NOURNEWS - Iraq is on the verge of holding important and crucial parliamentary elections, which are scheduled to take place on Sunday, October 9th.
According to the constitution, the political system in Iraq is "parliamentary", and the prime minister will be elected as the head of state based on the opinion of the majority faction or, as the Iraqis call it, the "big killer."
The forthcoming elections in Iraq are experiencing certain conditions from the perspective that the new law will be held, and on the other hand, due to some public dissatisfaction, some experts are concerned about the decrease in the turnout in these elections.
However, political groups active in Iraq, while making the space competitive, have tried in various ways to encourage people to participate more.
In this regard, the Iraqi Supreme Authority, while emphasizing the lack of support for any candidate or electoral list, has called on the people to participate in the elections consciously.
The office of Ayatollah Seyed Ali Sistani, in a statement addressed to the Iraqi voters on the 7th of October, called on them to take an informed and responsible part in the elections in order to fight corruption and achieve the prosperity of the country.
Simultaneously, with these conditions; Iraqi public opinion has been heavily influenced by the psychological operations of the media and networks aligned with the West.
In this context, months ago, the Western media targeted perceptions of the Iraqi audience, especially through social networks, and a comprehensive effort to influence the election results has been on the agenda of these media.
A review of the developments in Iraq over the past two years clearly shows that the current crises in this country are rooted in the policies and approaches that the Western media is leading people to in the current situation.
It was in the summer of 1998 that the United States, with a deliberate plan, created many problems for the anti-corruption government of Adel Abdul Mahdi and tried to create a difficult psychological atmosphere by abusing the poor living conditions and protesting the rights of the Iraqi people. Put in conditions of despair and resignation.
This action continued with the escalation of divisions and divisions in the country and the pessimism of the people towards the official political groups until the resignation of Abdul Mahdi and weeks after that.
After Abdul Mahdi's resignation, Iraq did not have a government for months, and things were being run by the government in act.
Meanwhile, the United States, with its embassy in Baghdad, while activating some suspicious individuals and groups and carrying out terrorist and subversive acts, tried to attribute the shortcomings, which were mainly the result of the US and British interference in Iraq, to its opposition political groups. Give.
This path continued until finally, after the failure of "Adnan al-Zurfi" and "Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi" in forming the cabinet, "Mustafa Al-Kadhimi" with the consensus of Shiite groups and coordination with the Kurds and Sunnis of Iraq, was introduced as the caretaker Prime Minister in April 1999. Parliament received a vote of confidence.
Now but; All estimates show that political groups close to the United States will not be successful in the upcoming elections, and therefore, the Americans, taking into account the unpopularity of their pro-government groups, have taken a dual stance on the authenticity and impact of the upcoming elections in Iraq.
The Representative for the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, who had previously spoken to the White House about the need to create a safe environment for elections, insisted on "transparency" on Tuesday before the official start of the election. Create a kind of suspicion of ill health so that if their goals are not met in the election process, they can exploit it.
Regardless of what the outcome of the next elections will be and which of the two major coalitions "Hakim, Sadr, Al-Abadi, Halabusi and the Kurdistan Democratic Party" or "Fatah, the rule of law, Faleh Fayyaz and Al-Azm" will reach, the majority faction will undoubtedly reach two. The main challenge of this election will be "security" and "health".
To describe precisely; If we take seriously the assumption of "public disapproval of pro-Western currents," these two challenges would be a good excuse for Americans to make it difficult to hold a peaceful, non-violent election.
In this regard; Widespread and covert measures have been taken to destabilize and destabilize Iraq, the most important of which is to activate and exploit terrorist groups, especially ISIS, in this regard.
There are reports of ISIL being equipped with modern American military equipment and weapons in Salahuddin and Kirkuk provinces.
On the other hand, news of cyber-moves by groups backed by Washington and Tel Aviv to influence the electronic vote-counting system shows that the White House is determined to prevent the flow of alignments.
Naturally, in such circumstances, political, religious and ethnic groups, more than ever before, should understand the sensitive situation ahead, focusing on the interests and security of Iraq and not allow insecurity and instability in their country to allow foreign elements and malicious elements to hold elections in appropriate conditions.
