Despite the PM Adel Abdul Mahdi promising jobs to angry crowds in the ministry, civil Iraqi population has not stopped blocking the bridges and disrupting the functioning of government offices in Baghdad.
The capital of Iraq continues to suffer from paralysis due to the crowd taking to streets in retaliation of corruption and economic slowdown, leading to the young population rendered without proper jobs.
The crowds that have condemned Iran’s interference in its internal political matters, is forcefully demanding the ousting of the government, to be followed by dismissal of Mahdi.
There are ‘rightful’ accusations against him and his allies authorizing the use of lethal force in an attempt to suppress these protests when they began last month, leaving more than 300 people dead and 12,000 injured.
It has been confirmed that snipers and military force were provided by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
In this instance, the visit by the General and Commander Qasem Soleimani has been severely criticized by one and all in Iraq and has been termed as direct interference in the matters of the state.
Mahdi has been currying favor from Iran and running his show with his corrupt set of government officers.
Change of guard is now inevitable. A legal and official request to question the prime minister has been made by Al-Nassir bloc and others as well.
This action has already received support from the majority of the parliamentary blocs. Undeniably, there is no gap between what the common wants and initiatives being taken by other political forces within Iraq.
According to Al-Sudani, a prominent Shiite politician and former minister, “the challenge lies in who is going to negotiate on behalf of the people.
There is no leadership to be seen and there is an urgent need for someone to hold the banner high and negotiate.”
On the flip side, Mahdi’s other actions of speedy redressal for resolution of financial and administrative corruption cases involving politicians and officials aren’t yielding him any positive outcomes.
