    The reality is that there is no strong legitimate government that is leading Iraq towards stability, prosperity, and democracy. Corrupt political parties have a strong influence on the government to achieve personal interests and manipulate the elections.

    All the political parties have stated their concerns that the elections are rigged. Muqtada’s Al-Sadr’s boycott is a clear indication that the government is failing, and the people have lost confidence with their “elected officials”.

    I don't believe that statement for a second. Kazemi is the ONLY decent and ETHICAL POLITICIAN to EVER oversee Iraq's parliamentary process and work diligently to stop corruption.
