The “fever” of the Iraqi government formation movement is escalating, and the framework resorts to the “fines” of the dagger and Al-Halbousi
Shafaq News/ An informed political source said this evening, Thursday, that a delegation from the coordination framework that includes Shiite forces, with the exception of the Sadrist movement, met with the leadership of the "Azm" coalition, to discuss the formation of the expected government.
The source told Shafaq News Agency, "The coordination framework delegation, headed by the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, held a meeting with leaders of the Azm Alliance led by Muthanna al-Samarrai, to discuss holding the parliament session dedicated to electing the president of the republic, and resolving the file of forming the Iraqi government."
The Iraqi parliament had previously failed in three sessions to achieve a quorum to elect the president of the republic. The largest number, and then go to the election of the President of the Republic and the formation of the government.
According to the Iraqi constitution, the Council of Representatives must hold a session attended by two-thirds of the number of deputies, or 220 out of 229 deputies, to elect the President of the Republic, who in turn will guarantee the largest parliamentary bloc to nominate the prime minister and his cabinet.
As a result of this political blockage, the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, triggered a surprise of the highest caliber in early April, when he announced his withdrawal and the Sadrist bloc from negotiations to form the government and held a session to elect the president of the republic, and threw the ball in the court of the coordination framework and gave them 40 days to form the government. And in the event of their failure, he will take over the task of forming a government.
Earlier today, a leader in the Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr told Shafaq News Agency, "The leader of the movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, sent messages to his allies in the Alliance to Save a Homeland, the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Alliance of Sovereignty, that he did not intend to go to the opposition."
And the leader, who preferred to remain anonymous, said that "Al-Sadr told the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Sovereignty Alliance, that he will not give up the project of the national majority government, and will complete this project after the expiry of the forty-day period given to the coordination framework to form the next government."
The leader in the movement added, "Al-Sadr realizes the inability of the framework to form any government without the participation and support of the Sadrist movement, and that is why he will complete the move towards forming a government after Eid al-Fitr."
