What did Haider Abadi reveal after he stepped down from powerFormer Prime Minister Haider Abadi said in his first appearance after stepping down as prime minister that a “small group” managed to control the Iraqi parliament’s decision by “buying votes and paying the money.”

He said in a televised interview that “what is happening in parliament now is the control of a small group, by buying votes and paying the money.” He rejected the group’s name, while observers believe it points to the controversy associated with the election of the speaker and subsequent charges directed at a small political faction Buy a Pentagon bag for one of its candidates.

“The liberation of Iraq from terrorism is an achievement for the government in four years,” Abadi said.

“There is no separation between me and the Dawa Party,” he said.

“I did not hold the premiership, and before any change was announced, I was not sticking to the post,” he said.

“I did not intend to stand for election. I faced a challenge. Some of them told me that your decision was to give up your approach. I had the option of giving up after the election results, to be responsible for the last moment.”

“It is not right to say that I put the second mandate, the most political blocs wanted to get the second mandate, but I insisted that my mandate ends, because Iraq is liberated, and the people want services now.”

“The blocs said that postponing the elections in your favor to extend an additional two years, but I do not use the resources of the state for electoral purposes.”

“I know that the prime minister in the next stage either to do your hand absolute, or not to do,” he said, “so I looked for a reason to get out of the premiership.”

“There is a conflict within Iran regarding intervention in the region,” he said. “The situation in Iraq is the victim of the internal Iranian conflict, and the intervention to impose an Iranian vision in Iraq is not in the interest of Iran’s strategy.”

Abadi said that “the overthrow of governments in a short period is not in the interest of the country, and the completion of the government is important for the country,” but considered that “the submission of ministers without an audit is not true, and did not happen before.”

He added, “I did not nominate an unqualified minister in his biography, criminal, accountability and justice,” stressing that “Abdel-Mahdi is responsible for this because he did not check the biography of his ministers.”

On the mutual accusations about the sale and purchase of ministerial portfolios in the government of Abdul Mahdi, Abbadi said, “It is a dangerous approach, in the presence of a few dominate the scene.”

“I call for a thorough and thorough investigation into all these charges to restore people’s confidence in the political process,” he said. “Some MPs are willing to provide evidence of charges of buying and selling positions.”

He stressed that “the conquest and the rest received the lion’s share of the government of Abdul Mahdi”

“The official and formality is still the head of the popular mobilization, and Abdul Mahdi did not change the decision of my appointment,” he said, adding that “change this decision may take six months.”

“He rejected the positions of Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs, after an offer.”

On the dispute with Faleh al-Fayyad, Abadi said, “There is no personal quarrel with Fayadh, a security official in the state, but he has engaged in political action, which is not allowed.”

“He can practice politics, but he has to resign from his three positions.”

“Fayyad told me he would withdraw from his security posts and did not withdraw, and decided to remove him for the country’s interest, because his position is not political but security belongs to a state, and used his position for political purposes.”

As for his relationship with the Secretary-General of the Dawa Party, Abadi said, “I met with al-Maliki after my departure and my friendly relationship with him, on a personal level.”

Abadi said that the most important decision was to “launch the battles of liberation of Fallujah and Mosul, and took it as a fate, and was against the decision of some factions.”
