The results of the Iraqi election: no one has exclusive win but one?!
Out of 328 seats they need coalition to form 164 plus one to be able to form a new government. It is therefore going to be somehow difficult negotiation between parties to get the right number. It is necessary the party with large number is the one that enable to do it. The constitution states that the largest group is the one which can be formed after the election results and not the one which gain the largest votes. However the chance is more in favour of the largest one.
The votes were Alkanon coalition (Almaliki) 92; Almowaten 29; Alahrar 28; Motahedon 23; Alwatniyah 21; Alkordistani 19; Democratic Kurdistan 19; Alarabiyah 10; Altaghier 9; Kurdistani Naynawa 6; Fadhielah 6; Islah 6; Diayala 5; Iaytlaf Aliraq 5; Islamy Kurdistan 4; Jamah Islamiyah Kurdistan 3; Naynawa watani 3; wafaa Anbar 3; Nokhab 3; Madani democraty 3; Sharaka watnyia 3; Wahdat ibna Iraq 2; Wafaa Iraqi 2; Kafaat Jamahyer 2; Turkiman Kurkuk 2; Rafidien 2; syriyani ashore 2; badel madni, tathamon, dawla adiela, Khalas, Sadekon, Sabiyaa, yazidiyah, shabaki, Arab kurkuk, Salah aldeen, karamah, Dawah dakhel and warkaa each one got 1 seat.
The main parties stated that they will refuse negotiating with Almalki unless he accept nomination of other members to compete for the first Minister who will do the government. In politics every thing is possible. One more thing is the absence of the president who was severely unwell and for the last year spent time outside Iraq for treatment. It is the president who should call for the formation of the parliament. How this is going to be we have to wait and see in the next few days as there is a time limit for all of that.
In fact the only winner in this election is the Iraqi people who went and voted smoothly and without problems. Now the politicians should respect those who elected them and speed up formation of government away from personal interests by putting differences away for the best of the national interests.
