I just read the agenda for Parliament tomorrow [Monday]: “Ninth: The second reading of a bill defining the mandates of the three presidencies. (Legal Committee). (Article 8).” which tells me – PLAINLY – they are moving ahead with reforms – at full speed.
What does this do? It seals off a Maliki third term… should he somehow evade all the pitfalls between here and there – term limits would effectively kill any chance he would have for a third term as PM.
Had they done THIS ONE THING long ago – there would have been no ISIS. No Anbar… no crisis – Maliki would have had no option… or big need to reshuffle the voting electorate/districts…which was at the very heart of where we are now.
