The Nation | Today, Tuesday, Iraqi government spokesman Ahmad Mulla Talal issued a call to the demonstrators protesting the political and economic conditions in Iraq to participate politically in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
Ahmed Mulla Talal said in the weekly press conference of the Council of Ministers that: The demonstrators have a great opportunity to organize themselves politically and participate in the early elections, which are scheduled to be held on June 6, according to what Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi had previously identified.
Although the election law, on which voting is expected to be completed, was the most prominent of the protesters' demands, who came out a year ago calling for the elimination of corruption, but they believe that the law in its current form does not fulfill their demands to remove old political faces from the arena and to allow independent political participation. Also, there are still differences between the political blocs on the distribution of electoral districts in Kirkuk and Nineveh.
Talal considered that "the government succeeded in protecting the demonstrators," indicating: "Public opinion has come to distinguish between the government's performance and its concern for the demonstrators and the performance of previous governments."
The demonstrations that began during the term of former Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi fell about 600 dead and thousands of wounded, despite the decline in attacks on demonstrators, during the era of Al-Kazemi, but they did not end, but rather developed into the assassination of prominent political activists at the hands of armed militias.
The demonstrators in Iraq, who went out on Sunday in mass demonstrations at the Liberation Hour in the capital, Baghdad, on the first anniversary of the October demonstrations, expressed their annoyance with Al-Kazemi for not holding any of the protesters ’killers accountable, whether from the security leaders or armed militias.
A cabinet spokesman added, commenting on the friction that occurred between the demonstrators and the security forces: Tahrir Square is a place to express opinion and not to attack the security forces, and there will be no security measure to evacuate Tahrir Square. He added, Al-Kazemi is the price of the spirituality that the youth enjoyed during the demonstrations, noting: The Cabinet approved the referral of a draft amendment to the Martyrs Foundation Law to include victims of the demonstrations.
On Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi's European tour, Mulla Talal said: Al-Kazemi briefed the Council of Ministers on the results of his European tour, and that the three countries, France, Germany and Britain, showed their support and support for Iraq.
Regarding salaries, he explained: There is no intention to print a currency to fill the salary deficit, and that maintaining the exchange rate is the most important task of monetary policy, and the government has other solutions in the event that the deficit financing law is not passed.
Mulla Talal declared: The Council of Ministers authorized the Minister of Water Resources to sign a protocol for cooperation in managing the Tigris water between Iraq and Turkey.
The spokesman indicated that the Council of Ministers discussed the Ministry of Health's preparations to confront the high number of Corona cases.
Regarding the displaced, he said: Al-Kazemi emphasized that the issue of the displaced is a priority for the government.
