Kurdish vulnerability in Baghdad can be countered by KDP-PUK unity

I want to share with you my experiences from Baghdad, where I spent three days meeting public figures and lawmakers with a Rudaw team. 
 
They told me that the Kurdistan Coalition at Iraqi parliament only exists as far as the sign hanging on the part of the building where the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) lawmakers stay. Kurdish blocs do not have coordination or a unified position, but this does not mean that there is animosity between them. Rather, there is a sort of uncertainty among them.

They told me that there are several sensitive and sometimes decisive issues which require us to work together as a Kurdistani team in Baghdad, against two big Sunni and Shiite contingents. An ununified Kurdish position will hinder our ability to counter threats to our share of the 2020 budget.

Iraqi finance minister Fuad Hussein, a Kurd, was appointed by KDP leader Masoud Barzani. Kurdish and Arab lawmakers as well as the parliament presidency complain about his attitudes and behavior. One positive thing I heard about him was that he has said he would not do anything illegal for anyone. Rejecting and eradicating illegality is a virtue. 

However, what has mainly angered parliamentarians is his rejection of requests for answers. This has been the pretext for which lawmakers have twice summoned him to parliament - but the parliament presidency have taken this pretext out of the meeting agendas. If summoned, he could be probed, and a call for no-confidence vote could be initiated. It would be a low point in Kurdish history to have the tenure of two Kurdish finance ministers ending on a no-confidence vote in Iraq (the first one being Hoshyar Zebari).
 
In formal meetings, Baghdad has said that Kurdistan Region’s political future is oriented towards Baghdad. They have sensed that Erbil-Baghdad relations are improving, and that Erbil wants to have as few issues possible with Baghdad.
 
The hot topic in Baghdad is the handover of 250,000 barrels of oil per day to Iraq, as accepted by Kurdistan Region and stipulated in 2019 budget law - but the problem is that there could be demands for the increase of this amount.
 
A circulating rumor is that some Kurdish lawmakers once met with Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi and talked about this amount of oil. The Iraqi Oil Minister then joined the discussion, saying that 250,000 bpd is not enough and that Kurdistan Region should hand over more of the 650,000 bpd it produces. However, Abdul-Mahdi replied that the budget law stipulates that the Kurdistan Region should be allowed to pay its debts to companies, something it may be incapable of doing if it hands over more than 250,000 bpd.
 
Some people are not tolerating the decision and have already begun efforts to increase the 250,000 bpd, lobbying for its increase in 2020 budget law. Additionally, Abdul-Mahdi’s lenience and compromise towards Kurds may end in the face of pressure from other parties. 
 
Baghdad is not like Erbil because partisan agreements are not directly implemented and require lawmaker approval. There, agreements are turned into bills and taken to the parliament, but MPs may not do what their political parties tell them to do. When one lobbies with or tries to convince political leaders of parties to vote for a bill, they have to do the same with parliament and lawmakers. 
 
There is a great vulnerabilty in Baghdad for Kurds, who do not have an umbrella to gather under. PUK leader Jalal Talabani used to be in Baghdad as the President of Iraq. Everyone depended on him. He also had direct contact with Masoud Barzani, then President of Kurdistan Region. Sometimes, he made decisions on behalf of Barzani as his representative in Baghdad. However, now Kurds do not know who to deal with. 
 
Formal communication should be in place between the President of Iraq and President of Kurdistan - currently, between Barham Salih and Nechirvan Barzani. They can fully coordinate and agree on treating Salih as Nechirvan Barzani’s representative in Baghdad. Additionally, Masoud Barzani should also support such an agreement. I believe this arrangement will be approved of by other parties too.

He pointed out that "a number of questions are being asked about the ruling of the Federal Supreme Court on this article and the first timing of the issuance of this ruling, and why the judicial decision coincided with the political movement between the federal government and the Kurdistan region."

Al-Sharif said, "The court did not issue its verdict on its own, but this came upon an explanatory request received from the House of Representatives dated (15/7/2019), and therefore became necessary for the judiciary to decide." 

He continued, "The timing must be asked by the interpreter, although the right of access to justice is guaranteed to everyone in accordance with Article (19 / III) of the Constitution, and at any time." 

He added, "The court issued its interpretative judgment a few days after receiving the request after it completed its study of all formal and substantive aspects with a view to issuing the verdict in it, on (28/7/2019)." 

He stressed that "when the court issued the verdict was in accordance with Article (92 / second) of the Constitution, in accordance with its interpretative jurisdiction, which ruled in many judgments, including on (the age of the electoral cycle and the largest parliamentary bloc and the opposition bloc and the unity of Iraq and territorial integrity)." .

The Al - Sharif, The interpreter of the request, the Chamber of Deputies, confined his request to know whether this article is still in force or not ?, and the court according to legal contexts is obliged to answer that question whenever the correct formal and objective conditions for the request for interpretation exist and otherwise it will place itself before the responsibility. to refrain from the realization of the right)). " 

He cited Al - Sharif, the" pretext cited by the objectors in criticism for How the Federal Supreme Court is having a time limit in Article 140 of the Constitution, is (31/12/2007) to implement a maximum. " 

And added that"

"

He continued, "Article 142, which is also included in the transitional provisions and provides for time limits for amendments, but the court said in its interpretative ruling that that article is still valid as well."

