chattels: Is Iraq’s Dawa Party on verge of division? Political rifts and partisan splits are nothing new to the Shiite Dawa Party, the dominant organization in Iraq's governing coalition since 2005. The differences within the party since Haider al-Abadi took office as prime minister in September 2014 are unprecedented, reflecting a national and regional conflict among Shiites.

chattels: The Dawa Party is at the moment divided into two parts. Abadi’s bloc wants to preserve close relations with the United States, keep some distance between Baghdad and Tehran, avoid hostile relations with Saudi Arabia and bring about national reconciliation, including good relations with the Kurds and Sunnis.
Maliki’s bloc, however, has explicitly aligned itself with Iran, is hostile toward Saudi Arabia and the United States to the extent of suggesting Abadi approach Russia and is unwaveringly pro-Shiite, including backing for Shiite militias.
On Oct. 27, the Maliki bloc withdrew its support from Abadi following the prime minister's apointment of Imad al-Khersan as secretary-general of the Cabinet on Oct. 20. Khersan is an Iraqi American who worked with the US occupation administrator Paul Bremer as an American official after 2003. Read more: www.al-monitor.com/pulse/...
chattels: " The animosity between Abadi and Maliki has become conspicuous."

chattels: Another good article today from al Monitor : Is Abadi key to resolving Kurdish conflict? A weak and divided Baghdad has been unable to play an effective role in solving the various central administration-related crises in Iraq, such as the Iraqi Kurdistan crisis.
The opposition is accusing Iraqi Kurdistan President Massoud Barzani of seeking to extend his presidential term, in light of ongoing popular protests in Kurdish cities. Competing political parties are accusing each other of being behind the protests, when for many years the Kurdistan Region had witnessed political stability. Read more: www.al-monitor.com/pulse/...
chattels: ‹@Doug_W› Or neither clearly prevails and Iraq continues to be dysfunctional and stagnated, which is likely Mr. Maliki's plan / edge.
chattels: Under these circumstances, Baghdad must strive to find political solutions by bringing the conflicting parties together and pressuring them to make concessions to ensure political, economic and security stability.
In addition to its symbolic status as the capital of all Iraq, including the Kurdistan Region, Baghdad has what it takes to act as a mediator and settle political disputes in the region, as all Kurdish parties have representatives in the Iraqi parliament and the various government institutions in Baghdad.
It is Baghdad’s opportunity to assume a vital central political position and rebuild bridges between the central government and Iraqi Kurdistan.
Some political analysts argue, however, that Baghdad will not be able to pull it off, as it is preoccupied with equally important problems including its war on IS, the stifling economic crisis and the wave of protests sweeping many Iraqi cities. Read more: www.al-monitor.com/pulse/...

chattels: My comment from earlier re : budget passage - Saturday will finish the month of October and no word on the budget or the Kurdish delegation in Baghdad. We will likely spend the month of November talking about the budget. My understanding under the Parliamentary rules is that the budget is " required " to be completed in the next 30 days with the continuation of Parliament. If so then the budget passage will be two months ahead of last year.
