Iraqis Must 'Take to the Streets' to Demand a Presidential System

 

"Will this new Council of Representatives convene and agree to amend the Constitution and adopt a presidential system, where after an election, a new president enters office a few days later, giving Iraq a strong leader capable of taking command of a nation on the brink of a volcanic eruption? Of course not."

Iraq - Sotal Iraq - Original Article (Arabic)

The elections are over, the results are out, and days, weeks and months have gone by with no solution in sight to the problem of forming a government. Even if a government is formed, under current conditions it will be a weak one, controlled and manipulated by forces both foreign and domestic. That's true for all of the world's coalition governments, but imagine the situation in Iraq, where every party and group is battling to bring each other down, and the Council of Representatives is a perfect example. Will that body be able to resolve this condition? Surely not. Because the legislature is the problem. Can the Council of Representatives adopt a more patriotic attitude and get to the root of the problem, or are special interests the foundation and national interests a distant concern?

Will this new Council of Representatives convene and agree to amend the Constitution and adopt a presidential system where after an election, a new president enters office a few days later, giving Iraq a strong leader capable of taking command of a nation on the brink of a volcanic eruption? With U.S. forces pulling out; forces of terror and political forces in and out of government waiting to pounce on a our stricken population; and regional powers and neighboring countries waiting for the chance to take what they can, can the Council be forced to act?

We repeat: can the Council of Representatives bring itself to truly represent the interests of the people and take this decision? Of course not, because the party blocs in the Council have demands that can only be met through compromise and the provision of conditions that none find acceptable. Others want to turn their religious sect into a ruling minority and bring us back to the days of dictatorship. Still others want the religious parties to retain control even though the facts show that theyre incapable of government administration. Finally, other public figures benefit from the gridlock because it gets them on TV screens, which is ultimately what they're after.

So what's the solution? The solution is among the segments of the population who love this country, which must take to the streets to force the Council of Representatives to drop its despicable separatist and sectarian tendencies. Then we should take a step back and allow the political beneficiaries of this movement to lead the country away from collapse and the trend toward a catastrophic civil war.
