Abtan revealed moves by leaders in "Save the Homeland" to hold a session on Wednesday, stressing that the tripartite alliance "is coherent and has a vision and program, and is thinking of a new construction that contradicts Iraq's old dangerous situation through quotas."
The leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Shwan Taha, confirmed to "Ultra Iraq", that "the tripartite coalition is still determined to establish a national majority government and elect its candidate, Reber Ahmed, for the position," noting that "the coalition meeting identified several important points to be addressed in the next session."

One third of a guaranteed guarantor
On the other hand, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan is still insisting on its candidate for the presidency, Barham Salih, interrupting, as announced by the session on Wednesday, accompanied by the coordination framework.
The union calls for "starting dialogues and adopting a comprehensive national project to save Iraq," betting on the inability of the tripartite alliance, as well as "any political party to proceed with the formation of the government with the presence of the guarantor third."
The leader of the Union, Ghazi Kakai, says that "the guarantor third is guaranteed and certain, and it is not possible for the party to elect the president of the republic," and at the same time, the union "is committed to the methodology of Mam Jalal Talabani, and he could have passed Barham Salih, but he failed to give the Shiite house the opportunity to agree."
Regarding the hypothesis of dissolving the parliament, Kakai said in a television interview followed by "Ultra Iraq", that the union "is not with the dissolution of parliament, and we hope to go to understandings to get out of the political blockage."
In turn, a member of the coordination framework, Arif Al-Hamami, spoke about the "lack of understandings or resolving matters with the Triple Alliance, while he stuck to his position on not attending Wednesday's session devoted to voting on the President of the Republic."
Al-Hamami said that "until now, there have been no understandings and no resolution of matters, so the coordinating framework adheres to its position and will not attend Parliament's session next Wednesday," expressing his hope that "there will be an understanding before the session."
He added, "If there are understandings, surely there will be a change in the situation," noting that "the number of deputies who boycotted the session to choose the president of the republic amounted to 126 deputies, according to the signatures we collected, in addition to deputies who did not attend the session and did not sign," while he expected that "the number of boycotters will reach up to More than 137 deputies, and in this case, the blocking third is still in place.
