Allawi underscores Iranian regime meddling in Iraq

Former Iraqi Prime Minister and leader of the al-Iraqiya bloc has said, “The Iranian regime is an obstacle to accomplishing our electoral rights. But, al-Iraqiya is determined to participate in Iraqi political decision making through the National Council of Strategic Policies, which has clear executive and legislative powers.”

Dr. Allawi added, “When we saw that strong obstacles have been created by some neighbors and especially Iraq, we decided to retreat from our election rights on account of respect for the Iraqi people, but on the condition of participating in political decision making.”

“This participation will be through the council because this council. It has not been created yet and there are only agreements around its name and powers.”

“This council will not be a rival of the government or Parliament, but it will rather complement them.”
