Shafaq News/ The commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Ismail Qaani, arrived on Tuesday in the capital, Baghdad, on an unannounced visit.

 

Qaani recently held a round of talks in the capital, Baghdad and Najaf, in which he did not reach results that would lead to a Shiite consensus on forming a government.

 

An informed political source told Shafaq News Agency, that Qaani will hold meetings with the Iraqi political forces, to discuss the file of forming the new government, and the latest results of the negotiations between the coordination framework and the Sadrist movement.

 

Attempts to enter parties from the coordination framework in a national majority government that Muqtada al-Sadr is confronting, jointly with the Kurdistan Democratic Party, and the alliance of those who advanced headed by Muhammad al-Halbousi, and Azm headed by Khamis al-Khanjar, faltered.

 

This was confirmed by al-Sadr, when he expressed his explicit rejection of the participation of the head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, in the government of the national majority that he seeks to form.

Al-Sadr said in a televised speech, followed by Shafak News Agency, "I invited Hadi Al-Amiri, Qais Al-Khazali and Faleh Al-Fayyad to participate in the majority government, provided that Al-Maliki did not participate, but they refused to do so," adding, "The coordinating framework forces mortgaged Al-Maliki's participation by her coming to Al-Hananah and we told them: Your comfort."

 

 

 

 

Shafak News has learned that the comprehensive coordinating framework of Shiite forces is trying to persuade Al-Sadr to form a "settlement government", in the event that entry into a unified Shiite bloc that includes all parties fails, and this proposal enjoys the support of specific Iranian parties.

However, the private discussions between al-Sadr and the coordination framework did not reach a specific agreement, in addition to al-Sadr's rejection of the framework's attempts to include Nuri al-Maliki in the new government synthesis

Shafaq News/ An informed political source revealed, on Tuesday, that the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Ismail Qaani, informed the leaders of the coordination framework of the necessity of entering the government of the national majority advocated by the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr.

A scapegoat to protect Al-Maliki from Al-Sadr

 

The source pointed out that "Qaani hinted at giving al-Maliki guarantees that he would not be held accountable for the files that al-Sadr was waving about, as well as preparing a ram and referring it to the concerned authorities under the banner of holding those involved in corruption and waste of public money accountable, not to mention other requirements and this is the task of the Iranian official who asked the framework to resolve position and not to forfeit a last chance to unite the Shiite house without al-Maliki.”

 

The source suggested that "Tehran would accept the scenario of a national majority government led by al-Sadr, not out of fear or in order to preserve its interests in Iraq, but rather in order to overcome a crisis afflicting its international negotiations related to the nuclear file."

 

Conditions of the coordination frame on the chest

 

The source added, "The meeting of the leaders of the coordination framework today is supposed to lead to decisions that are in line with what the official in the Iranian-Iraqi file aspires to bring down the curtain on the negotiations and controversy of the framework and al-Sadr, and the issue of forming a government will be resolved quickly."

 

He stressed that "the framework forces will set conditions for al-Sadr in return for joining him in his next government, including granting the Ministry of Interior portfolio to the Shiites exclusively, in addition to preserving the ministerial entitlement for its components."

 

The commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Esmail Qaani, arrived today, Tuesday, in the capital, Baghdad, on an unannounced visit.

The "Coordination Framework" meeting will be held at Al-Maliki's house (Getty)

It is expected that the Iraqi political forces allied to Iran, affiliated with the " Coordination Framework Forces ", will hold a critical meeting during the next few hours, coinciding with local reports, the accuracy of which could not be confirmed from independent sources, stating the arrival of the commander of the " Quds Force " in the Revolutionary Guards The Iranian general, Ismail Qaani , to Baghdad, on an unannounced visit, which is his second in less than two weeks. 

And according to what informed political sources in Baghdad confirmed to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, the meeting of the "coordinating framework" forces comes to discuss the coalition's options after the decision of the Federal Court, which rejected the appeal against the legitimacy of the first session of Parliament.


The Iraqi capital, Baghdad , has  witnessed rapid political developments hours ago, after the judiciary issued a ruling on the constitutionality of the first session of Parliament, and canceled a previous decision to suspend the work of the Speaker and his two deputies. Several political blocs, including Kurdish ones, held various meetings, amid conflicting and differing opinions regarding the remaining constitutional period for electing the president of the republic, after the judiciary rejected the case to challenge the legitimacy of the first session of parliament, which resulted in opening the door for candidacy for the presidency, as the constitution stipulates a deadline Only 15 days from the date of the invitation. 

An informed political source in Baghdad told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that "the coordinating framework forces will hold, this evening, an important meeting in which they will discuss the Federal Court's decision on the constitutionality of the first session of Parliament, as well as the latest results of the dialogues with the Sadrist bloc. The meeting may also be taken in it." An important decision for the coordinating framework forces about going to the opposition or about boycotting the political process."

On the other hand, the leader in the coordination framework, Aid Al-Hilali, said, in a telephone conversation with Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, that “the meeting of the coordination framework, which will be held at Al-Maliki’s house (former Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki ) this evening, will be very important, and there will be an important decision regarding The future of the framework in the political process in Iraq. 

Al-Hilali indicated that "the forces of the coordination framework are seriously considering the issue of boycotting the political process, or the participation of all parties to the framework in forming the new government with the Sadrist movement , and there is no third option for the coordination framework at all," he said.

He stressed that "the coordinating framework insists on the participation of all its parties, led by al-Maliki, in the new government, and will not give up any party in order to participate in the government that the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr wants to form, and this matter was informed by al-Sadr, and he never retracted it." 

