BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: A Free Iraqiya MP accused un-named political components of trying to return US hegemony in Iraq by creating a political crises.
MP Alia Nsaif in a statement today accused un-named political components of agitating artificial internal conflicts in an attempt for the return US forces to the country.
The last US soldier withdrew at the end of last year, according to an agreement signed in 2008.
Iraq has been witnessing a continued political crisis which culminated in some demands to demote Premier Maliki who was charged with "dictatorial" behavior.
Arbil-Najaf alliance (consisting of al-Iraqiya Bloc, Sadrist Trend and the Kurdish Alliance) tried to withdraw confidence from Maliki, charging him with "unilaterally ruling the state and violating the constitution."
President Talabani refused to respond to the powers demanding Maliki's demotion, noting that the demand bore less than 164 signatories, stressing that dialogue and the National Conference are the best ways to overcome political crises.
Talabani's stance stirred criticism from Iraqiya Bloc, the Sadrist Trend and some Kurdish MPs who described his opinion as "unexpected."
A number of meetings were held in Arbil, Najaf and Sulaimaniya over the last few weeks among the blocs that demanded Maliki's demotion to determine their final stand on the political crisis.
