The day after his attack on her Hadi Al-Amiri meets BlackshartShafaq News/ The leader of Al-Fateh Alliance Hadi Al-Amiri met on Thursday with the head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq “UNAMI” in the capital, Baghdad.

“During my meeting today with the head of the Al-Fateh Alliance Hadi Al-Amiri, we expressed our hope that the Independent High Electoral Commission and the Electoral Judicial Authority will independently consider all appeals related to the parliamentary elections,” Plasschaert said in a tweet on Twitter.

Plasschaert urged all parties to “find serious political solutions and form an inclusive government that meets the aspirations of the Iraqi people.”

For his part, Al-Amiri said during the meeting, according to a statement by his office, that “what concerns us and one of our first priorities is Iraq’s security and political stability, and we have made efforts to achieve this all our lives and youth in this way, so we reject everything that destabilizes or impedes its stability,” noting that “Our rejection of the results of the recent elections came from our belief that these results are catastrophic and will destabilize his security and stability and undermine the most important pillar of the democratic process, which is the election boxes.”

Al-Amiri added that “the refusal came out of our keenness on the democratic path and the peaceful exchange of power through the election boxes, which is the outcome of a long struggle and jihad for the Iraqi people against dictatorship, in which hundreds of thousands of martyrs, missing persons and the disabled were presented.”

Al-Amiri criticized “Plasschaert’s position on the High Electoral Commission, praising and defending it despite the many and great failures as a result of its poor management of the elections, its lack of credibility and transparency, and its repeated violations of the law.”

Al-Amiri also criticized Plasschaert’s “high praise for the technical side, despite the major failures in the devices,” wondering, “Does when we file appeals through legal and judicial methods, is it a threat to the Commission, as stated in your non-objective briefing to the Security Council?”

“Unfortunately, you did not act as a representative of the United Nations to help Iraq solve its problems according to the mission’s tasks, but you acted as a high representative, and this is what we reject altogether,” Al-Amiri said.

Al-Amiri concluded his speech to Plasschaert by saying, “We regret your unsuccessful speech, which complicated the electoral scene and torpedoed the political solution.”

This meeting comes in the wake of a violent attack launched by Al-Amiri on Blackshart against the backdrop of a briefing the latter gave to the UN Security Council, in which she said that there was no evidence of electoral fraud.

Yesterday, Wednesday, Al-Amiri said, during his meeting with the Ambassador of the European Union in Iraq, Phil Variola, “We have great cooperation and a good relationship with the United Nations mission, which we believe in its positive role, but our confidence has begun to be shaken due to the violations committed by the current head of mission, Jenin Plasschaert.”

He added that Blackshart “interfered in the elections and their results as if she was a high commissioner, and Iraq did not and will not accept any high commissioner and must abide by its specific duties.”

The “Al-Fatah” coalition, which is a political umbrella for the armed factions, was the most prominent loser in the recent elections by obtaining 16 seats, after it came second with 48 seats in the 2018 elections.

According to the preliminary results of the parliamentary elections that took place last month, the “Sadr bloc” of Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr came first with 73 seats out of 329.

Since the announcement of the preliminary results, Iraq has been experiencing political and security tensions, as a result of the rejection of the results by armed Shiite forces and factions, which they say are “fabricated”, and demand that all votes be recounted manually.