Meanwhile, Iraqi local reports said that the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, General Ismail Qaani, is arriving in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on an unannounced visit, to hold meetings with Iraqi political forces, to discuss the file of forming the new government, and the latest results of negotiations between the coordination framework and the current thoracic; 

And local Iraqi news agencies quoted sources as saying that Qaani's new visit to Iraq "will not be limited to holding meetings with Shiite political forces only, but also extend to other parties."  

Al-Araby Al-Jadeed was unable to confirm the accuracy of the reports that the Iranian official had arrived in Baghdad, but a prominent politician in Baghdad, who asked not to be named, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that he was "expected to return, if not now, then he will arrive." Later," without confirming the news of Qaani's arrival or not.

The crisis of government formation in Iraq is taking an ascending trend between the "Sadr movement", led by Muqtada al-Sadr, which seeks to form a "national majority" government, and the forces of the "coordinating framework" allied to Iran, which rejects al-Sadr's proposals and wants a consensual government. 

The apparent rapprochement between the "Sadr movement" and the alliances of "Azm" and "Progress" and the Kurdish forces, and their orientation towards forming a national majority government, raise the fears of the "coordinating framework" of limiting its options for the next stage, which prompted it to search for a way out of the crisis.

I have asked the following question before and received no explanation.

Iraq and Iran are two separate countries, are they not?  so why is it that Iran is allowed to participate in Iraqi  politics? It would be like Mexico having a say in the politics of the USA. Me thinks.

Because its not like that at all. The mid-east has been chopped up and country lines redrawn many times. Iran is a shiite dominated country and Iraq is one of the only other shiite majority countries in the mideast. Many muslims consider themselves of their religious tribe well before any kind of patriotic tribe. Like it or not Iran and Iraq will be connected in some way as long as Islam is alive and well.

LMAO!!! So the Iranian terrorist regime is willing to throw their puppet under the bus to keep in the Iraqi government….

I don’t think Al Sadr has the authority to give Maliki immunity.

This is starting to get good….

Shafaq News/ The commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds force, Esmail Qa'ani, urged the Coordination Framework to conserve the structure of the "Shiite home" and join the Sadrist movement's "majority government", a source revealed on Tuesday.

 

The source, who preferred to remain anonymous, told Shafaq News Agency, "the official in charge of the Iranian-Iraqi security file, Qa'ani, urged all the forces of the Shiite consortium to preserve the form and the content of the Shiite home and accede to the conditions of the Sadrist movement leader, Muqtada al-Sadr."

 

The commander of the Quds force called on the forces of Shiite Framework to redistribute their electoral weight under a single leadership.

 

"The Coordination Framework shall regroup under the name of al-Fatah alliance and pledge allegiance to revive the Shiite home under the leadership of al-Sadr and form a government," the source said.

 

"Qa'ani hinted at granting al-Maliki guarantees that he would not be held liable for the corruption files al-Sadr was brandishing in his face; instead, a scapegoat will be prosecuted. Those guarantees, among a set of others, will be worked out by the Iranian commander as soon as the Framework makes its mind up," the source continued, "Iran is not concerned about its interests in Iraq, as much as it is concerned about overcoming the crisis tampering with the nuclear talks."

 

"The Framework's meeting to be held today is expected to commensurate the Iranian commander's aspirations to finally drop the curtain on al-Sadr-Framework controversy and settle the issue of the government."

 

"The forces of the Coordination Framework will have a list of conditions to join al-Sadr's government. Most notably, al-Sadr shall grant them the Interior portfolio in addition to the ministerial entitlement of its blocs."

 

The leader of the Sadrist movement on Tuesday said that he would not share a cabinet with the head of the State of Law Coalition, Nouri al-Maliki.

 

Al-Sadr said in a televised interview, "I invited Hadi al-Ameri [head of al-Fatah (Conquest) alliance], Qais al-Khazali [the Secretary-General of the Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq movement], and Falih al-Fayyadh [the head of al-Aqd al-Watani (National Contract) bloc, to participate in the national majority government, without al-Maliki, but they refused."

 

"The forces of the Coordination Framework said that their visit with al-Hannana is contingent upon Al-Maliki's participation in the government. We said: as you wish."

 

"The national majority government is a demand of the political forces. The people are not satisfied with the former governments."

 

"The [Coordination] Framework rejected combating corruption at the moment. One of its leaders said it will make the prisons crowded."

 

"The Marja'iyah is disappointed with the politicians," he added, "some parties are sullying the good name of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces-PMF). We want to organize it."

 

Qa'ani on Tuesday arrived in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on an unannounced visit to resume the talks over the formation of the Iraqi government amid an ongoing row between the Sadrist movement and the Coordination Framework.

 

Garnering the support of the leading Kurdish party (Kurdistan Democratic Party-KDP) and the two leading Sunni blocs (Takaddom and Azm), the bloc of the firebrand Shiite cleric -the biggest in the October 10 election- has been mobilizing impetus behind a "National Majority Government", challenging the status quo "consensus governments", which the forces of the Shiite Coordination Framework have been lobbying for.

 

al-Sadr has said he will ally himself with whoever puts Iraq's national interests first. That is an indication, Iraqi officials and Western diplomats say, that he may exclude some Iran-backed Shiite blocs in favor of parties with cross-sectarian support.

 

The Sadrist bloc emerged as the clear winner with 73 seats in the 329-seat parliament. Al-Takaddom party, one of two main Sunni political groups and led by the speaker of the outgoing parliament Mohammed al-Halboosi, followed with 37 seats. Former prime minister Nouri al-Maliki's State of Law bloc came third with 33 seats.

 

The Iran-backed al-Fatah Alliance, won only 17 seats, compared with 45 in 2018.

 

The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) won 31 seats, while Kurdistan Alliance led by the rival Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) won only 17 seats.
