Al-Ugaili: The failure to form a government may place Iraq under UN tutelage

The political analyst, Sabah Al-Ugaili, warned against Iraq’s return to UN tutelage, in the event the political parties fail to choose the President of the Republic and form the new government. 

Al-Ugaili told Al-Maalouma, “The Kurds are trying to link the file of the Presidency of the Republic to the Shiite house and the agreements on the new prime minister, while the Shiites have made up their minds to choose Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani for the position of prime minister.” 

He added that “the political process is waiting for the Kurds to decide their candidate for the presidency, so that Al-Sudani is assigned to head the government, especially since this personality is acceptable to most political parties.”

And he indicated that “Al-Hanana has become outside the political game because of the withdrawal of its deputies from Parliament, and therefore there is nothing left but the framework that can put pressure on the Kurds to resolve their issue and present a personality for a vote in Parliament.” 

He pointed out that “and if the government is not formed, Iraq may be under UN tutelage again, which opens the door to a crisis greater than the formation of the government, which requires the framework to take the initiative role to resolve the presidency, whether by presenting a candidate or several candidates to implement the 2018 scenario.”   link

Washington to Iraq’s leaders after the “year of failure”: you were not able to resolve your differences and engage in a non- violent dialog


The United States called on Iraqi political leaders to hold a “broad and comprehensive” dialogue in order to form a new government and not to resort to “unacceptable” violence, while indicating that a year after the early elections, they were unable to resolve their political differences.

The official spokesman for the US State Department, Ned Price, said in a statement marking the one-year anniversary of the early Iraqi elections and seen by Shafak News Agency, “A year ago, Iraqis voted in early and credible elections in the hope that it would result in a government that reflects the will of the Iraqi people. Since then, Then, Iraq’s leaders were unable to resolve their political differences.”

“The United States supports a broad and inclusive dialogue to chart a common path forward, and we join many of our Iraqi friends in stressing once again that violence is unacceptable, and we call on all parties to take a peaceful and inclusive path out of the current political impasse,” Price added. “.

“For now, the United States remains committed to partnering with the government and people of Iraq to promote economic growth, create more jobs, ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS, end corruption, and increase resilience to the effects of climate change,” the State Department spokesperson added.  link

A year of political failure” .. Iraqis without a government: sarcasm and resentment, and Guinness welcomes you

It is the first day after a year of apparent political inability to form a new Iraqi government, as Iraq’s leaders did not succeed in dissolving its symbols after tug-of-war and “intermittent wars”, demonstrations and political withdrawals, so that Iraq will emerge in the end (zero government), and early elections will be in (October 10, 2021) just an event that the Iraqis practiced at the time to be on a date with the next unknown, amid sarcasm and black comedy from the scene in which the ruling political class entered Iraq “Guinness Encyclopedia” of its inability to form a government, hitting a previous figure recorded for it also in 2010.

The ostrich that does not see a year of failure


It is known that when Iraqis meet and in any forum, they initiate to talk about politics, so what if their day and night are currently a political crisis.

In an evening session for a number of people, inside a residential area, Mr. Abu Wissam, an employee in one of the state ministries, resorts to gathering “session” chairs near his house with a number of his neighbors to have a dialogue and discuss “worldly matters” including, of course, the crisis of forming the new government. 

On the night of October 10, 2020, Abu Wissam says, “The weather is beautiful and it started (breaking) and we entered the winter season, and we hope that there will be heavy rains to compensate for this drought.” 

The person continues, telling Shafaq News Agency, “A year has passed, and let’s say four chapters in which we have not seen a political spring, and every day that passes there is a renewed crisis in the formation of the government, as if they (he means the leaders of the country) are fabricating the crisis within the crisis,” noting that “the last thing they reached is the inability to Iraq has to act economically after (12/31/2022), and the lack of a budget and this will certainly affect us, the employees who do not know, our condition is the case of all groups of the people, about the fate of the country and where it is heading, in light of the rivalries and desires of the people that each have his share and desire, forgetting the concerns The Iraqi people and what we have come to.”

In this company of young men and women, Abu Mustafa asks for “Al-Tawli,” a popular Iraqi game, to have fun with those present, while at the same time they discuss “what comes to mind” of various topics. The man in his sixties, a taxi driver working in the capital, Baghdad, and his wife, an employee in one of the state’s departments, said, “mockingly at the current situation,” that “we should really celebrate what we have achieved.

A whole year has passed without a government, and this is considered an achievement for the ruling political class if it makes its people live for a year” in the vacuum) and we are still waiting for days that may be more difficult,” using a well-known Iraqi proverb (the rope on the tractor) in reference to an open period of time during which a new Iraqi government may or may not be formed. The man adds that “the other problem is that this government, if it is formed, will face other problems and may resign and will not be able to accomplish anything. Things with or without a government do not bode well.”

