to a question about the coalition’s adoption of this term “service government,” a prominent member of it told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that “the term service government means going to a government that is able to pass people’s interests and secure services, so that the situation does not remain suspended and the country is without a financial budget. There are food crises, inflation, unemployment, poverty, climate change and great challenges in Iraq.

But he pointed out that the phrase “service government” has nothing to do with the basis for forming this government, which must be with the participation of all political forces wishing to participate in it, and the term “service government” does not contradict a consensual government.

And the source adds, asking not to be named, that “there are efforts to keep Mustafa Al-Kazemi for a longer period as the crisis continues, which the coordination framework does not want.”

However, the Iraqi political analyst Ahmed Al-Nuaimi told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, “The term aims to address the Iraqi street in the first place, and try to play on terminology, given that the Sadrists are the ones who obstruct the existence of a service government for them.”

Al-Naimi asked about “five previous governments formed by the Dawa Party and the Supreme Council, who are among the pillars of the coordination framework, whose budgets amounted to more than a thousand billion dollars over a period of about 16 years, and they were unable to provide electricity or water services to citizens.”
