A recent piece about Basra in*The Economist*made an interesting point about Iraqi politics today, noting that while in Basra the provincial council suffers deep political divisions, the nearby province of Maysan has a spirit of cooperation under the much lauded, long time governor Ali Dawai Lazem.
PM Abadi (pictured)*seems to share this view: according to Shafaq News, the Iraqi leader has suggested that the province, which enjoys significant foreign investment and recently hosted a major IOC conference, should be a model for the rest of Iraq.
Of course, as with every sound idea the PM has, policy implementation may be another matter.