Abbas, a university student at the College of Political Science at the University of Baghdad, finds that “the paralysis that has accompanied the political process with the passage of a whole year since Iraqi politicians have been unable to agree and form a new government, has begun to affect Iraqi life and is reflected on all segments of society, in light of the daily life crises we live in.” We live today and say that it is better than tomorrow, because the next day may be worse in light of what this political class has brought us to, which thinks only of its interests.”

In his interview with Shafaq News, the university student asks, “Do not the country’s leaders look at the warnings, appeals and international calls that are issued and warn Iraq against not forming the government, the latest of which is the opinion of the UN envoy, Jenin Plasschaert, which is an explicit warning of the possibility of imposing guardianship on it, so why do they put their heads in the dirt like ostriches or they see the imminent danger to Iraq.”

His colleague Roaa Essam shares this fear by saying that “a year has failed without a government, and a government that is formed is also threatened with failure, and a new preparation for early elections, and a new government, all of which means that this political system must accept reality and step down from power because it is the source of the crisis and not a solution because it cannot offer something to the Iraqi people, who have suffered scourges and wars and are satisfied with them.

We should not live the tragedy of a war here and there in order to form a government that may or may not continue, and the only winner is the politician and the loser is the people. The university student added to Shafaq News Agency that she “began to be afraid of work, so we do not know what will happen tomorrow, and we are living according to the common Iraqi saying (live today for the day).”


Among the crowded cars lined up near the University of Baghdad, a flower seller wanders around to sell it to passers-by, students and car owners. It seems that he was in a hurry to summarize the entire Iraqi political scene and a whole year of crises in one word, after being asked about the Iraqi situation, and he said, “She is ruined”, which reflects the extent of the Iraqi street’s dissatisfaction with the situation in light of this crisis, which appears to be continuing, at least in the foreseeable future.

Iraq enters the Guinness Book of Records

And with the advent of Thursday, 7/28/ 2022, Iraq entered the longest period of political “stalemate” after the elections and the failure to form a new government by 291 days, exceeding the previous delay in not forming a government in 2010, which ended in former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

A Reuters report at the time, seen by Shafak News Agency, said that “more than nine months after holding elections in October, the lawmakers tasked with choosing a president and prime minister did not come close to agreeing on anything, so that Iraq recorded a record period of 290 A day (until yesterday, Wednesday), without a prime minister or government,” noting that “the longest previous period without a government in Iraq was in 2010 when 289 days passed without a government until Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki assumed a second term in office.”

With the passage of a whole year since the “failure” to form the government, it seems that the records are broken only by the current political class, after 366 days of not forming a new government.

Blackshart warns, guardianship looms

On October 4, 2022, the UN envoy, Jenin Plasschaert, gave a briefing to the UN Security Council on the situation in Iraq, in which she confirmed that differences prevail over the language of dialogue, and that the southern provinces are witnessing armed skirmishes and the political class is unable to resolve the crisis, indicating that “disappointment “The people have reached the sky. Many Iraqis have lost faith in the ability of Iraq’s political class to work for the benefit of the country and its people. Continuing failure to address this loss of confidence will only exacerbate Iraq’s problems.”

The UN envoy pointed out that “the political system and the system of governance in Iraq ignore the needs of the Iraqi people. The rampant corruption represents a major root cause of dysfunction in Iraq. No leader can claim that he is protected from it. Keeping the system “as is” will rebound with negative results.” With this briefing, Iraqi politicians warned of an international tutelage over Iraq, whose political leaders are “incapable” of finding solutions and the apparent inability to form a government. This trusteeship system applies to countries that are defined in international law as “deficient in sovereignty”, and are subject, according to special conditions, to an agreement that is supervised by the Trusteeship Council of the United Nations.

The international trusteeship system came as an alternative to the mandate system that was applied during the era of the League of Nations, which was replaced by the United Nations with its establishment in 1945, in order to settle the situation of the colonial countries in accordance with international legal legitimacy that moved them gradually from a situation of complete colonialism to a transitional situation followed by complete independence.

These international developments and internal discontent come after the “failure” of political attempts to break the political stalemate, as the entire political process resulted in the election of Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi and the Presidency Council of the Parliament that broke up and began to spin in a vicious circle after the resignation of the Sadrist movement’s representatives, including Hakim al-Zamili, First Deputy To the president, Al-Halbousi returned again and asked to resign again, and his resignation was rejected by the coordination framework, which became the largest bloc with seats that benefited from it following the resignation of the Sadrist movement’s deputies, so that the rejection of Al-Halbousi’s resignation would be a new vote for him to remain in the position, with the election of Mohsen Al-Mandalawi as the first deputy speaker of the House of Representatives to succeed Al-Zamili.


His old man and Wan Abdullah will remain as a second deputy, with a clear inability to agree on the candidates for the presidency and the ministers, despite the coordinating framework’s adherence to his candidate, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, who seems to have great difficulty in passing his formation or even remaining a candidate in light of the refusal of whom.”The Sadrist Movement and the Octoberists”, provided that the attempts to storm Parliament are not far from the objectors, and things may develop beyond that through the use of weapons between the opposing parties, which the Iraqis do not aspire to, of course.
