Iraqi premier threatens to resign over lawmaker's "dictator" remark

Dec 20, 2011, 9:02 GMT

Baghdad - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has threatened to resign if lawmakers fail to pass a no-confidence vote against one of his deputies for calling him 'a dictator,' an aide was quoted as saying Tuesday.

Saleh al-Mutlaq had made the comment in an interview with broadcaster CNN last week.

'If the parliament does not pass a no-confidence motion against al-Mutlaq, I will be the one to resign in days,' al-Maliki told members of his State of Law coalition, the aide told the independent daily al-Mada.

The Shiite Muslim premier is seen to be excluding the country's highest Sunni officials, raising speculation that he is seeking to tighten his grip over the country.

Al-Mutlaq is Sunni Muslim, like Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi against whom an arrest warrant was issued on Monday on suspicion of involvement in the assassination of government officials.

Al-Hashimi and members of his security staff are accused of involvement in the November 28 bombing outside parliament, which al-Maliki said had targeted him.

Al-Hashemi and al-Mutlaq are leaders of the Iraqiya bloc, a secular group with strong Sunni support that joined the unity government last year.

Lawmakers are due to return to parliament in early January.



Baghdad: Iraq will submit a request to the House of representatives to withdraw confidence from Maliki

Tuesday, January 20, 1 December 2011 11: 19


Deputy Prime Minister Saleh Al-mutlaq that Iraq would submit a request to the House of representatives to withdraw confidence from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, asking him to step down.

Maliki was sent Saturday to the House of representatives to withdraw confidence from Baghdad after Al-Maliki's recent description as "dictator" is not built and the withdrawal of confidence as a leader in the State of law "glorious Yassin incompetent and competence and integrity"

He said Al-mutlaq, who left Baghdad after a visit to Kurdistan region in connection with the "Radio Sawa" Iraqi list can no longer deal with him.

Al-mutlaq admitted he had already described the Maliki dictator but I realize now that Al-Maliki "dictator and unwise" as saying Radio Sawa, and everyone should be subject to commissions of inquiry until the "corrupt" found the terrorist.

Baghdad warned of the repercussions of the policies of the Government on the situation in the country at the present stage, and expect to see the Iraq mess in the next phase, especially with the US Army's withdrawal from the country.

Baghdad radio said that in Diyala cordoning off of the provincial Council of militia with the help of security forces was an indication of the beginning of the chaos in the country,./ended
