MESOP LATEST – Miladinov warning: ISIS cannot be stopped only by two options

30 July 2014 10:00 – SHAFAAQ:COM – Shafaq News / The Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Iraq, Nikolay Mladenov warned leaders of Iraq that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria “ISIS” organization cannot be stopped     unless by accelerating the formation of a technocrats government or a government that does not exclude anyone.

ISIS militants have led the attack last month in which they took over vast areas of the north and west of the country, declared “Islamic Caliphate”, and inaugurated Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as a “successor”.

Iraq’s leaders seek to form an acceptable government to all parties to address the militants who are within 100 km north of Baghdad.

According to the Iraqi constitution, the President assigned to the head of the largest bloc in parliament to form a government within 15 days of the election.

The Iraqi parliament has elected the Kurdish leader , Fuad Masum, as the president of the country on 24 of this July as the members of the parliament must agree on the identity of the largest bloc and the name of the Prime Minister by 13 of August, the date of the next session.

Mladenov said in an interview with the US-funded Radio Sawa that next Iraqi Prime Minister need to try to build agreement among the largest number of members of parliament to vote to get confidence.

He explained in the statements seen by “Shafaq News” that “ there are two ways to do this, one of them is forming a government of technocrats, and there is another way to get a majority based on the representation of the different segments of Iraqi society and I think that this is the key to the future.

It seems a thorny path is in front  of the formation of the next government while Prime Minister , Nuri al-Maliki still want to remain as President of caretaker government for a third term after his state of law coalition won in the election results.

Maliki does not have acceptance of the Sunnis and Kurds, as well as main parties in the Shiite National coalition, as the religious Marjiyaa also hinted to the need to al-Maliki to step down when urged politicians not to cling to positions.
