The Iraqi political scene is going through a state of confusion, one of the main causes of which was the resignation of the government headed by Adel Abdul Mahdi more than a month ago, and its transformation into a caretaker government, against the backdrop of popular demonstrations calling for political and economic reforms and amendment of the constitution.
This has made it difficult to pass the basic laws the country needs, to deal with thorny issues, and to take decisions in which a full-fledged government needs to be exercised, similar to the recent parliament’s decision to remove foreign forces.
Another dilemma facing the government of Abdul-Mahdi, which is the approval of the 2020 budget, it did not submit to Parliament after it became a caretaker government, in addition to not being able to implement external contracts related to the implementation of large projects that had been agreed upon previously, which put the country in front of a deadlock that could cause A real economic crisis, especially if the situation remains the same for a long time.
One of the most complex files - which the country faces from within - is the political and economic relationship with the Kurdistan region.
The caretaker government has been trying to tackle dangerous and thorny files, but the Iraqi street has been waiting for three months for the formation of a new government with full powers that meets all demands.
