The conflict of international agendas… is it what delays the formation of the Iraqi government

Hoshyar Zebari, a leader in the Kurdistan Democratic Party led by Massoud Barzani, called on the political parties in Iraq to take what he described as a step backwards to save the country, stressing that the country is in a serious predicament.

This comes hours after the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, announced his abandonment of forming the government for a period of 30 days, and moving to the opposition during this period, opening the way for his allies, “Sunnis and Kurds” to ally with others.

Where is the process of forming the Iraqi government going?

On this subject, the guest of the “ Iraqi Concerns ” program on “ Sputnik ” radio, the journalist writer Abbas Al-Shatri says:

 “It seems that things are heading towards a political blockage without any signs of a breakthrough in the crisis. Rather, we find that the political parties are going towards more complexity, but we must not forget the presence of regional and international sponsors for the political process in Iraq.

 For example, there is clear American sponsorship as well as from the countries of the region, as well as There is a Gulf agenda in this regard and a Turkish one, and the issue of the American-Iranian conflict is also casting a shadow over the process of forming the government and the delay in its completion, but I do not think that the results of these political differences in Iraq will reach a societal clash, although the situation has reached the bone-breaking stage, which is Which leads to the emergence of the international player to resolve the issue, as it is not in the interest of the United States nor the interest of the countries of the region that the situation in Iraq slip into unimaginable consequences.


 Al-Shatti added: The difference in this political process is that it came after a popular struggle and an uprising that led to the amendment of the electoral law, and that the percentage of participation in the elections was small and did not exceed 20%, which led to the Sadrist movement obtaining a large percentage of the votes and its emergence as a large Shiite bloc within the Shiite incubator

The same, which prompted Mr. Al-Sadr to demand a majority government, which the coordination framework rejects, as it gives him a feeling that he will exit the political process with no nostalgia. link
