Will Al-Sadr Succeed In Stopping His “Opposing Train” Towards The Republican Palace?
Posted On2022-09-30 By Sotaliraq It seems that the success of the session to renew confidence in the Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi, and the selection of his first deputy from the coordinating framework, two months after the suspension of parliament’s work, will motivate the framework and the forces allied with it to hold other sessions to choose the president of the republic and ratify the new government.
Perhaps these developments come in light of the lack of clear international or regional support for the proposals of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to change the political process in Iraq, remove those who are currently at the fore in the political scene from all affiliations and form a new political system in the country.
This happened in conjunction with the transition of Sadr’s former allies in the Sovereignty Alliance and the Kurdistan Democratic Party to the direction of the coordination framework, which resulted in the announcement of the State Administration Alliance to be an alternative to the tripartite alliance that Al-Sadr formed before his withdrawal from Parliament last June.
Fears of new clashes, as happened at the end of last August in the Green Zone, which resulted in the killing of about 100 people, prevent Al-Sadr from making any major protest movements for fear of such confrontations and the complete collapse of the security situation.
And it seems that Al-Halbousi is trying to return to normal life in the House of Representatives by inviting the parliamentary committees to carry out their work in preparation for the parliament’s resumption of its work, especially after he succeeded in holding its first sessions after months with a full quorum. Rather, the sessions have been postponed until further notice, and the goal may be not to provoke al-Sadr and leave room for dialogue.
The Director of the Iraq Center for Strategic Studies, Ghazi Faisal, expects that the holding of the vice president election session will be the beginning of other sessions that will pave the way for the session to choose the president of the republic and assign the prime minister.
Faisal said that “the political situation has now reached a stage that some of them believe is the solution, but it is imposed by accepting the fait accompli by the coordination framework on the rest of the forces,” noting that the political blocs can hold a session of Parliament and discuss some details and basic principles for conducting matters in preparation for the election of the president and the assignment of a president Ministers to go to legislation.
There Are No Solutions
Faisal expressed his lack of optimism about the formation of the new political body, which he considered contradicting the constitution, which indicated that the parliamentary majority forms the government with the presence of a national opposition, considering that the catastrophe produced by sectarian quotas and consensus policies is the absence of opposition, as there is consensus in decisions and everyone is not held accountable. All, which resulted in administrative corruption and the silence of the parties on the mistakes of other ministers.
He pointed out that “the coordinating framework is not a party, so it is sometimes contradictory in trends and positions, at the level of strategies, and at the level of its connection with political references, and there is no unity of decision or ideology that unites them.”
The Difficulty Of The Majority
Essam Al-Faili, a professor of political science at Al-Mustansiriya University, believes that it will be difficult to achieve the large majority that was chosen for the Speaker of Parliament in the process of choosing the President of the Republic, warning of the massive demonstrations that will sweep the country.
Al-Faili said that “some of the deputies present for Wednesday’s session came to support Al-Halbousi, and therefore it is difficult to achieve the same consensus in the parliament session regarding choosing the president of the republic because there are reservations from some deputies, because the government will be a framework, and this is what they reject altogether,” stressing that there is a high volume of pressure that will be exerted. From the Sadrist movement, especially since it did not move on the ground regarding the demonstrations that took place in Tahrir Square.
There Is No Dialogue
He added that Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi said that there should be a dialogue, but there are no details about the dialogue and its outcomes and terms, pointing out that the Speaker wanted Parliament to remain active, and therefore there are a number of measures taken by parliamentary committees and recommendations in this matter.
Al-Faili explained that the session did not last more than half an hour, but its repercussions caused paralysis in the street and demonstrations, indicating that Al-Halbousi does not want to form a government that runs on blood, because he and the Kurds are more reading the political scene.
He considered that any mobilization will not be limited to demonstrations only, but rather an open, high-level civil sit-in and expand to the southern governorates, stressing that the security forces will not be able to confront the matter, which will lead to the closure of all outlets of the Green Zone, and therefore the only solution is to reach understandings with al-Sadr.
While political researcher Ali Al-Baydar says that Al-Sadr delivered a message to the parliament session, and his reaction would be stronger if another session was held to choose the president of the republic.
He added that “Al-Sadr conveyed a state of anger and dissatisfaction with what is happening, which generated security incidents regardless of who bombed the parliament, but it seems that he conveyed a message of dissatisfaction that must be taken into account.”
Al-Baydar suggested that the escalation would not be limited to this level, but rather exceed it, which leads to a clear loss on the security level and even the economic aspects.
And about the possibility of a large parliamentary presence in the session to choose the president of the republic, he stated that “the parliamentary system in general is pushing for a presence in the depth of the authority and its presence in the interests of interest,” noting that “everyone is waiting for al-Sadr’s reactions, what will he do? How will he deal with the crisis?? And the
Al-Baydar ruled out that “Al-Sadr will negotiate, according to his conviction, the unqualified, and try to keep the scene in a state of turmoil. LINK
