_ 9:58 AM [BGG] Now - I know at first glance - this doesn't look great. Relax...this is an Al-Irayia MP (one of Allawi's guys) talking - and this is basically a "veiled threat" to Maliki...if the National Meeting does not go down (and Maliki is the one who has been given the impetus to set the meeting - as a perk) - his goose is cooked!! End of story.
9:59 AM [BGG] They are saying - set the meeting or it gets cancelled (by us) and we do what comes after a failed NC meeting - which is "_ _ _ _ fill in the blanks _ _ _ _ " (not good for the current government)...

10:28 AM [BGG] Ok - the good news here is they are talking about the ministers and a meeting - but these SLC Dufuses are still trying to "nominate" their own picks for ministry posts even though these were supposed to be held by opposition party members...
so like I said - things are good but Maliki is still up to his "last minute tricks" - don't be surprised when they come out of a National Meeting with a new PM or don't hold it at all.
10:28 AM [BGG] It's all good either way...
10:28 AM [BGG] Like I said - with him or without him - it is going to happen.

10:34 AM [BGG] Twilight News / rejection of the Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq, on Thursday, an apology from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki for describing him as a dictator, as the "Apology in this way will harm the dignity of Iraqis," revealing that the cause of the conflict with al-Maliki is to discuss the issue of national balance.
The Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq said in a statement reported for "Twilight New G" that "the reason for the dispute with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki was against the backdrop of our discussion to the issue of national balance in state institutions, the state built in a sectarian and partisan and reflected the subject on the efficiency of state institutions which We wanted to restore efficiency and re-built through the draft national balance. "
"The Prime Minister acted with the case when illegally prevent my staff, and I'm still a deputy prime minister of the exercise of their functions," adding that "governs Iraq today is one party and one person." He Mutlaq, said that "al-Maliki agreed himself to this decision, which was one of the terms of Erbil, the Prime Minister formed a committee of three deputies, Nuri Rose Shaways,
Hussein al-Shahristani, and I, and completed an account of the nature of the balance in the state institutions and ministries that we discovered it does not have the balance until we got to the ministries of defense, interior and national security and here was the big disaster.
" He noted, "there is more than 80 per cent of staff in the higher grades and senior officers in the security ministries are from the National Alliance and the bulk of the Dawa Party, while there are 20 per cent is the share of the rest of the political blocs and the components of national, religious and sectarian Iraqi people."
And al-Mutlaq, "When we raised this issue arose enraged al-Maliki, and during our discussion of the subject at a meeting of the Council of Ministers on the back of the exclusion of a number of deans and professors of universities in Iraq by the writer....
10:35 AM [BGG] and Minister of Higher Education, and told him (Maliki) that we are heading for the implementation of the draft national balance, he replied, and I quote I do not recognize the subject of balancing the national and the sabotage of the state.
" He explained that "the problem has been raised here and turned into an argument inside the cabinet between me and Maliki, who has gone too far in accusing me I do not want to recall what he said now, because that is not appropriate in Iraq and the Iraqis will come on reveal it to the Iraqis and the Arabs what the prime minister to us.
" He said al-Mutlaq, that "al-Maliki is accusing me and I am a Deputy Prime Minister that I linked to Saudi Arabia and I receive the amounts of which, if the Deputy Prime Minister, an agent of Saudi Arabia and receives funds from another country, it is wrong to remain as Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq and it is unthinkable that in Iraq, the problem started from here, not of a descriptive a dictator.
" He was surprised al-Mutlaq of "the truth of this accusation because Saudi Arabia in particular did not interfere in the Iraqi file at all, and I am from Alatben them for taking this position, especially that of the Kingdom of weight in the Arab and Islamic worlds and the interest of our two peoples of Iraq and Saudi Arabia to be Saudi Arabia's neighbor, played an important role in Iraq.
" And on the problem of confidence with him Mutlaq said that "the solution of the problem is to offer to a vote in parliament to withdraw confidence from me and asked al-Maliki, if parliament voted no confidence Vmbrok them, and if not done, the Prime Minister accept that, because we come to a political consensus rejected by the now-Maliki ,
then we come through we vote in the parliament and I asked that the matter to the House of Representatives and I said I would accept any decision whether to vote Democrat. " He expressed his fear of al-Mutlaq, "to be voted in a sectarian If this occurs, you'll end political harmony and national and social."
10:35 AM [newmonies] Da Boss is on FIRE !!!!!! Rockin' the chat room...
10:35 AM [BGG] On the apology from Maliki, Mutlaq said, "If an apology for the dignity of al-Mutlaq, personally and enhance the dignity of Iraqis, I will not hesitate to apologize, on what is important for me is to be restored the dignity of Iraqis and what interests me is to stabilize and rebuild Iraq, but I think that an apology in this way will harm the dignity of Iraqis , this will not apologize.
