The Prime Minister, Haider Abadi, on Saturday, that the next four years will witness a dramatic transformation of Iraq, if formed the appropriate government, which he said he is willing to cooperate with the various political blocs to form, and revealed his vision for the future in the case His second term.
"On May 12, more than 10 million Iraqi citizens voted freely in the fourth parliamentary election since 2003, which is rare in the Middle East and a source of pride for Iraqis," Abbadi said in an article in The Washington Post.
"Although voter turnout was less than expected, voters voted for cross-sectarian lists, rather than the ethnic or sectarian groups that dominated the previous elections," he said.
"I myself participated in all 18 provinces, and our coalition won seats in 14 of them , Which no other list has been able to achieve.
Sunny: Hang in there everybody. Frank26: "MY HEART IS CELEBRATING.....YOU WILL TOO SOON...."
CharlieOK: OK; Sadr said he was giving A his votes. The understanding is allegedly that A has to agree to the MR. However; does A coming in a ridiculous third place position place S plus A in a non-control position?
Briona: Abadi will continue to be the Prime Minister and should function as he did prior to the election, but I think, now Iraq is better off with Iran's influence diminished.
Briona: CharlieOK, that is the way Iraqs parliament works. Remember when Maliki became Prime Minister, even though he did not win the election…. The winner makes the decision, and he felt Abadi was the better man to pick as PM.
Briona: I believe Sadr's winning is actually a better outcome for Iraq, as he will keep pressure on Abadi, that he didn't have before, to get the monetary reform done, to get control of corruption, and keep Iran's influence to a minimum.

Sunny: Frank26 CC Update, May 18, 2018 "Elections – It’s a hiccup”
NOTES: Frank26 CC, May 18, 2018 "Elections – It’s a hiccup”
Frank26 - All is in his opinion . . .
Iraq is up in arms right now. Maliki’s party is contesting the election. A lot of jockeying for power right now in Iraq.
The election is on one road and the RI is on another. Our emotions want . . . to cause them to collide.
Maliki was trying to form a bloc majority to put in whoever he wants. That’s a dictatorship, but the laws of Iraq and the Constitution are not in favor of Maliki nor the Dahl party, nor those who are complaining.
