The leaders of the coordination framework meet with Al-Sadr in Najaf to complete the dialogues to form the government
The source told Shafaq News Agency, "The leaders of the coordination framework will visit Al-Sadr at his residence in Al-Hanana area in the city of Najaf, next Tuesday, with the aim of completing dialogues and discussions on the file of the early parliamentary elections."
The source added that the meeting will also discuss the mechanism for selecting the new prime minister and the form of the next government.
The comprehensive coordination framework of the Shiite forces had held the first meeting (on the second Thursday of December) with the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to discuss post-election options and ways to bring together the Shiite house, before forming the next government.
Al-Sadr had announced after the meeting his adherence to the option of forming a political majority government, which is rejected by the Shiite political forces opposed to him.
The Electoral Commission announced the final polling results on Tuesday, November 30, as the Sadrist bloc topped the results with 73 seats, while the "Progress" coalition led by Muhammad al-Halbousi won 37 seats, and the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki won 33 seats.
The Kurdistan Democratic Party won 31 seats, while the Al-Fateh Alliance led by the Secretary-General of Badr Organization Hadi al-Amiri and the Kurdistan Alliance won 17 seats.
The coordination framework of the Shiite forces, which includes the Al-Fateh Alliance under its umbrella, had announced its rejection of the announced results, because of what he said that the commission did not deal seriously with the appeals submitted, stressing its adherence to the lawsuit submitted before the Federal Court to cancel the elections.
