    Iraqi Leader Maliki Loses Backing of Shiite Figure and Iran for New Term Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani Comes Out in Opposition to Maliki By Nour Malas July 22, 2014 4:38 p.m. ET Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Associated Press BAGHDAD—Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is losing political support for his bid for a third term from core backers, including the country's Shiite religious establishment and ally Iran, say Iraqi officials. The shift, officials said, is prompting members of the premier's own alliance to reconsider their support and dimming the prospect of his stay in power. In recent days, high-level delegations of Iranian military officials and diplomats held a flurry of meetings in Baghdad and the Shiite religious capital Najaf, where they were told that Mr. Maliki, a Shiite, has lost the confidence of all but his most loyal inner circle, Iraqi officials with knowledge of the meetings said. One Iraqi official briefed on the meetings said Iranian representatives signaled during their visit that Tehran has "really started to lean away from Maliki as a candidate." Also critically, Mr. Maliki's bid to stay in office has, say prominent Shiite politicians, run into opposition from Iraq's top Shiite spiritual authority, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who has become central to the grinding talks between political blocs to form a government. The process, a complicated task of political jockeying that took months the last time around, was given new urgency by the Sunni militant campaign launched last month that has swallowed parts of Iraq and brought the country to the brink of disintegration. Ayatollah Sistani took the unusual step of sending a letter directly to Mr. Maliki's office last week that made clear the cleric's opposition to a third term, a message also made clear to the visiting Iranian officials, said three Iraqi politicians involved in the talks. Mr. Sistani's letter was a sign that he believes the prime minister has become divisive even within his own Shiite support base and is unable to lead the country out of the latest crisis, several Shiite politicians said. Iran played a key role in Mr. Maliki's rise to power, and senior Iranian officials have defended his rule even since the latest crisis began. Ayatollah Sistani has a large following among Iraq's majority Shiite population that has given him a decisive voice at critical political turning points in the past, but he rarely intervenes so directly. Ayatollah Sistani's office doesn't respond to media inquiries. The Iranian Embassy in Baghdad and Iran's United Nations representatives didn't return requests to comment. Iran "will align with what Sistani would like to see," said Hoshyar Zebari, who until last week was Iraq's top diplomat. Mr. Zebari, a Kurd, was replaced as foreign minister after tensions rose between Mr. Maliki and Kurdish cabinet members. He said he couldn't confirm that Iran told Mr. Maliki they no longer supported his continued bid for power, but said "they would not oppose Sistani's judgment or preferences." In Baghdad, some of Mr. Maliki's partners in his State of Law coalition have threatened to withdraw if he doesn't give up his bid for the premiership, said two officials from the broader National Alliance, the umbrella Shiite coalition that is the largest bloc in parliament. A lawmaker from Mr. Maliki's Dawa party, which is one part of the State of Law coalition, said the coalition was holding discussions over whether to consider other candidates. "At this moment, State of Law does not have a candidate other than Nouri al-Maliki and we hope to finalize this decision soon," said Khaled al-Assadi, the lawmaker, who is close to Mr. Maliki. Mr. Assadi said he wasn't aware of any letter from Ayatollah Sistani sent to Mr. Maliki. He lamented any regional interference in Iraq's political process, from Iran and other countries. "What matters to us as Iraqis is to sort out a situation that works for us," he said. Regional and Western powers hope that a more conciliatory government in Baghdad would hold Iraq together and push back the threat from Sunni radical militants. Many former supporters of Mr. Maliki, including the Obama administration, say that is no longer possible under his leadership. Influential Sunni factions now supporting the militant group, which calls itself Islamic State, say they would turn against the insurgency if Mr. Maliki steps aside and Sunnis are reintegrated into Iraq's political order. It is still possible Mr. Maliki will succeed in his bid for a third term. Mr. Maliki's party won the most parliamentary seats in the April elections. The Iraqi leader may seek to portray himself as a casualty of the Shiite religious establishment and focus on rallying support from other factions, including Sunni Arabs and Kurds, and secular factions who oppose religious interference in the political sphere, said Izzat Shahbandar, a former lawmaker and aide of the prime minister who has become critical of him. He will also play for time. "He stays stubborn until the last minute," said Mr. Shahbandar, a Shiite. "This strategy has worked for him in the past. You hold out until the end, and by then the alternatives have all knocked each other over." For now, he said, Mr. Maliki is "living on extra time in the absence of a political agreement." Iran's leadership has been divided on whether to continue to support Mr. Maliki as the Sunni insurgent threat has spread, Western and Arab officials have said, with some officials indicating they would support an alternative Shiite candidate rather than risk the region's descent into wide sectarian warfare. Iraqi and Western officials say Iran will seek a candidate with whom Tehran can cultivate close relations. By custom, a Shiite holds the role of prime minister, a Kurd is president and a Sunni is parliamentary speaker. The Iranian delegation that visited last week was head by Ali Shawkhani, secretary of the powerful Supreme National Security Council, Iraqi officials said. It included intelligence, security, foreign affairs, and Revolutionary Guards representatives. —Ali A.

