chattels: A Review Of Iraq Premier Abadi’s Reform Program, Interview With Reidar Visser

chattels: Abadi is said to be trying to form a new coalition to support him based upon Moqtada al-Sadr, Ammar Hakim and the Union of National Forces. What are the premier’s chances of creating this new grouping and will it be enough to give him a new majority in parliament?

chattels: ” It is fairly clear that there are deep rifts inside the Dawa and the State of Law coalition on reforms, with a substantial if not overwhelming majority siding with former PM Maliki.

Hence the need for Abadi to look elsewhere. The deference with which he treated Muqtada al-Sadr in reports of their latest meeting was unprecedented and could indicate he is beginning to feel the need to rebuild his political base. Whether this can succeed vis-a-vis the reform project remains to be seen.

It likely would entail concessions in the shape of further political appointments, which is exactly what Abadi has been empowered by the clergy to fight against.” – Visser

chattels: ” ……a substantial if not overwhelming majority siding with former PM Maliki.”

Stash: Somebody needs to knock Maliki off.

MzDiva: Ooooo Ooooo let me let me

chattels: Question : Finally, there are increasing reports that Abadi’s opponents not only want to stop his reforms, but replace him. Nouri al-Maliki is part of this camp and would gladly return to office, but might that be a deterrent to move against the premier given all of Maliki’s history, and what chance would another candidate such as Hadi Ameri or another Badr politician have ?

chattels: I would say what seems to be the case is that many politicians are fearing their own privileges through the muhasasa system being at stake. They may probably push ahead with any challenge to Abadi, including Maliki, if they feel their own individual fortunes are sufficiently under threat. – Visser

chattels: political power-sharing deals (muhasasa in Arabic) *

BOBBY: Chattels. …….. what is Abadi s position/ relationship with the Dawa party these days?

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› ‹@BOBBY› He is a member of the Dawa party.

chattels: And, like Maliki, he’s a Shiite Muslim and is a member of the State of Law coalition.

chattels: Reidar Visser, an academic expert on Iraqi politics, says that although Abadi comes from the same political faction as Maliki, he enjoys much broader support, especially from Kurds and Sunnis.

chattels: Abadi has also had differences with Iraq’s Kurdish community at points: Last year he warned that a dispute over Iraqi Kurdistan’s oil exports could lead to the “disintegration” of the country, and he was criticized by Kurdish politicians during the negotiations over the 2013 budget.

BOBBY: Do you think his party affiliations have changed any since taking his position?

chattels: www.washingtonpost.com/ne…


chattels: ‹@BOBBY› No.

BOBBY: Always thought the relationship with Maliki was interesting

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› He may now be looking for new political allies / support.

BOBBY: lol….. was my next question

chattels: He has been a close adviser to Maliki in the past.

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› ” al-Abadi seeks to that the number of seats that front up to two hundred, at least, includes chest Tiare and Hakim, and a group Sunni forces, in addition to part of the Kurdistan Alliance bloc. ”

chattels: ” the pressures faced by Abadi, necessitated his quest to receive the support of al-Sistani in a direct form, especially that against him Front led by al-Maliki and the group of lawmakers in the« rule of law », backed by a group of influential armed Shiite factions in the political decision, Finally it expanded its attempts to overthrow the government. ”

chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Forty Islamic State (ISIS) militants were killed in heavy clashes in one Shingal village alone in Thursday’s assault by the Peshmerga, a Rudaw correspondent reported from the scene. “After the surrounding of Kolat village by the Peshmerga, heavy clashes took place and several ISIS militants wanted to fight off the assault by taking positions at schools in the village,” said Rudaw correspondent Nasir Ali.

He said that ISIS fighters were quickly defeated and “the village was captured by the Peshmerga, killing 40 militants in it.” He added that “three ISIS car bombs were foiled by the Peshmerga at the village.” Meanwhile, Sihad Brazani, commander of Peshmerga artillery forces, said that progress had been slow because ISIS had set bombs on the roads.

“ISIS planted many roadside bombs, which is why we did not advance more rapidly,” the brother of leader Masoud Barzani added. He also called on the United States to provide the Peshmerga the arms they need to fight ISIS, instead of insisting on arms supplies only through the central government in Baghdad. “We hope that the US will review its policy and support us with heavy weapons,” he said.