He added, "The same position with regard to Article (137) of the Constitution, which talked about the formation of the Council of the Union (the second wing of the legislative authority), after the end of the first electoral cycle for the years (2006-2010), but the Federal Supreme Court ruled in many of its judgments This council, even though we are in the fourth electoral cycle now. " 

"The summary of the above shows us that exceeding the constitutional deadlines is not intended to drop its articles because this requires an amendment in accordance with the mechanisms set forth in the Constitution itself, but to determine the responsibility of the body that is responsible for implementing them and if they exceed them are held accountable in accordance with the constitutional contexts of the concerned authorities 29 / p

August 14, 2019

BAGHDAD — Meetings last month between representatives of Iraq's federal government in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Erbil failed to produce any clear resolutions of their ongoing differences.

A high-level delegation from the Baghdad government visited Erbil on July 25 for talks with the newly elected government there. Discussions focused on KRG oil exports, its share of the federal budget and control of disputed, oil-rich Kirkuk. The Baghdad representatives included Oil Minister Thamer Ghadhban and Finance Minister Fouad Hussein, national security adviser Faleh al-Fayadh and the director of the prime minister's office, Mohammed al-Hashemi.

Masrour Barzani had begun his tenure as KRG prime minister by leading a senior Kurdish delegation on a visit to Baghdad on July 16, less than a week after the KRG Cabinet received a parliamentary vote of confidence. Barzani met with President Barham Salih and various ministers and parliament deputies to discuss various potential solutions to their disagreements that would satisfy all sides, especially with regard to the KRG’s inability to fulfill its oil quota under the current year’s budget. The KRG is obliged to provide 250,000 barrels a day to the federal government in return for Baghdad funding KRG employee salaries.

“The federal government praises the spirit of cooperation and understanding with the KRG and local governments to promote integration and solve all problems for the benefit of all Iraqis in line with the Constitution and the unity of our people and our country,” Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said in a statement after meeting with Barzani.



As with KRG President Nechirvan Barzani’s visit to Baghdad in June, the July visits did not yield tangible results. Still, the meetings reflect the Kurds' desire to settle their situation with the central government after the tensions and conflict generated by the 2017 independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan.
The visits also revealed the difficulties Abdul Mahdi, known for his good relations with the Kurds, is having in implementing decisions that would be favorable for the KRG due to the conflicting interests of the political blocs in his government. For example, the Iran-backed Fatah bloc refuses to oust the Iran-friendly Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) from the city of Kirkuk, as the KRG desires, so they can be replaced with Kurdish peshmerga. Other blocs from the central and southern provinces object to releasing the KRG from its oil obligations under the federal budget law. They believe this would be unfair to other oil-producing provinces, such as Basra and Maysan, since the Kurds do not share their oil or oil revenues with the rest of the country. Baghdad capitulating on the oil-for-salaries arrangement would lead to some parties raising objections and complicating passage of the next budget law.
The most important outcome of the meetings between Baghdad and Erbil was the announcement of upcoming technical dialogue sessions, at the level of specialized committees, aimed at continuing to try to resolve their differences on the oil exports, the budget and Kirkuk. Haneen al-Qaddu, a member of parliament from Fatah, told Al-Monitor that he does not expect the technical committees to suggest a solution that circumvents the oil-for-salaries structure. He asserted that next year's budget will not include federal payments to the KRG unless Erbil settles its oil dues for 2019.
Parliament member Mahdi Abdul Karim from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) asserted that resolving this particular issue requires examining the relationship between Baghdad and Erbil for the past decade and considering why, in his and some others' view, the KRG had begun exporting oil directly, without coordinating with the federal government, a move that greatly angered Baghdad.
“The KRG did not get its due share of the budget over the past years, so it had to search for other sources of funding,” Abdul Karim argued, seeming to absolve the KRG and stressing the need to promulgate the oil and gas law based on the Iraqi Constitution to avoid controversy over oil extraction and export in the productive provinces. 
Al-Monitor learned from a source familiar with Barzani’s talks in Baghdad that the topic of filling the post of Kirkuk governor was raised in talks. The office has been headed by a caretaker since 2017, when in the aftermath of the independence referendum, Baghdad dispatched the military to seize Kirkuk and remove the separatist governor.
“KDP leader Massoud Barzani [Masrour's father] had proposed appointing a governor in an agreement between Baghdad and Erbil to resolve the dispute between the constituent blocs of the Kirkuk Provincial Council,” the source told Al-Monitor. In the meantime, the Kurdish blocs in the Kurdistan parliament agreed to name Tayeb Jabbar to the post on July 11, as part of a deal to form the KRG Cabinet, subject to the approval of the Arab and Kurdish blocs in Kirkuk province. The other blocs rejected Jabbar and said the Kurdish blocs’ agreement “reflected a policy of hegemony and unilateral decision making.”
According to the source, the parties Barzani met with in Baghdad promised to discuss the nomination of a new Kirkuk governor with the Turkmen and Arab blocs and parties in the province. The blocs, however, are convinced that the discussions will renew tensions in the disputed area and that the best option is to wait for local elections, scheduled for early next year. Meanwhile, Barzani wants to appoint a Kurd close to his party to lead administer Kirkuk.
Erbil has a new trump card that it could probably use in the negotiations on oil and Kirkuk: special grades positions, estimated at 5,000 jobs in the Iraqi state. It is rumored that discussions are being held among the federal parliament blocs to allocate certain positions according to a quota system. According to leaks, Kurdish blocs wan to appoint the chief of staff of the Iraqi army, but might compromise on some other positions in return for oil-related exemptions or Kurdish influence in Kirkuk.
If the crisis between Baghdad and Erbil surges after the 2019 budget law is approved, it will most likely lead the Kurds to withdraw their support for Abdul Mahdi. Meanwhile, the prime minister’s government faces parliamentary opposition and ongoing popular protests that are expected to broaden in light of its continuing failures in the areas of security, reconstruction and water and electric services.
