Agha said in a statement received by Alsumaria News, “The upcoming sessions of the House of Representatives will be dedicated to determining the day of the session to elect the President of the Republic in accordance with Articles 70 and 71 of the Iraqi Constitution, in the presence of two-thirds of the members of the House of Representatives.”
He added, “As an electoral merit, size and weight, the Democratic Party has the right to present its candidate for the presidency, who is Riber Ahmed, and this right was used by the other components in the presidency of the House of Representatives and in the prime ministership.”
Ali Agha said, “It is in the interest of the Iraqi people that the parties that insist that the position of the President of the Republic be from a particular party, and this matter was left by the Sunnis as well as the Shiites in the positions of the presidency of the House of Representatives and the ministers, so it is in the interest of the National Union not to cling to this culture.”
He suggested, “Two methods are used in the matter of agreeing on a candidate for the Kurdish house for the presidency of the republic, which are: either going to one reference, which is the parliament of the region, to nominate a candidate for the presidency of the republic, or adopting the electoral weight and merit in the process of choosing the party that presents a candidate for the presidency of the republic.”
He explained, “The Shiite house’s agreement on Muhammad Shia’a Al-Sudani to nominate for prime minister, we respect him, and he is a national figure, and I dealt with him personally, and he is close to everyone.”
He pointed out, “There is a meeting held between President Masoud Barzani and Bafel Talabani, and they reached advanced levels of understanding, but the issue of renewing Barham Salih as President of the Republic, this will not happen, because Salih has lost his political compass, and it is not acceptable in the political space.” Who accepted Muhammad Al-Halbousi for the presidency of the House of Representatives, and Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani as the prime minister.
And he continued, “Saleh’s clinging to this position is what created the political blockage, as he has problems with the coordination framework, and problems even within his party.” LINK
