About Boycotting the Elections
The leadership of the Worker-communist Party of Iraq waited long for an
answer to their democratic questions regarding fairness and freedom of
elections. When no one cared to answer or even to call for discussing these
conditions, they decided to boycott the elections.
It wanted to correct its first illusion ...with a second one.
In the first position they recognized implicitly that the elections possess
credibility when they forwarded their conditions, which were, to say the
least, naive and cosmetic. They denied the reality entirely and its
circumstances in which that process is supposed to take place. They
considered what has been planned as elections, however in need of
improvements, in order to be able participate.
In the second position (boycotting) they have boycotted what holds no value
to the people and bears no meaning in the actual reality. They boycotted
something that does not exit. They gave this nonsense its absent meaning and
bestowed tragedy features upon a farce. The denial of something confirms its
existence. They confirmed once again that what is taking place is elections.
They erred again.
What happens today in Iraq bears no similarity to the attribute of
elections. Therefore the process could not be possibly negated (whether by
boycotting or otherwise). Elections must be submitted to the main conditions
i.e. the end of the US occupation and the disarmament of all militias,
Islamic, nationalist, and Bathists, in order to end or paralyze the Dark
Scenario and its criminal forces that are controlling the destiny of the
society in Iraq.
Without these conditions, the planned elections are mere nonsense and
consequently their boycott is an adopted twaddle. It suffices to ask any
worker or toiler in Baghdad or Fallujah today: what is your opinion of
boycotting the elections?!.
Hoping the answer to this question would be decent!.
