The national coalition of Iraq led by Iyad Allawi has called to form an emergency national salvation government for the maximum period of one and a half year in-order to lift the country out of its current political crisis.

The coalition said in a statement on Thursday that it would support the salvation government if the Iraqi people wanted it, adding that its tasks would be limited to mobilising the Iraqi people against extremism and terrorism and to continue the battle against Daesh until it has been defeated.

“After that we would start correcting the political process through the abolition of sectarian quotas and marginalisation as well as solving the displaced persons and refugee problems and compensating them,” it said a statement.

It added that it would then move to restore peace, security and prosperity for the Iraqi people and resolve issues relating to Kurdistan.

The statement also called to replace the Independent Electoral Commission with an independent body made up of legal experts, lawyers and specialists.

It stressed that Iraq needed to enact new election laws that would ensure justice and fairness for Iraqi voters in coordination with the United Nations, the Arab League and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.
