chattels: Will Abadi resign from his party?
chattels: BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is seeking to form a government of independent technocrats away from the quotas system, the political process that Iraq has grown accustomed to over the past 13 years. Under the system, the political positions are divided according to the quotas distributed among the main components of the country — Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds.
However, the steps that the prime minister is taking in forming the government of independent technocrats has faced obstacles, most notably political and popular demands for him to leave the Islamic Dawa Party with which he is affiliated.

chattels: MP for the Kurdish Change bloc, MP Risan Sheikh, told Al-Monitor, "Abadi intends to form a government of technocrats, and this is a positive step toward reform, but it is difficult for Abadi to head this government as long as he insists on remaining affiliated with the Dawa Party. This is a fallacy and a negative point against the democratic political process."

chattels: One of the protesters at Tahrir Square, Suad Ali, told Al-Monitor, “Iraqis are protesting to demand Abadi to resign from the Dawa Party and to set an example for a government of independent technocrats. If he stays affiliated with the party, I do not see how he could be able to positively head the government or even obtain political and popular support.
A technocratic government should be headed by a person who has no affiliation with any party. His sense of belonging and loyalty should only be to Iraq so that he can [properly] serve the Iraqi people.”

chattels: Without a party / political bloc affiliation it seems to me that Abadi undermines his chances for a second term.
chattels: Article 78 of the Iraqi Constitution points out that the president shall assign the candidate ( Prime Minister ) of the largest parliamentary bloc.
chattels: Ihsan al-Shammari, a political analyst and head of the think tank Iraqi Centre for Political Thought, opines that “the demands for Abadi to resign from his party are part of the struggle and political revenge between parties that do not want to leave the partisan, sectarian and nationalistic quotas system and are still holding onto the power and its luster.”
