Baghdad | Yesterday's statement of "religious reference" carried a clear call for "elites and competencies" to enter the political game through early legislative elections, in accordance with a law that takes into account "young people", and withdraws from the "adults" exclusive parliamentary representation. A seemingly candid call to lift the lid on the current forces and parties, which the statement called for the formation of a "non-controversial" government, with differing interpretations as to what they meant. Some argued that the "reference" put a veto on the nomination of Qusay al-Suhail, while others felt that its position does not tolerate this interpretation. Especially if it is taken into account that what hinders the commissioning of Al-Suhail so far is the delay of Barham Saleh – for his calculations – issuing the mandate statement, which prompts the alliance "Construction" to begin motion to dismiss him. In the midst of this, the square is in a state of relative calm, which was burned late last night in a number of southern provinces, with attacks on government and party headquarters, in the light of a Gulf media outright media inciting the street against Iran and its Iraqi allies.

Al-Akhbar has learned that the Al-Akhbar Coalition (Al-Fatah coalition led by Hadi al-Ameri, the Rule of Law, led by Nouri al-Maliki, and others) and its allies, Sunni and Kurdish, are in the process of launching a parliamentary movement to remove President Barham Saleh from office. The movement, according to the information, is based on the Iraqi Constitution, specifically Article 61/VI, b, which provides for "the exemption of the President of the Republic, by an absolute majority of the number of members of the House of Representatives, after being convicted by the Supreme Federal Court in one of the following cases: perjury in the constitutional oath, violation of the Constitution, or high treason". Parliamentary sources indicated, in her talk to "News", that the charge against Saleh is to violate the constitution and circumvent its articles, specifically Article 76, which stipulates that "the President of the Republic is assigned the candidate of the most numerous parliamentary bloc to form the council of ministers, within 15 days From the date of the election of the President of the Republic. Article 81/II emphasized the "assignment of the President of the Republic (when the office of prime minister is vacant for any reason whatsoever) as a candidate to form the ministry, within a period of not more than 15 days, in accordance with the provisions of Article 76".

In the background of that charge, the sources explain that Saleh filed an urgent request to the Federal Supreme Court, which included the definition of the "largest parliamentary bloc", to authorize it to nominate a prime minister after the resignation of Adel Abdel Mahdi. In a meeting with the President of the Republic last Thursday, Al-Banna presented his candidate for prime minister, minister of higher education in the caretaker government Qusay al-Suhail. Saleh was quoted as saying that he "assured the delegation of the building block, after meeting with representatives of the demonstrations and social events, that the candidate does not meet the conditions put forward to ensure social peace. He will not present it at this time, and will not submit any of the other names put forward before clarifying his role in the selection as President of the Republic. It is in the interest of the Constitution, and before the Federal Court decides on the mechanisms for declaring the largest bloc in this sensitive transition". An answer from which the representatives of The Construction understood that Saleh wanted to buy more time, even in himself.

The Supreme Federalist has already answered the question of the "Largest Bloc" after the 2010 legislative elections, saying that "the largest bloc is the largest group of deputies in the first parliamentary session, not the bloc that led the election results". In this context, the sources point out that Saleh's current need is "the failure to register the presidency of parliament, in the first legislative session held in the fall of 2018, the largest bloc," although "construction" and its allies. When nominating Al-Suhail, collected their signatures and submitted them to the presidency, proving that they The "largest bloc", however, insisted that the president of the republic not to follow what they had submitted, which was promised by them "in violation of the Constitution", and "in violation of an agreement held last Thursday, to issue a book commissioning Al-Suhail on Friday afternoon". While the president's sources say that Saleh adheres to the statement of the "supreme religious authority" (Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani) on the one hand. And the court referendum on the other, political sources believe that the man seeks to keep himself in front of the street as his "guarantor", and at the same time to stay away from any confrontation between Al-Ameri and Sadrist leader Muqtada al-Sadr will be the "scapegoat" in it.

On the line of assignment, Al-Suhail is still the most fortunate to be in the old position. According to the information, the man is continuing his preparations to take over his duties in the next few hours, with the expected release of the mandate book on Sunday at the latest. Al-Suhail held a series of meetings with party representatives, most recently with delegations from Sunni and Kurdish forces, to hear their demands. This came at a time when the "reference", yesterday, in its weekly statement, called for "not long delay in the formation of the new government", while it emerged that "the government must be a non-controversial government", which was followed by a number of tasks assigned to the next ministerial composition, especially the restoration of the prestige of the state Calm the situation, and hold the upcoming elections in a reassuring atmosphere away from "the side effects of money or illegal weapons and foreign interference". While some went on to explain the position of the "reference" that there is a "Vito" by it on the Sohail, others denied the existence of such a thing, saying that it meant "not to delay or delay and procrastination as usual with previous governments, and also not to enter the exchange of selling positions and buying bags as happened Previously".
