The State of Law bloc defended the absolute majority scheme in forming the new government, saying that the consensus government will not be able to counter corruption in official statement released Sunday.

Member of the bloc Mohamed Saadoun al-Saihoud stated Sunday that the absolute majority system is the only hope for Iraqi people in a better life, since the quota system encourages the financial and administrative corruption, and leads to political chaos.

The MP called on the Iraqi people to actively participate in the upcoming election, choose the right candidate and the right bloc that can form a majority-dominated cabinet, instead of the quota system that only will bring a weak government.

The absolute majority is a system proposed by the former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to promote more of his sectarian propaganda.

Analysts say that after introducing the quota system after the fall of the former president Saddam Hussein's regime to guarantee that his Shia party gets more votes and influence in the Iraqi state, he comes today calling for abolishing it and forming a new system based on the absolute majority.

They added that Maliki attempts to increase the influence of his Iranian sponsors in Iraq and promotes his Shia bloc to be either led by him or by the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) top leader Hadi al-Ameri.

Maliki claims that his new "absolute majority" scheme that he adopted will be a patriotic project that all of the Iraqi factions be part of.

He stated that politicians must save Iraq from the quota system that crippled Iraq, noting that no stability, rebuilding and development if the quota and consensus system is adopted in the country.
