Khandan - showed signs of cracks within the coalition, the Iraqi Shiite, in which he criticized the leaders of the private Maliki's coalition introduced a single political away from the coalition to form a government, prompting its leader, al-Jaafari to unity.

Maliki was pointed out during a meeting with representatives of foreign diplomatic missions in Iraq yesterday, that the coalition electoral presented a document to the political forces, including his vision for the requirements of the next stage, which pointed out that it put the foundations to form the next government, and stresses the need to abide by the constitution and the unity of Iraq, and refused to approach sectarian, and establish balanced relations with all countries based on non-interference in its affairs , and rejected interference in Iraq's affairs.

They discussed the developments in the political scene and found several points, including: adherence to the National Alliance and the objection to the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki, for breaches committed by him by offering a government program and a political candidate away from the National Alliance, "Shiite
They indicated that they had discussed "the development of standards for the selection of head the next government, and decided to form a joint delegation to communicate with other national powers. " and the Iraqi National Alliance political coalition that includes a number of Shiite forces announced the formation of Iraqi Prime Minister former Ibrahim al-Jaafari in August 2009. before expanding to include the forces of other Shiite and called the National Alliance Iraqi.
Subsequently he met a delegation from the National Alliance, headed by the President of the National Congress, Ahmed Chalabi, with Ibrahim Jaafari, head of the Shiite alliance, where the parties stressed the need to intensify constructive dialogues between the blocks of the National Alliance; to maintain unity and cohesion in order to achieve the goals broken and face the challenges of the next phase.

committee said in a statement that it has continued its discussions and heard a number of opinions constructive atmosphere positive interactive, and agreed to maintain the unity of all components of the National Alliance, and decided to hold another meeting to resolve the views of the masses of the proposals before it.
" The five coalitions small has announced over the past four days to joining Maliki's coalition, and is increasing the number of seats that have been awarded so far to reach 112 seats, as he continues his contacts with the other forces of the alliance with aspiring to achieve a parliamentary majority enables him to win a third term, and the formation of the government The new Iraqi by receiving half the seats in parliament's 328 seats plus one.
It is noteworthy that other forces to Maliki's opponents are making contacts and dialogues currently in an attempt to succeed in the Declaration of the Alliance of Anti achieve a parliamentary majority to deprive al-Maliki of the third term, which is looking forward to it. about "Culture"
tlar The pot is brewing. Maliki is attempting to get the 165. The coalition will not stand for it so this will get testy before the end of the month. As long as Hakim and Sadr and a few others hang tight, Maliki will be hitting a brick wall.
This will sort itself out before the June parliament meets, and IMO the SOL will stop fighting this battle as they come to finally realize Maliki is unable to aquire 164 plus one.
He remains short in the NA itself not to mention if the SOL takes this nomination to the floor of the new parliament. If that happens and he does not have the 165 he will be voted out.
Even spending state funds attempting to bribe leaders of blocks, he is still only at 112. That's 53 short of the goal. Another problem the SOL and Maliki are facing is that 40 MP'S in the SOL itself cannot be countered on to vote yes for Maliki and these are the same MP'S that the SOL has been counting as part of the SOL claiming they are locked in step with their leadership.
These 40 attended the meeting put on by Hakim to choose another leader other than Maliki. Maliki faces a daunting task to get his third term mandate and I personally don't believe he has a chance.
The SOL will drop him like a hot potato if he can't show them that additional blocks of size are joining. Blocks that are firmly with the coalition against a third term.
As of this date he has only managed to collect an additional 19 MP'S according to this article. These consist of very small blocks of 2-3 MP's total each. These were most likely acquired through bribes bringing his total to 112 MP'S of which 40 of these the SOL can't really count on. tlar
tlar Barzani: we'll deduct 17% of the oil revenues, and we will hand over the rest to Baghdad
Wed May 28 2014 14:26 | (Voice of Iraq) lsumaria News / Baghdad
The head of the Kurdistan Regional Government Nechirvan Barzani, Wednesday, that the province will charge 17% of the oil revenue and the rest would be handed over to Baghdad, adding that the province could export 250 000 barrels per day, was charged with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to "cut" the salaries of the staff of the province.
Barzani said during hosted in front of Parliament today and I followed with "Alsumaria News", that "the province deduct 17% of the oil revenue and the rest would be handed over to Baghdad," noting that "the province exported oil and oil according to the law issued by the parliament in 2013."
Barzani said that "the region can currently export 250 000 barrels per day and that he was seeking to raise exports to 500 000 barrels per day, the end of the current year," he said, adding that he was "ready to subdue the export of oil to the parliament of Kurdistan to view all aspects and in all transparency."
Barzani stressed that "the region follows the same mechanism carried out by SOMO in the sale of oil and is committed to transparency," pointing out that "the export is an important step in the direction of economic independence for the region."
He continued, Barzani said that "the Kurdistan region he has two choices: either the delivery or take a step to export oil," and accused "al-Maliki to cut the Territory's budget and staff salaries."
And hosted by the Parliament of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, earlier on Wednesday (May 28, 2014), head of the provincial government Nechirvan Barzani to clarify the causes of the financial crisis in Kurdistan and the export of oil to the world market, while stressing Barzani of the parliament that the constitution where there is no clause empowers the SOMO exclusively sell oil.
He criticized Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, on Tuesday (May 27, 2014) during a meeting at the Government Palace, the heads of missions of foreign countries operating in Baghdad, the powers of the Kurdistan region of Iraqi oil exports without coordination with the central government, describing the process as akin to "theft."
And demanded the Oil Ministry, on Tuesday, the Kurdistan region to stop oil smuggling across the border immediately and to disclose the fate of the financial revenues of the activities of oil over the past years, and in believing that this is a violation of sovereignty and national wealth, bore any destination, company or person involved in the purchase or transfer of this oil and criminal legal consequences arising therefrom.
It is noteworthy that the Oil Ministry announced that, in (23 May 2014), for filing a lawsuit against the Ministry of Natural Resources in the Kurdistan region for its oil exports without the consent of Baghdad, confirmed the start of legal proceedings against Turkey and company Botas for violating the agreement signed between the two countries in 2010.
The Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz announced, in (22 May 2014) that the Kurdistan region of Iraq began exporting the first shipment of crude oil through the Turkish port of Ceyhan on the Mediterranean despite the conflict has existed since a long time with Baghdad about the sharing of oil revenues
Tlar This is honorable by the Kurds. Maliki and Shahri8stani will get their fair share of 83%. They, Maliki and Shahristani willo just have to do their stealing somewhere else.
By the way, I too think the Kurds have already made a deal with Hakim and the coalition but it cannot be announced until the nomination process is done and Maliki is out. I believe that's why this month the Kurds started shipping oil again for the first time in months.
It amazes me that Shahristani and Maliki have let the dispute fester to this point. Look at all the revenue that has been lost fighting over control of the money.
This must have been the biggest source of funds stealing from the Kurds, for Maliki's slush fund, or why in the world would it have come to this. Everything is metered and transparent.
Bagdad will get its share and yet Shahristani wouldn't let go of control of the money.
