Al-Amiri suggests to Al-Sadr the exclusion of Al-Maliki and the participation of his coalition in the government
Al-Sadr had arrived yesterday evening, Wednesday, to the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to discuss with the political forces to form the next government.
This is scheduled to meet the leader of the Sadrist movement with the executive framework Ameri's house this afternoon.
The source told Shafak News Agency, that Al-Amiri will hand over Al-Sadr during today's meeting a consensus paper that the coordinating framework blocs will participate in the government that the Sadrist movement will form in agreement with the framework.
He explained that "the State of Law coalition will also participate in the formation of the expected government along with the Al-Fateh coalition and the Sadrist movement, but the head of the coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, will not obtain any executive position in the next government, according to al-Sadr's condition."
Al-Sadr, whose list topped the elections, had said in a televised statement, the day before yesterday, Tuesday, that he offered the Coordinating Framework Forces to enter into a national majority government on the condition that the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, did not participate, but they refused.
Al-Sadr blames Al-Maliki, who headed the government for two consecutive terms (2006-2014), for rampant corruption and acts of violence in the country, in addition to the ISIS invasion of a third of Iraq in the summer of 2014.
The Sadrist bloc topped the October 10 elections, with 73 seats, followed by the Progress Alliance with 37, the State of Law coalition with 33, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party with 31.
Al-Sadr seeks to form a national majority government, unlike the rest of the coordinating framework forces, which demand a consensual government in which all political forces in Parliament participate, similar to previous sessions.
