[SWFloridaGuy] Things are heating up. Maliki is almost out of time. It appears that with or without him, we are moving forward along with the economic future of Iraq. Maliki is scrambling to comply, or at least appear compliant, to the 9-point ultimatum letter that he received.
One of those 9 points was calling for the adoption of Erbil. More than an agreement, Erbil is a schedule of legislative priorities that include several items that have a history of being very complicated and difficult to implement.
At this point the only thing signed by Maliki, Allawi and Barzani is the trillateral document which refers to the strategic council. The Sadrists are prepared to remove Maliki and there are no more opportunites for procrastination. To remove Maliki requires 163 votes and it appears that they may have them at this point or at least close enough to scare Maliki into compliance.
[SWFloridaGuy] Implementing a broader power-sharing policy would empower his opposition but it would also ensure that he has a political future, which right now is in question. ,,

Soon we expect to see seated ministers, not acting (interim) ones lacking parliamentary approval, the adoption of Erbil and more services provided for the Iraqi people. Maliki's enemies have united and one way or another, we will have a successful National Meeting and a resolution to this political crisis.
Upon reaching that stage Shabibi will have another meeting with the Finance Committee and they will agree that the political atmosphere is favorable to remove the zeros and raise the exchange rate of the IQD. In short, these next few days could solve all our problems!!
