Attempt to collect 2% of Basra population to form a region
9/16/2011 1:47 PM

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Ex- Basra Governor Mohammed Musabih al-Wa'ili announced today that the signatures of 20% of Basra population shall be gathered, following Premier Nouri al-Maliki's rejection to establish a region there, pointing out that such rejection is "constitutional violation".
 
Wa'ili informed Aswat al-Iraq  that premier Maliki rejected the request of one third of Basra council to form Basra region.
 
"This demand was made because the local government cannot fulfill the basic needs of the province, due to central resolutions, and the deterioration of services that reached to catastrophic limits", he added.
 
He added that most of the Basra people believe that the formation of the region is the only solution of destruction, negligence and centralism.
 Judge Wa'il Abdu-lateef demanded earlier the formation of Basra region, but his attempt failed to get the 2% figure in order to make the general consensus.
 
Basra, center of the province, lies 590 km south of the capital, Baghdad.
