Iraq, il primo ministro Mohammed Shia’ al-Sudani deve affrontare di petto la corruzione (Renad Mansour, Hayder Al-Shakeri, Chathamm House)

After nearly a year of political gridlock and violence, Iraq has a new government and a new prime minister, Mohammed Shia’ al-Sudani. Sudani has made several reform pledges, including creating tens of thousands of new jobs and tackling rampant corruption. His predecessors all made similar promises, but ultimately failed to deliver. Can Sudani chart a different path, or will he repeat their mistakes?

He takes office at a time when many Iraqis feel disenfranchised. In the almost 20 years since regime change, Iraq’s elite have steadily lost economic and ideological power. The country’s economic decline and a growing youth population have put a strain on the system. It is increasingly hard for new leaders to claim to be genuine reformists when, over the past two decades, the political elite have presided over immense wealth (with annual budgets of around $100 billion) but have failed to deliver basic services, such as electricity and water.
