Chattels   Kurds should expect a difficult but decisive four years ahead By Arif Qurbany http://www.rudaw.net/english/opinion/04052018

Chattels     " the outcome of the forthcoming Iraqi parliamentary election will be as decisive for the future of Iraq in general, especially for the people of Kurdistan. It will put an end to the transitional phase.

The real identity of Iraq will be fixed after this election, which will end the rivalry for the identity of the country. The next four years will be the time to change legal and constitutional bases in light of the new Iraq that will be decided by this election."
Chattels      " ................ the result of this election will lead to majority rule in the parliament. And this will put an end to these rivalries and will lead to a one-man show in the country."

Davechattels How many election cycles have we heard about art 140,amnesty,federal court laws?

Dave      ...fingers crossed

Doug_W      Baxter what channel?

chattels     Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk    Statement of clarification from Sistani's office on this sermon statement:   via @BalsamAwni

Baxter    doug.. NBC

chattels    Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk
The language of this "clarification" I interpret as being aimed as not being framed to so clearly focused on Maliki but the political class more broadly. But then for whom does one vote when all the major blocs are led by establishment figures?

Baxter      I think in about 10 min Doug
Baxter      they have to have 10 million dollar commercials before the muddy race

chattels      Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk
And of course, if you take this statement literally, as opposed to contextually, it doesn't really help Abadi, a former Maliki ally whose list is filled with former Maliki MPs, or Allawi, who headed one of the said corrupt previous governments, or Ameri, who served in one.

Doug_W      ty

Baxter     You should have seen the line of corporate jets parked at the airport... sickening

chattels     The above point includes all coalitions - so I think that not only will Maliki lose to Abadi and Ameri, and very likely Sadr's Sairun, he could easily end up with fewer seats than the KDP (which should also lose seat) and possibly the Nationalist Coalition (Allawi-Jiburi-Mutlak). - Sowell

Baxter     Lets all pray that Maliki and his goons... dont get one seat....

chattels      Maliki isn't really in contention for a return to office, as some continue to suggest. I expect his State of Law Coalition will come in 4th, maybe 5th or 6th among blocs. - Sowell

chattels" ............ for the first time in many decades there is real hope for Iraq."

chattels     " ............ the optimism about Iraq is not baseless. It is always good to have an optimistic outlook, but there are genuine indicators that the hope about Iraq’s future is realistic."

chattels     " The first indicator is that regardless of Iraq’s current situation, Iraq had and still has a lot of potential. "

chattels     " The second important indicator is that for the first time, there seems to be a direction the country is moving towards, and it is not downwards."

chattels      " The third important indicator is that Iraq is showing leadership."

Mchattels1001 Iraqi Thoughts commissioned a public opinion survey in Iraq to gauge the popularity of competing parties ahead of parliamentary elections scheduled for 12th May. The nationwide poll was conducted between 22-28 April featuring 3,032 randomly selected telephone interviews across all 18 provinces. Sampling was weighted against population size and gender on the provincial level to ensure fair representation.

​chattels     The results show a number of key findings:

chattels     Some 60% of people overall support a second term for Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi. His popularity is highest in the three liberated provinces of Ninewa, Salahadin and Anbar. Even in the Kurdistan Region, Al-Abadi enjoys support from over 50% of those interviewed.

chattels      The popularity of Haider Al-Abadi’s Victory coalition consistently ranks highest among the competing lists with 24% of the vote share, while there is a close race for second place among Moqtada Al-Sadr’s Sa’iroon coalition and Hadi Al-Ameri’s Conquest alliance.

Meanwhile, Nouri Al-Maliki’s State of Law appears to be far less popular in Baghdad than it was in the 2014 elections, and will likely pick up most of its seats from the southern provinces including Karbala and Basra, where Maliki still retains a strong support base.

chattels     The popular vote as to a favored coalition is decidedly for Abadi's Victory list. Three to one as to Sadr and Ameri and almost 5 to 1 as to Maliki / State of Law.

chattels    Six (6) days remaining until the election.

chattels   Abadi will win, it's just a matter of how many seats. Being PM and forming a government is another issue though Sajad Jiyad سجاد @SajadJiyad https://twitter.com/SajadJiyad?lang=en
