The idea of giving the position of speaker of parliament to the Iraqiya bloc can only be described as a clearly cunning plan by the State of Law coalition that is led by Nouri al-Maliki, for this idea would see the strengthening of the concept of sectarian quotas and more.
According to the State of Law coalition's Hassan al-Saneid – who is close to al-Maliki – the coalition's position is that the presidency of Iraq should be allocated to the Kurds, whilst the position of speaker of parliament and president of the National Security Council should be allocated to the Iraqiya bloc. This means that the State of Law coalition wants to implement several points, each no less dangerous than the last.
The first point is that ensuring the allocation of the presidency for the Kurds, the position of prime minister for the Shiites, and the position of parliamentary speaker for the Sunnis is something that would strengthen the concept of sectarian quotas in Iraq forever. However the Iraqi constitution clearly states that every Iraqi citizen has the right to stand for the premiership, therefore the party that won the elections should be the one to form a government and nominate a prime minister; and this applies to the Iraqiya bloc with regards to its achievements at the last elections.
