Parliament session adjourned till next Tuesday. Make no mistake – this was not for lack of “compromise” – everyone was there. They had their candidates in hand. This was about Maliki and the SLC core leadership not willing to let Maliki go as the PM. This is about political maneuvering to get rid of him. Period. Better for us to wait a bit than be stuck with Maliki again.
We did see a lot of progress on the candidates - except the one that matters the most.
The other spots are settled. (I think...) They are working on a way to ditch Maliki.
