HAT TIP: The Currency News Hound
It looks like they have the votes!
If we are seeing this in the public news, then what is really happening behind the closed doors should be very exciting!
It is VERY ENCOURAGING to see a public account of so many members of Maliki’s group not supporting him! Notice, it says “more than 20” – yea, because some will not say until the time of the vote when they see it’s hopeless for Maliki. Which based on this article…. IT’S HOPELESS NOW!!! 🙂
