“Iraq Elects New President” – Thurs. AM-PM TNT Thoughts/News 10-13-22



Iraq’s parliament elects Abdul Lateef Rasheed as president For months, political rivals have been at loggerheads over who should be the next prime minister and the country’s next president:

From kadhimi. We congratulate Dr. Abdul Latif Rashid on his election as President of the Republic of Iraq, and we wish him success in his mission, and we call on all political forces to cooperate and provide him with support.

Abdul is new President, Prime Minister next !!!

As I understand it, Rashid appoints the prime minister & he has chosen Sudani.

11 minutes ago tweet Sinan S. Mahmoud @sinansm · 11m #Iraq: Mr Rasheed immediately just tasked the nominee of Iran-backed Co-ordination Framework for prime minister post Mohammed Shia Al Sudani to form the government

In the end, all it took for Iraq to get its act together was a threat by the UN to take over the government. Perhaps this is good to be known for next time.

Now we are screwed the white papers plans will now be history IMO ,I SO HOPE NOT


The white papers were officially approved. They cannot be set aside.

rvalready remember what u just said about white papers ,AL Sudani has his agenda which is not aligned with Al kazimi white paper agenda IRAQ changes anything at anytime nothing is set in stone for them , one party agenda is different from the other IMO

Cuteboy, Iran would be really stupid to mess with the white papers at this point. That would bring Sadr’s folks into the streets, and have the UN very angry. If s Iraq tries to not implement the white papers, international support will be withdrawn

Get ready folks, we are going to the bank.

I agree Yada. All we need now is word from the CBI to begin exchanges. The CBI is unlikely to expose the date or give a back wall. They will just spring it on us.

I think Sudani will need to do the RV soon to make the people and Sadar happy.. time will tell IMO.. Everyone wins , Once we get the RV

The UN and EU and US did not want this. They wanted Kasemi.  So, we wait to see what Sadr, and the citizens who wanted Kasemi, will do.  The ball is back in Sadr/citizens’ court.


I’m guessing the banks will be on high alert starting now

The framework will do nothing to jeopardize Iran’s position. Iraq will RV, Iran will RV, and all will be well.

with the Iranian control Iraqi Prime minister? Are we going to see the RV at all now?

Stranger, I am sure Iran and the UN were in the loop. This is a win, win situation

seems like people are afraid to believe it is going to happen this time. I say just have positive expectations and go with the flow

Iraq came very close to being taken over by the UN. And Iran came very close to losing their gravy train. I think they both know who is in control now.  The UN let them play their games for a year, and then enough was enough.

Still Waiting:
So are we waiting to see if the pro Iranian Prime minister acts in Iran’s interest? If he doesn’t a Sadr led insurrection is likely?

If Sadr was upset, you would have heard by now…I  think this was all a back room deal, with everyone involved, as is usual for Iraq.

Definitely agree about a backroom deal those guys replies we’re very fast in the media and everything else as soon as he was elected the nomination was in the nominee already said hes got his cabin it lined up that was really fast they are… Definitely had it planned in advance

rv: I tend to agree with you on the backroom deal. The lack of riots, the lack of news about Sadr being upset, no news about more than usual Roman Candles coming into Iraq from Iran, in the context of this very late date, makes it seems like they all know the end game.

Believe Sadr knows he can still wield his force with this government than with a UN appointed one. This way the UN can not do anything to them while they settle their differences…. At this point, with the president in place. The rest is just appointments


Of course, the entire last year could have been stagecraft, all planned in advance. We will never know….makes you wonder if world events are not scripted in advance, and we just watch the movie

They told us it would all be over real quick, and they delivered.

Iraqi parliament elects Abdul Latif Rashid as new president

Al-Jazeera-Engish:  Oct 13, 2022

Lawmakers in Iraq have elected Kurdish politician Abdul Latif Rashid as the country’s new president, paving the way for the formation of a new government and ending a year of deadlock.

He replaces fellow Iraqi Kurd Barham Saleh as head of state after the two-round vote in parliament on Thursday, winning more than 160 votes against 99 for Saleh, an assembly official said.

Rashid, 78, is a British-educated engineer and was the Iraqi minister of water resources from 2003 to 2010. He has 15 days to invite a nominee from the largest parliamentary bloc to form a government.
