Deputy For Al-Fateh: The Coming Hours Will Witness A Surprise That Satisfies Everyone

The representative of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Salem Al-Anbaki, suggested, on Monday, the occurrence of a surprise solution that satisfies all political parties in the coming hours.

Al-Anbaki said in an interview seen by “The Information”, that “the name of the national majority on the next government is completely incorrect, as the conditions of the country do not allow this at all.”

He added, “The majority must be met by a national opposition by choice and not by force, and the circumstances are not completely prepared for that,” expecting “a surprise with a solution that satisfies all parties in the coming hours.”

And the representative of the State of Law coalition, Dergham al-Maliki, had warned in a previous statement that Iraq would enter a constitutional vacuum if the country’s president was not elected, while he confirmed that intensive meetings would be held to reach an agreement on forming the government and choosing the president of the republic  link

Don’t they just continue with the caretaker government,which can’t really do much?

I think either Sadr plus the Kurds will make a decision, or the federal court will appoint someone. Either way, Maliki will not win.

I can’t see continuing the caretaker government indefinitely….I think the federal court will step in, if the stalemate continues….Usually, when the legislative branch causes a constitutional crisis, the judiciary steps in to solve the problem.

He attributed this to “the weak banking culture and the lack of confidence in the banking system, which kept many from dealing with local banks.”

The expert explained that “deposits with Iraqi banks increased by 15% to reach 93 trillion dinars, after it was at the beginning of 2020 81 trillion Iraqi dinars,” noting that “the ratio of cash outside the banking system to the volume of deposits is about 75%, which is a high percentage.
