Ayatollah Sistani’s recent statement and his special emphasis on the need for the government to meet the demands of citizens showed that intelligence on the movements of foreigners, while effective demands from the government, is a requirement.
Abdul-Mahdi al-Karbala’i, the representative of Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Sistani, a prominent religious figure in Iraq, in his Friday prayer sermon in Karbala, reiterated the need for peaceful demonstrations in the country: “Citizens’ demands under the agreed roadmap have a good chance of being implemented within a certain period of time, ending corruption, quotas and a lack of social justice.”
The Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar examined the statements of the Iraqi authority and reported: “These statements were widely welcomed by supporters of the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi and were considered” historic “; Because this speech gave the Iraqi government an opportunity to start reforms. This newspaper, quoting informed political sources, outlined the path of fundamental reforms in Iraq as follows:
First; The passage of a new electoral law that gives away more opportunities for independent candidates, away from large party coalitions.
Second; Changing the Electoral Commission as the main part of “the system of pervasive corruption in government institutions.”
Third; Prosecution of corrupt individuals and bringing them to justice, eliminating “corruption circles”, councils and official bodies that are subject to sectarian and partisan quotas, such as “offices of inspectors general” or “provincial councils”, which provide a huge source of revenue for parties and stakeholders. Are.
Fourth; A fundamental change in the structure of government, which includes half of the ministers, and the replacement of young technocrat ministers under the age of fifty with current ministers.
Fifth; Implement immediate reforms at the level of the Prime Minister’s Special Team and avoid appointments based on quotas or the consent of political factions.
Sixth; Suspension of appointments based on the rule of “smuggling” or “sale” or submission to the will of the political spectrum. (There are currently 6,000 vacancies); Because giving in to the prevailing mentality in appointments and accepting the mechanism for dividing appointments for parties and factions has negative consequences for the government and the prime minister.
“These reforms are subject to the permission of the Iraqi authority in Najaf,” the newspaper quoted Iraqi political sources as saying. But political factions, such as the Al-Fatah Coalition (Iraq’s second-largest parliamentary faction), have pledged their support for the authority and will support the government in the reform process, based on specific timetables.
Informed sources told Al-Akhbar that the deadline for monitoring the government’s performance will not be more than three months and that the people and the authority will not accept any delay in implementing the reform promises; “Because there will be no other opportunity. This is the final opportunity and any delay is not in the interest of the government and the prime minister.”
The sources stressed that fundamental reform guarantees the government’s continued work, but any inefficiency in fulfilling the reform promises is a sign that people will return to the streets and start protests. The Iraqi government spokesman explained that with the resignation of the government, demands The demonstrators will not be answered, he announced the draft of two laws on elections and the fight against corruption in the government of “Abdul Mahdi”. Reacting to some whispers about the need for the current government to resign, Iraqi government spokesman Saad al-Hadithi said that the resignation of the government did not meet the numerous demands of the people who have been protesting for weeks. Abdul Mahdi’s government will turn it into a government of progress, so this government will remain in power if the parliament is dissolved and new elections are held or another political party is appointed in the parliament to form a new cabinet.
A spokesman for the Iraqi government said: “This will not satisfy the protesters present at the peaceful demonstrations. He added that in the event of a change of government, the government would no longer be able to submit a bill to parliament for approval. The government of Adel Abdul Mahdi is currently working on a draft election law and a draft bill entitled “Where Did You Get It?” It focuses on the fight against corruption and focuses on all the movable and immovable assets of current and former officials in Iraq.
Al-Hadithi stressed: The resignation of the government complicates and intensifies the current crisis. The current government does not oppose early elections, but the mechanisms of these elections are within the powers of parliament and the constitution. Holding elections in the shadow of the current constitution does not achieve the goal of the demonstrators participating in the peaceful protests. He added: “The current protests in Iraq are a very good reason for the government to overcome a series of obstacles in the reform process. The second round of protests in Iraq began on October 1, resumed on October 25, and now several Iraqi provinces, including Baghdad; The capital is witnessing popular protests for political reform and improved government services. However, some political parties, taking advantage of these demonstrations and riding on the wave of popular protests, announced that the way out of the current crisis is the removal of Adel Abdul Mahdi.
Meanwhile, the Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement urging the protesters to make peaceful demands and stressing that some of the protesters’ actions had nothing to do with democracy. “The criminal and terrorist acts are clearly aimed at undermining and undermining the sovereignty,” the statement said, which was broadcast on official Iraqi television. “And targeting the Iraqi people and security has been accompanied by demonstrations.”
“Such actions, including the deliberate and unjust killing of civilians and security forces, have nothing to do with the democratic process,” he added.
The statement went on to say in detail that the sentence for incarceration and punishment for sabotage was to set fire to the homes of innocent citizens and the headquarters of security forces and official and quasi-official offices from detention to life imprisonment, as well as incitement to incite Demolition of buildings takes less than 20 years.
