Coordination framework: Our participation in the voting session on the new president depends on our agreement with Al-Sadr
The leader in the framework, MP Ahmed Al-Moussawi, told Shafak News Agency; "The forces of the coordinating framework have not made up their minds until this moment in participating in the parliament session devoted to voting on the new president of the republic, and this matter depends on negotiations and dialogues with the Sadrist movement."
Al-Moussawi indicated that "in the event that there is a final agreement with the Sadrist movement on the process of forming the new government, the forces of the coordination framework will participate in the session.
The Speaker of Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi, announced on March 15 that "it was decided to set Saturday, corresponding to March 26, as the date for the parliament session to elect the president of the republic."
Earlier, the Iraqi Council of Representatives announced the names of 40 candidates for the presidency.
The council noted the exclusion of five candidates, one of whom is covered by the accountability and justice procedures, and the other four for reasons related to their university degrees.
