Al-Maliki's coalition comments on the negotiations between the framework and the current in Tehran
And press reports had talked about mediation led by Iran to bring the "current" and "the framework" closer and alleviate the depth of the political differences between them.
The leader of the coalition, Bahaa Al-Din Al-Nouri, told Shafaq News Agency, "The news that talks about the existence of dialogue and negotiation between the coordination framework and the Sadrist movement in Iran are absolutely incorrect, as there is no dialogue and negotiation outside Iraq."
And he indicated that "the differences between the coordination framework and the Sadrist movement are an internal Iraqi issue, and that is why there is no relation to Tehran or any international party to any dialogue between the framework and the current."
Al-Nouri also indicated that "the communication channels are here in Iraq, and during the coming period, the meetings between the two parties will return directly."
The dispute raged between the two Shiite poles represented by the Sadrist movement, which won the highest votes in the elections that took place on the tenth of October last year, and the coordination framework that includes blocs that expressed their rejection of the election results.
The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, insists on forming a majority government that excludes figures from the coordination framework who played an active role in the political process over the past years.
On the tenth of last October, Iraq held early legislative elections to get out of a political crisis that swept the country after large demonstrations in the central and southern regions in 2019 in protest against the widespread unemployment in society, the spread of financial and administrative corruption in government departments and institutions, and the deteriorating reality The service and the livelihood, which prompted the former prime minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, to resign under popular pressure.
As soon as the preliminary results of the recent elections were announced, the voices of political forces and actors rose to rejecting the loss of many seats, accusing them of major fraud in the ballot, which was denied by the executive and judicial authorities, at a time when the United Nations and international organizations praised the integrity of the electoral process.
