Samerraei:National Program That Extracts Iraq from Sectarian Voting to National Voting
Iyad Al-Samerraei, Deputy Secretary-General of IIP and Head of the Iraqi Parliament, has expressed his wishes for a coalition that would include forces and large parties of all sects and nationalities for all Iraqi people. He agrees on a joint national program to end the phenomena of ethnic and religious coalition, however he does not think this would be achieved in the next parliamentary elections.
He pointed out that the political scene of the coming coalitions will be different from that of 2005.
Al-Samerraei stressed that the system of sects in the successive government formation and the elections was one reason behind the political instability experienced and there should be a move from sectarianism to national belonging and support of the national project.
