The crisis in Iraq enters the stage of breaking a bone between Al-Sadr and Al-Maliki


The crisis in Iraq enters the stage of breaking a bone between Al-Sadr and Al-MalikiBaghdad – Frightening scenarios are emerging on Iraq, in light of the mobilization and mobilization opposite the street between the Shiite parties, and the refusal of both to make any acceptable concessions, to end the explosive crisis since last October.

Observers believe that the spelling method adopted by the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, and the latest of which was the Iraqi judiciary’s decision at the end of next week to dissolve parliament, although this matter is marred by legal and constitutional flaws, made the “moderate” voices within the coordination framework decline, in return for granting the leader of a state coalition Law Nouri al-Maliki a new paper to pour oil on the fire of the crisis.

Observers point out that al-Sadr’s condescending style played an opposite role in terms of the hesitant line-up in the coordination framework behind al-Maliki, who in turn wants to turn the current crisis into a bone-breaking operation, in light of his conviction, which he previously expressed in audio leaks that the arena cannot accommodate him and al-Sadr. And that the latter must be removed, even if that requires entering into a civil war.

Al-Sadr’s condescending style played an opposite role in terms of aligning the undecided in the coordinating framework behind Nuri al-Maliki.

Thursday, the coordination framework called on its supporters to demonstrate on Friday in front of one of the gates of the Green Zone in the capital, Baghdad, while the Sadrist movement called on its followers to demonstrate in the provinces.

The organizing committee for the demonstrations “Defending Legitimacy and Preserving State Institutions” of the Coordination Framework said in a statement that it “calls on those who love their country and state to actively participate in a demonstration that will start on Friday at five o’clock local time at the walls of the Green Zone.”

The committee added that the demonstration, which comes under the slogan “The People Protects the State”, “aims to demand respect for state institutions… and to prevent lawlessness, chaos, and disruption of security and community peace.”

The statement urged the demonstrators from its supporters to “peacefully demand the formation of a national service government that alleviates the suffering of the people… that approves the state budget to provide job opportunities… and fights corruption by activating the role of integrity and financial control, and other matters that concern Iraq and the Iraqis.”

He called for “commitment to the committee’s instructions, not to encroach on public and private property, and to cooperate fully with our brothers in the Iraqi security forces.”

On the other hand, Saleh Muhammad al-Iraqi, nicknamed the Minister of al-Sadr, called on supporters of the movement in a post on his pages on social networking sites, to “gather Friday in all governorates at the same time as the coordination framework demonstrations at five in the afternoon.”

Saleh called on supporters of the movement “to stay in their places and not leave until receiving instructions.” “During the demonstrations, legal forms will be filled out to be submitted to the judiciary in order to dissolve Parliament,” he said.

Observers believe that the Sadrist movement’s decision to descend its followers at the same time as the demonstrations announced by the framework falls within the context of a show of strength with the opposite team, in light of its conviction that the latter does not have many supporters, and that those who will mobilize them are militia members.

Observers point out that Al-Sadr, through the new review, seeks to embarrass the position of the framework, and puts it in a difficult situation between using force through militia elements that can participate in the movement, or submitting to Al-Sadr’s orders regarding settling the crisis.

And the Minister of Al-Sadr directed, Wednesday, to fill out a form and deliver it to lawyers and notaries, according to the legal contexts. The aforementioned form includes a list of lawsuits filed by the protestors from among the followers of the current and the representatives to the Iraqi judicial authorities to dissolve Parliament. The leader of the Sadrist movement had earlier directed the Supreme Judicial Council to dissolve parliament within a period not exceeding the end of next week.

Al-Sadr had previously announced an initiative that is a set of conditions based on dissolving the current parliament and forming a new government, and the framework responded to these conditions with conditional approval.

The coordination framework called on its supporters to demonstrate Friday in front of one of the gates of the Green Zone in the capital, Baghdad, while the Sadrist movement called on its followers to demonstrate in the provinces.

Al-Maliki stressed that any new elections must be preceded by a commitment to the provisions of the constitution, including the formation of a new government.

Friday’s demonstrations are the second demonstrations by the Sadrist movement and its rival Shiite coordination framework since the storming of the Green Zone by followers of the Sadrist movement on the thirtieth of last July in protest against the nomination of Muhammad Shi’a Al-Sudani for prime minister by the coordination framework.

Al-Sudani is close to Iran, and the leaders of the Sadrist movement describe him as a “shadow” of former Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, and he previously held government positions, while the Sadrist movement and other Iraqi forces call for choosing a personality who did not hold any positions, and to keep the current government headed by Mustafa al-Kazemi to oversee the elections. new.

Observers believe that Al-Sudani’s refusal was only an excuse from the Sadrist movement to take to the street. It is clear that Al-Sadr will reject any figure proposed by the framework, and that his main goal is to push for new elections that enhance his political status and give him an advantage in forming a government under his full administration.

Observers point out that Al-Sadr’s conviction seems unrealistic, in light of the current election law, which imposes alliances between sectarian components in Iraq.

For about ten months, the process of forming the Iraqi government has been in a state of political impasse, due to the Sadrist movement’s adherence to the program of the national majority, while the coordinating framework is trying to remain in the state of the Shiite majority and guarantee the rights of the “largest component.”
