The political scene in Iraq is witnessing an escalation between the political forces, which has created fears and anxiety among the people about the transformation of political competition into Saddam, more than 5 months after the holding of the general elections. Those fears were reinforced on the eve of the electoral session scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday), to choose a president of the republic.
With the exception of the congratulations that former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, a member of the (coordinating framework) gave yesterday to the trio coalition (Save a Homeland), which consists of the Sadr Movement (Shiite), the Democratic Party (Kurdish) and the Sovereignty Alliance (Sunni), the coalition was met with threatening statements issued by groups Close to the “framework” and its associated and pro-Iranian factions.
The statements of the remaining members of the “framework” were filled with threats to the Kurdistan region and the (Salvation) coalition if they insisted on passing the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s candidate, Reber Ahmed, in the presidential election session.
As soon as the (Save the Homeland) alliance was announced, the Al-Attar groups doubted its ability to achieve the two-thirds quorum that would allow the vote on the President of the Republic. It will become clear that the guarantor third is guaranteed.”
Abu Ali al-Askari, who is close to Kataib Hezbollah, also launched an attack on Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi, and warned him against passing the Democratic Party candidate, Reber Ahmed.