    Source: Barzani threatened to stop dealing with the next president if it did not receive the consent 7/23/2014 0:00 Kurdish parties calling for the National Federation to nominate a single candidate Erbil: Shirzad Shaikhani prevailing atmosphere of Altotraly Kurdistan region because of differences between various limbs political about Kurdish candidate for the presidency of the Republic, as it threatened regional president Massoud Barzani to stop dealing with the next president, if not received his approval, "because he wants to that accounts for only the decision to nominate a candidate for the presidency, while the divided leadership of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, led by Jalal Talabani to the two blocks because of disagreement over the choice of a single candidate for the presidency. has revealed Kurdish source in the Iraqi Council of Representatives, the "morning" who asked not to be named for "the President of the Region Massoud Barzani threatened to stop dealing with the next president, if not received his approval. " said the source, who confirmed the sensitivity of the subject, "that Barzani wants to account alone, the decision to nominate a presidential candidate so illusion that he is chosen for the post, after the failure of his attempt to compel Kurdish political blocs to a vote inside the Parliament of Kurdistan which party occupies the majority of the presidential candidate, began to threaten the National Federation not to deal with its candidate for the presidential post if not his candidacy with his consent. " the source added that "Barzani asked the leadership of the National Union to have a single candidate, and that this candidate is acceptable by all Kurdish groups, and if won any candidate outside the compatibility of the Kurdish and the voice of other members of the Arabs, it will not deal with him as president. " and on the latest developments related to this file, expressed Kurdish source for his belief that he will postpone a decision to elect the country's president until after the Next Day holiday, as the issue needs to be further consultations and consensus on a single candidate for the post. The source pointed out that "the Kurdish groups House of Representatives has not received yet any guidance from the leaders of their parties to vote for any of the candidates, and it seems that the subject would be delayed several more days to achieve a political consensus." In spite of the progress of some prominent Sunni and Shia to fill the presidential post , but the signals received from the political blocs to confirm that the job will be assigned the current session is also a candidate, a Kurd, but the Kurdish parties have not agreed yet on a candidate who would present the Kurdish blocs for a vote in the Iraqi parliament session today. and hold Multi filtration is the failure of the leadership of the National Union of naming a single candidate to fill the position as usual during the previous two sessions, but this time the absence of voice Talabani within the leadership of the Union, split the command into two first led by the wife of President Talabani Hero Ibrahim Ahmed, member of the Political Bureau made ​​two candidates are nominated are Dr. Fuad Masum, a member of the political bureau of the former and Necmettin cream governor of Kirkuk, the current politburo member of the Patriotic Union to compete with the candidate majority bloc, Dr. Barham Salih. , and this is the first time that divided the leadership of the National Union for naming a candidate for the positions of the sovereign state, and with the multitude of competitors is impossible for the Kurdish blocs in the Iraqi parliament to agree on vote for a particular candidate, so I started the main parties of the five movements since the day before yesterday to convince the leadership of the National Union of sufficient candidate Wahid is agreed upon by the Kurdish bloc to vote for him, for fear that the lost position of the Kurds, especially with the presence of many of the other candidates from the Sunni and Shiite Arabs. She parties concerned of contention numbers of candidates and the impossibility of ensuring the necessary votes to one of them, so I called these parties union leadership to nominate one candidate from among all of Dr. Barham Salih and Fuad Masum, the two candidates Alsman by the political bureau in addition to Najm al-Din Karim, who did not withdraw his candidacy for the position So far, what made ​​the three candidates for the position of National Union. Meanwhile, voices were raised by the parliamentary blocs to reconsider this matter and rapid intervention in order to resolve the issue of the candidate for the presidency of Iraq. I have asked the block Kurdistan Democratic Party in the Parliament of Kurdistan "that presents candidates to parliament to be voted on around them and the nomination of the winner of a majority candidate Kurdistan for the position," but the mass of the Patriotic Union believes that this action is illegal and glory, because if it were so, was supposed to introduce the subject of the nomination of Deputy Iraqi Parliament Speaker who was elected his Aram Sheikh Mohammed of mass Altgieraly Kurdistan Parliament before named as a candidate for the Kurds, must also show the incumbent Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister next to the Kurdistan Parliament, and this is illegal, because the sovereign positions in Baghdad will be resolved by political among all Parties.

Taha said for "tomorrow's Press," that "according to information available to us there are more than 50 candidates applied for the presidency of the parliament to nominate themselves for the position of President of the Republic and this is reason to have a long discussion about them and do not believe that resolved in a single session," noting that "the objection will there will be a number of candidates but the filtering mechanism among themselves.
