BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: The Chairman of al-Iraqiya Coalition, Iyad Allawi, has launched a strong attack against Iraq’s Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, charging him with lying, hypocrisy, deception and depending on the foreigner and Iran to become prime minister.
“He (Maliki) has forgotten that he was and still is holding the position of defense, interior, national security ministers and the intelligence chairman, and had depended on the foreigner and was supported by Iran to become prime minister,” Allawi said in a televised interview on Friday.
Allawi also charged Maliki, the Chairman of the Shiite al-Daawa Party, with having fabricated a false charge against him “with having been behind an attack against a group of citizens, who were celebrating a wedding party in an Iraqi area, and preparing to carry out a military coup.”
“They (Maliki’s regime) have lied to our people, in his 100-day period, forgetting that he had been heading al-Daawa Party for five years, ruling the country, and demanding to account others for those 100 days, though he doesn’t possess a program for his government, and hasn’t discussed such program, neither with the cabinet ministers or the Parliament,” Allawi said.
“I shoulder the International Community with responsibility to protect Iraq against Iran’s interference and to secure the balancing of the political process, that had lost such balancing, in order to keep Maliki in power,” he said.
Allawi said that “the International Community bears great responsibility for what is taking place in Iraq nowadays, where he (Maliki) had possessed elimination bodies and modern technology, that enable him to help killers, terrorists and al-Qaeda emirs (commanders) to escape from prisons, whilst he had admitted innocent people into prisons and violated human rights.”
Al-Iraqiya Leader, said that “al-Daawa Party’s Leader, Nouri al-Maliki, was facing a historic phase and a serious accounting, before his ministers and his Party, with having been directing some of his ministers and supporters, to lead criminals and mercenaries, to attack his people.”
“I say it in front of Allah (God) and before you (people) that we shall not leave the young revolutionary men of Iraq to stay alone, in facing him, who tries to create a new dictatorship in Iraq.
They shall enjoy our full support, while practicing their constitutional right in expressing the hopes and demands of the people,” Allawi concluded.
