The government is complete, and al-Amiri resigns: Will the “Alliance of Conquest” break apart?


Baghdad | After the last Iraqi parliamentary session, which was held last Saturday, the federal government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazimi has become complete, after the candidates were given the seven vacant bags to “trust” the parliamentary blocs. There was no change in the list submitted by Al-Kazemi to the Speaker of Parliament, Muhammad Al-Halbousi, a few days ago: Fouad Hussein, Minister of Foreign Affairs despite shy “reservations”, Ihsan Abdul-Jabbar for oil, Hassan Hammadi for Culture and Tourism, Ivan Faiq for immigration and the displaced, Alaa Obaid for Trade, and Muhammad Karim Fit for agriculture, Salar Mohamed for justice. Parliament has also authorized the Head of Government to create a new portfolio for the State Ministry, which will be granted to Turkmen.A scene that pushed Al-Kazemi to say that “completing the ministerial cabinet with the House of Representatives voting on the names we presented is an additional motive for implementing the ministerial curriculum, and fulfilling the stage entitlements and commitment of our promises to our people,” to confirm later, during the special session of the Council of Ministers, that his government “put plans to overcome the big challenges On the financial side, the Corona pandemic and the collapse in oil prices. ” And while he said that “the poor administrative system hindered many projects,” he stressed that “after completing the cab, we start practical steps as one team to overcome the challenges.”
Al-Kazemi records that, compared to previous governments, he was able to fill the various vacancies in a record period, but there are those who ask about the mechanism or how of this “filling”, and did Al-Kazemi ultimately acquiesce to partisan-sectarian “quotas”, a contribution again to its promotion? The answer here, and from a prominent political source, indicates that the man is “compelled” to take into account internal balances, especially that his government is not with independent technocrats, but is inoculated with political faces, but rather “salvation first, transitional second, and de facto third.” The source does not rule out, in an interview with Al-Akhbar, Al-Kazemi’s submission to some pressure, but he was finally able to “fill the vacancies in record time … He must be given some time before judging his performance, especially since the crises in Iraq are exceptional and impose exceptional patience.” ».

There are theories that al-Amiri may take over as head of the “crowd” rather than Fayyad

On a parallel line, the banner of the resignation of the leader of the “Al-Fateh Alliance” (a parliamentary bloc comprising the blocs supporting the “popular crowd”), Hadi al-Amiri, came from Parliament, and his appointment to the leadership of the “Badr Organization” Abdel Karim Younis Ailan (Abu Maryam al-Ansari) as his replacement. In a clear legal violation, any movement of this nature is considered to be within the powers of the “Independent High Electoral Commission”. Al-Amiri’s move may be a prelude to “heavy” surprises, the most prominent of which is the breaking of the “Al-Fateh” contract. He also transmits more than one source who spoke to “Al-Akhbar” that the “Al-Fateh” leaders have expressed their dissatisfaction with the man’s performance. .
This “theory” is paralleled by other theories that indicate that Al-Amiri may take over the task of the head of the “crowd committee” instead of Faleh al-Fayyad soon, and this is what more leaders in the “crowd” denied. Likewise, it has been said that Badr is in the process of rearranging its “inner house”, and this is why Al-Amiri, who sought to be one of the leaders of the “Shiite house”, stepped away from any representative position, as a “permanent” candidate for prime minister. In the crowding of theories, the “theory” of the “open” contract keeps its high shares due to the wide difference in opinions between the components of the alliance. This has been translated several times into various benefits. The last was during his government formation. This “theory”, if realized, will be in the interest of the “Sadrist movement” and its leader Muqtada al-Sadr, who will be able to invest this well. He will not meet a balanced bloc that will meet him, and this has repercussions on the political scene as a whole.
