Sadr refuses to comment on the withdrawal of confidence from al-Maliki with the deadline set! + Analysis by MrIQD

HAT TIP:  Iraq4AllNews.dk


Happy Thursday Friends,
Well, the news has been really “quite” for the “news” we really are looking for.  Don’t get us wrong, there is plenty of stuff out there, but most of it is recycled or no better than what we were getting in yesterday.
So, the point being, we are not ignoring you, we are just not trying to flood you with tons of news that you can get on other sites, we want to find the gems and comment on only those few, like this article.  🙂
What we read in to this article, is basically Sadr is the kingpin of this whole movement, he is not saying anything to the meeting about his deadline because there must have been a last minute proposal of compromise by Maliki.
Probably what is happening is he is keeping quiet to the media on purpose to let the political blocks consider Maliki’s proposal of compromise.
It is our assumption that in the interest of Iraq and their Constitution, it would be best for Maliki to stay!  Only because it would mean that he agreed to the Erbil power sharing agreement and the Ministers are seated.
As frustrating as all this is for all of us, we believe that the fastest way to seeing the CBI.iq release the RV would be for Maliki to agree to Erbil and move forward with the power sharing agreements, HCL etc.
Well, we’ve chewed our fingernails down nearly to the bone, this waiting and anticipation is certainly stressing all of us out, but as we have always believed… “It is much better to have patience, rather than become a (mental) Patient!”  LOL!!!

Rejection of the cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, on Thursday, to comment on the question about the withdrawal of confidence from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki with the deadline set by him, and when he said he did not receive a response from the National Alliance on his message so far, he noted that the decision whether or not to stick to demands will be determined during the next few hours.

He said Moqtada al-Sadr during a joint press conference held today in Najaf with the leader of the Iraqi National Congress, Ahmad Chalabi, said that “We have not received a response better and for worse on our message to the National Alliance until the yen,” asserting that he expected “to complete the period granted to him during the next few hours and then will answer you. ”

Sadr refused to reply to a question on the subject of withdrawal of confidence from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, after the deadline set by him, which ends Thursday.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Leading Iraqi Lawmakers Threaten Vote of No Confidence

HAT TIP: The IQD Team


By Raheem Salman | Reuters – 6 hrs ago

Four of the most senior political leaders in Iraq’s fragile coalition have threatened to bring a vote of no confidence in the government unless “autocratic decision-making” stops, a letter published in a state newspaper on Saturday said.

Iraq’s Shi’ite, Sunni and Kurd coalition began to creak in December, after U.S. troops left, when the government tried to remove Sunni Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq and issued an arrest warrant for Sunni Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi.

Those incidents intensified long-running tensions between the Sunni and Shi’ite blocs that have hampered the government’s ability to pass key legislation.

The Baghdad government and the autonomous Kurdish region are also engaged in a simmering row over oil exports.

The four senior lawmakers – Osama al-Nujaifi, Masoud Barzani, Iyad Allawi and Moqtada al-Sadr – sent the letter to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s bloc on Thursday, political sources told Reuters.

Some of Maliki’s opponents, including Barzani and Sadr, have accused him of becoming a dictator and several of his critics say he deliberately sidelines Sunnis and Kurds.

The letter outlines eight demands to be met by May 13 to ensure the four leaders’ support for Maliki’s administration.

“In case of a refusal to comply with the principles and frameworks of this agreement, practical steps will be taken, within a period of time not exceeding 15 days, to act upon a vote of no confidence against the government,” the letter says.

The letter is dated April 28, the last day of a three-day mini-summit held by the leaders during which they said they tried to find a solution to the political impasse.

Maliki did not attend the meeting, which was held in the Kurdish capital Arbil.

The letter called on the government to stop interfering with the security forces and with the work of parliament and contained a paragraph criticizing autocratic decision-making.

“Putting an end to any kind of one-man decision-making in the government pyramid and a tendency towards autocracy,” the sixth demand reads.

The letter also demanded that a two-term limit for the post of prime minister be retroactively introduced. Maliki is serving his second four-year term as prime minister.

“(This is necessary) in order to ensure a peaceful transfer of power and to establish the foundations and principles of democracy and in order not to allow a climate of dictatorship,” it said.

The sole Shi’ite signatory of the letter, Sadr, has a history of acrimonious relations with Maliki.

Maliki’s bloc met on Thursday and pledged to hold a meeting of all of the coalition’s political blocs within a week to hammer out a solution to the crisis, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, chairman of the coalition, said in a statement on his website.

URGENT NEWS!!! Source: "Parties in the National Alliance will be on the blocks and Khuzaie Shahristani instead of Maliki"

HAT TIP:  Baghdadiya News


Photo Courtesy of Baghdadiya NewsFolks, this is truly HOT NEWS!!!  According to the source, within hours Maliki could be replaced with either Shahristani or Khuzaie as Prime Minister!!!

This shows that the Political Blocks have had enough of Maliki’s antics and stall tactics, not to mention his high levels of corruptions which as you may remember extends to stealing possibly $Billions of dollars from Oil Sales!!!  Which explains why Maliki was so darn mad at the Kurds for making their “own” contracts with Exxon and other Oil Companies! 

But, lets not get too excited, even though replacing Maliki would appear to be a HUGE STEP FORWARD for activating the Power Sharing Ageement, Erbil and eventually our RV of the IQD Currency, we must be patient!  It could happen right away, or it could happen this time next year!    🙂
