Weekendavisens Pernille Bramming vil nok gøre et forsøg. Men hun løj da ikke, da hun skrev om "vigtige politiske skridt i hovedstaden". Dog ikke helt, som hun forestillede sig:
Former Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al Jaafari broke off from the Dawa party, the Shiite Prime Minister's party, and announced the formation of his own political bloc, Islah or Reformation Party.Alle mod al-Maliki. Gad vidst, hvordan Bramming får det til at stemme med sin anonyme Basra-borger?
Jaafari is using the unpopularity of Maliki's negotiations for a Status of Forces Agreement with the United States, his alienation of the Sadrist bloc and his inability to bring the Sunnis back into the government to stage his come back.
The change could throw off the balance in the parliament. So far the Dawa party has barely beaten out the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq twice for the Prime Minister's seat. Sadrists will not go to Dawa in the next elections and Jaafari always handled the young Shiite cleric Muqtada al Sadr with care. Sometimes he spoke to him late into the night to calm him down. Maliki has largely ignored the Sadrists who are responsible for getting him enough votes to become head of state.
"Alle mener, det er lykkedes for al-Maliki at samle både de sunni- og shiamuslimske politikere omkring sig, eller i hvert fald de fleste af dem."Bramming skal nok finde på noget.
