Baghdad / News

Iraq's top Shi'ite cleric, Ali al-Sistani, warned on Friday against any intervention by "regional or international parties by imposing his opinion on the protests," which entered its second month and demanding the overthrow of the regime, despite the promises of political leaders to reform.

Protests since the beginning of October have continued in Baghdad and scattered cities in the center and south of the country, despite heavy security measures that have left more than 250 people dead since 25 October.

Power paralysis

As the country's political leaders continue to face paralysis in some parts of the country, promises of reforms, including early elections, protesters insist on their demand for "the overthrow of the entire political system," which is divided between pro-Iranian and US factions.

"No one represents the people, neither Iran, nor the parties, nor the clerics. We want our country," said protester Ali Ghazi, 55, speaking from the symbolic Tahrir Square.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators rallied on Friday in the symbolic Tahrir Square in central Baghdad, shouting slogans against the political class ruling the country.

"The biggest challenge facing Iraqi politicians now is the protesters' calls for the resignation of the regime," said Iraq analyst Feinar Haddad.

"It seems that politicians didn't realize it and are still using positions to score points against each other," the analyst said.


FEATURES OF CHANGE Tuesday, when prominent Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, one of the most prominent pro-Iranian PMU leaders, announced their readiness to "work together" for the country's good.

Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, who took office a year ago, proposed to resign in the event of political blocs agree on a new prime minister.

A government official, who declined to be identified, said al-Amiri "achieved a 180 degree turn."

Following Amri's announcement, the House of Representatives repeatedly invited the prime minister to attend, but the latter did not meet those calls. A new session of the council is scheduled for Saturday.

Sistani said in his sermon Friday, followed by his representative, Mr. Ahmed Al-Safi in Karbala, that the change "entrusted to the choice of the Iraqi people, and not to any person, group or party with a certain direction, or any regional or international party to confiscate the will of the Iraqis and impose their opinion on them." .

Wave of demonstrations

On Thursday night shortly after a speech by President Barham Saleh, in which he proposed early elections, the Hashd organized a car demonstration in the streets of Baghdad, carrying white flags, making protesters fear the start of a movement opposing them.

Before the renewed protests on the evening of October 24, after a wave of 1-6, Sadr's supporters promised to "protect" the protesters and show their presence in different parts of Baghdad.

Sistani called on Friday not to include combat forces in any of its addresses against demonstrators, and not to allow the country to slip into internal fighting, in a country that has been under pressure from its rival allies Iran and the United States for 16 years.

Meanwhile, protests continued in Tahrir Square despite speeches and promises made by politicians.

"All of you are thieves. What have you done since 2003?" Said protester Ali Ghazi, referring to the Iraqi political class, which has been rejected by the people since October 1.

"The promises of new election laws and a constitutional reform committee are not listened to by the demonstrators," Haddad said.
