Baghdad … News Time

Protesters in Iraq have once again expressed anger against Iranian intervention in their country. During this time, a third fire broke out in the Iranian consulate in Najaf, between Tuesday and Wednesday. Meanwhile, a stir in politics has led to the resignation of Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi, who resigned to form a new government in the capital Baghdad. Iraqi parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halbousi requested the Iraqi president Tuesday evening to nominate candidates for the ministry within 15 days. According to the French news agency, Lebanese organization Hezbollah has also been active in the process of forming a new government in Iraq. An Iraqi source close to the decision-making bodies in Baghdad said that Qasim Sulaimani, the head of the Al-Quds force in the Iranian Revolution and Mohammad Khorasani responsible for Iraqi affairs in Hezbollah, nominated Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi. Are trying according to the source, Sulaimani is currently in Baghdad while Mohammad Khorasani is also playing a major role in convincing Shia and Sunni political forces in this regard. This progress comes at a time when protests against authorities have continued in several southern cities in Baghdad and Iraq over the past two days. The Iraqi people believe that Iran has the most influence over their country, especially since Suleimani, the head of the Holy Spirit, is presently in Iraq.

Adil Abdul-Mahdi:

Remember, on the one hand, political forces are busy looking for an alternative to the resigning prime minister; on the other hand the Iraqi parliament is considering a new electoral law. As a result of this law, the number of MPs in parliament and the representation will expand. However, this is insufficient in the context of protesters who want to abolish the sectarian quota system in the division of positions, even some who want to abolish the parliamentary system. In the wake of a public protest in Iraq beginning October 1, protesters demanded employment opportunities and public services. Later, these demands also included the complete reform of the political system. The basis of this political system was laid by the US after the fall of Saddam Hussein’s government in 2003. One of the main demands of the protesters is the political class change in the country, which is accused of corruption and the destruction of national wealth. It should be noted that Iraq is considered one of the richest countries in the world in terms of oil.
