Allawi's bloc wins most Iraq seats

Iraqiya won 91 seats while al-Maliki's State of Law won 89.

"The secularist Iraqiya coalition led by Iyad Allawi, the former premier, won the most seats in Iraq's March 7 parliamentary election, two more than incumbent Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's bloc."

  2. I hope this is true.


    Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor of al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper, told Al Jazeera that the election had shown changes in the country's political makeup: "The Sunnis voted for Allawi who is a Shia. They want a real Iraqi identity. They want to put an end to the Iranian influence which is spreading in the country.
    "Also they want a secular government, they are fed up of this sectarianism. They want to have an Iraq they aspire to, to have stability, democracy, human rights, equality. And they don’t want those religious people at the top of their authority."

    Allawi has also the support of America and he has visited saudi arabia , and had its support and apparently , saudi has been more than generous buying votes here and there even outside sunni areas .

  4. Fatimah, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, all the Sunni Arab dictators are backing Allawi. Almost all Iraqi Sunni Arabs voters voted for Allawi. The Baa3thists backed Allawi.

    Amazingly, many Shiites and Kurds also backed Allawi; perhaps hoping Allawi can end the proxy war between Iraq and all the Sunni Arab dictatorships.

    2003-2007, Iraq fought a war with all its Sunni Arab neighbors; who were backing the resistance or Sunni Arab militias against the sole legitimate legal elected Iraqi Government, its Iraqi Army and Iraqi Police, Iranian backed Shiite militias, and MNF-I.

    Obama has been trying to make friends with Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Egypt (the Messiah went to Cairo), Jordan, Libya, Algeria, and Syria. It matches that the Chosen One, Obama, would accede to their demands that their own candidate, Alllawi, becomes PM of Iraq.

    However, Fatimah, Allawi is a complex man. Rumor has it that Allawi has won the backing of Khamenei and the IRGC Kuds force to become PM this year.

    This wouldn't be the first time Allawi won Iran over.

    In June, 2004, Allawi became PM of Iraq when Allawi won the support of Khamenei, the Najaf Marjeya, the Arab League, Brahimi, and the UN.

    At that time Dawa and SCIRI could have had the top job; but they were too busy fighting each other. So both agreed to back Allawi; as did Iran.

    However, after becoming PM of Iraq in June, 2004, Allawi got himself and Iraq into a fight with Iran.

    Which makes it all the more remarkable that Khamenei and the IRGC Kuds force are indicating that they back Allawi now.

    Allawi is a remarkably talented politicians. Allawi admitted to extracting support from at least 15 countries while leading a large part of the Iraqi resistance during the great 1980-2003 Iraqi civil war. Remarkably, many of the countries backing Allawi hated each other; including Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, America, UK.
