The Supreme Council, Al-Maliki retract his third mandate
After Sunni and Kurdish blocs resolved file candidates for the posts of my presidency of the Republic and the deputies during the last two weeks, is still the National Alliance and State of law they attract one another talk on the largest bloc and the consequent right to nominate the next Prime Minister, and parties engaged in ongoing negotiations to end the crisis in the poor conditions in the country and at all levels.
Today, the National Alliance, the State of law coalition candidate acceptable to all the blocks, the block, led by the Islamic Supreme Council, Ammar al-Hakim, Tuesday, that "there are positive signs of crisis and break the National Alliance candidate to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers have not stuck to the outgoing Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, to run for Office."
The cluster member, Mohammed Al-Rubaie, said that "there are positive signs of the State of law Coalition might lead to ending the crisis, the Prime Minister candidate by providing an alternative candidate from outgoing Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki."
XXXX: Sort of a misleading headline, but it sure sounds good.
rDiddy: I hate to break it to them, but anyone backing Maliki doesn't get to name the next PM candidate.
Tlar: I find articles like this very miss-leading. I don't think the coalition is negotiating anymore with the SOL. The coqlition tried unsuccessfully to negotiate with the SOL since the announcement of the official election results.
I think that time also has passed and any negotiating going on at present is being done by the coalition with select members of the SOL to pull them away from the SOL..
This is infuriating the SOL leadership because they can't stop it and by now they understand that this will finish them off as a party by being torn apart.
These kinds of articles I believe are composed by the SOL leadership who were blindsided day before yesterday when everybody jumped on the bandwagon declaring the NA as the largest block.
The Sunni's, Kurds, the Shia coalition, al Jubouri and the new president all declared the NA was the biggest block within hours of al Jubouri's declaration.
Al Jaafari also an SOL member and the head of the NA took a little longer but he too declared the NA the largest block. Everybody stone walled the crying and screeming from the SOL.
They thought because 95 MP's running under the SOL banner were elected, this insured them the largest block status only to be reminded even they had signed that document in 2010 declaring the NA that legal status.
