[SWFloridaGuy] Maliki is toast! The Council of Representatives are going to interrogate him. An interrogation is the first step prior to the request for his removal. Political parties submitted an application that includes the justification for Maliki's dismissal from his office.
They announced that this interrogation session must be public so the Iraqi people can watch. So, all the gurus who say it's already done and not announced, you may want to pay attention the next couple days. The Iraqi constitution defines two ways to withdraw confidence from the PM according to article 61.
A week after his removal is submitted, the Council of Representatives may withdraw the confidence from Maliki with an absolute majority of its members. The other option would be for the President to file. The meeting in Najaf already has produced a decision for his removal. The reports yesterday that said a BIG and DECISIVE decision had been reached were true.

[SWFloridaGuy] Right now we are just witnessing the necessary, procedural steps that can't be bypassed. First we have the interrogation; next the no-confidence; and finally, once we have a stable GOI and Erbil implementation, Shabibi and the CBI will move ahead with the reforming of their currency project and the raising of the exchange rate.
[Kord] SWFloridaGuy Do you think that could take weeks? or months?
[SWFloridaGuy] Kord A week after they interrogate him we should see a vote and he should be out.
[SWFloridaGuy] Kord I think it will happen quickly.
[Kord] SWFloridaGuy So the GOI and Erbil will take place shortly after the exit of M ?
[SWFloridaGuy] Kord Absolutely
[Kord] SWFloridaGuy Great! Thanks.
