Happy Wednesday Dinarians,
Today, LJ posted his comments and analysis of the newest News Articles put out today, which adds to his analysis from their call last night. Here is his update, which is VITAL for you to read and share with other Dinarians in our community.
[12:43:01 PM | LJ’s NEXT Step: *********
Reportedly Maliki/ state of law party has harvested roughly 1 million votes in the Iraq 2014 elections. Why is this relevant? Well, most don’t understand the complexity that goes into seat distribution in a 328 member parliamentary body. It is not business as usual as the Sainte-Laguë system changes the game. It has been mentioned time and again that not one party in Iraq’s recent parliamentary elections have been able to achieve more than 80 seats; making it virtually impossible for Maliki to return as prime minster for reasons i explained on the call last night. Also it is vital to utilize a little math to best approach the insignificance of Maliki’s often mentioned one million votes.
Fact: 20 million represents the number of registered voters in Iraq of 34 million souls.
Fact: 60%, of the above number represents 12 million eligible voters who participated on April 30, 2014.
Fact: the seats obtained by parties will be instrumental in determining by majority who will prove, by consensus, to be selected and accepted as the next prime minister of Iraq.
Factually about 11 million votes in Iraq were not cast for Maliki, that’s the lion’s share of votes, which represents 91.67%. That share went to other individuals from other parties. These parties will set the tone and environment for the next Gov’t of Iraq and will change the course toward Iraq’s process of real growth.
We must stick to the facts and not let numbers be used to paint a picture of uncertainty in the eyes of their people.
Maliki’s disinclination pertaining to the realization that his tenure is up finally has started to surface. He is trying to work out not being tried for the atrocities he and his administration have committed. He has no support for his style of leadership. No support from those that expected to be part of a consensus government, no support from a world (U.N.) that sees his intent for the trajectory of Iraq as disingenuous, no support from the Sunni, no support from the Kurds – who say if he realizes another term they believe they can make it without a relationship with Baghdad and finally no support from his own Shi’a contingent that previously supported him in the last 2 administrations showing discontent with his ever increasing inability to lead Iraq out of crisis as he is the cause of most if not all of their problems.
Keep the faith and the facts close to your vests as you read articles that sensationalize events vs. Painting real accounts of what is really happening in Iraq.
I hope LJ’s perspective and insight to the current real Iraqi news has given you some sanity over the absolute GARBAGE which is being spewed out on you, me and our community by these Hack Gurus like Tony TNT, Okie, Dan (PTR) and many other want-to-be Hacks!
