6. Yamao, Dai, “From Regional Politics to Street Demonstrations: Changes in the Iraqi Communist Party’s Political Strategies in the Post-war Era”, International Journal of Contemporary Iraqi Studies, 12 (2), pp. 147-165., 2018.09, This article analyses how the Iraqi Communist Party (ICP) altered its political strategies
in post-war Iraq. After the decline of the political presence, the ICP formed large
alliances with small parties in the third round of local and national elections, opting
to support candidates on a national scale; in doing so, the ICP achieved significant
breakthrough. The party’s election strategy not only led to the ICP’s success but also
to the overall stabilization of Iraqi party politics. After the rise of ISIS, the ICP overcame
its ideological differences with Sadrist factions that similarly stood alongside
the masses; pursuing large-scale demonstrations, the ICP found further opportunities
to carry out its political activities. The ICP has thus been adroit in adapting its
political strategies according to political and social circumstances. As Islamist groups
have seized political power and religious sentiment has spread, the ICP might be
seen as pursuing the best of strategies that remain available to it..
