2:03 am
are very defiant and determined and standing his ground. he put to rest. all speculations, ever ongoing. here, over the past few days that there was a lot of behind the scenes meetings taking place and that eventually he would join a dialogue process. but certainly that is not going to happen. as he said, what is critical now is whether or not the various other factions within the government will accept his call. and there is no really functioning government at the moment after the elections that were held last october. since will cut off souther instructed his m p, 's 73 of them to withdraw in june. the country has been in limbo. so the question now is whether the other side will accept the fact that there should be another election health. the next process that will come is the speaker of harlem. it would have to basically dissolve parliament and then they will have to announce new election. it is unclear what the other side that will be involved in this will have
2:04 am

2:05 am
a surprise as your report or reported instructor, the $73.00 members of his parliamentary party to withdraw and they are all complied. they apparently thought that, but for some sort of deadlocks, in fact, under the rocky electoral system, whoever came in 2nd for those states was elevated, which is to say, it gave the other parliamentary parties. actually he did them a favor. so now he's trying to gain the system and it seems that the only thing he can think of us to call for new elections, which actually is not unreasonable 10 months after the elections in october. we still don't have government. and the democracy is, might well go to early elections, but of course the parliament would have to approve the dissolution of itself in order for us to go to new elections. what are the chances?
2:06 am
do you think of that actually happening? not out of the question, not impossible, but i think it's when one of the flaws of the iraqi constitution is that the president, for instance, does not have the authority to dissolve parliament parliament or actually have to vote to dissolve itself. and you know, it happened before we had the early elections in october of 2021. that parliament prior fall a month. it does all of itself. but only after the political leaders thought they had sufficiently, sort of play with a new electoral laws to give themselves a leg up somewhere, right? some are wrong, but it's, it's hard to see parliament actually voting to dissolve itself anytime soon. but it's certainly possible. okay, well, if he's rejecting any dialogue,
2:07 am
then how do you see this being resolved? is there any possibility of negotiations at this point? well, keep in mind those parliamentarians resign. he has no seats, and part of those seats have been filled. they are radically, if you could get the demonstrators out of the parliament building or a parliament met somewhere else. it could be like the government. they seem to be taking matters somebody out of order ordinarily a constitution, things to suggest or that the president be designated and voted on 1st the office of speaker, and then the prime minister. but there is a candidate who radically kept the confidence of parliament, at least as a prime minister designate to form a new cabinet in bath monster,
2:08 am
the salo dealt himself out of parliament by through the resignation. so on the other hand, i would not be the 1st time that matter has reversed itself as a career of that since 2003. so it's entirely possible that bunker standing what he says. now, he may enter into negotiations. he is somewhat vote taught it in his speech, satta said he will not accept bloodshed, but reform cannot be achieved without sacrifice. so does that indicate that the protest codes may be potentially turned violent? well, unfortunately in iraq that is always possible. the remarkable thing is that as discourse is as if he has been outside the political process, he has been in the political process since 2005 at the very least. and he has himself engaged in violence. he has a militia that anger has engaged in violence from time to time, including,
2:09 am
of course, during the 2000 circuit, 2006 civil war. and so, but his discourse of reform, he's speaking as if he's some outsider, one demanding reform. he has been, pardon, are so all the political class and iraqi has had parliamentarians since the, at the very least, the 1st parliament elected under the constitution. i'm an he is a, i suppose, in the eyes of many a part of the political elites. he is railing against, but he has the populace message and his resume within the circles in which he is already popular. a fight, a less trip audi. thank you so much for your time and your insight. it's my pleasure. thank you. were you, as president joe biden has signed a new executive order aimed at making it easier for women to travel between states to get an abortion? it's a sick and executive order on abortion,
