Tlar Originally the coalition had hoped to bring the SOL around to their way of thinking and then put up all the positions in one basket and usher in the new government on one vote.
This has proven almost impossible and 15 days later the plan apparently has been changed. The new plan is to chop this tree down one chop at a time. In other words one position at a time.
It will be interesting to see if once the government is set, everyone but the PM position, will the SOL still stay the course and still nominate the toxic Maliki or will they finally come around.
It will take a few days voting everyone in but the PM and there is still hope for a Maliki resignation.
Barring that happening, the coalition still holds all the cards. If the SOL nominates him he will be voted out immediately. I am just supprized that it took them two weeks to come to this conclusion. tlar
