Al-Sadr directs the Sadrist bloc’s deputies to hand over their resignation to Al-Halbousi: My allies are free from me
Al-Sadr's decision comes shortly after a phone call he had with Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani, which dealt with the current political situation.
Al-Sadr said, in a statement in his handwriting and appended with his stamp and signature, a copy of which was received by Shafak News Agency, "The head of the Sadrist bloc, Hassan al-Adhari, should submit the resignations of the sisters and brothers in the bloc to the Speaker of Parliament, with great thanks for what they provided with this short period, as Thanks are due to our allies in the Save and the Homeland Alliance for their patriotism and steadfastness, and they are now free from me.”
Al-Sadr also gave special thanks to his cousin "Jaafar Al-Sadr, who was our independent candidate for prime minister."
Al-Sadr added that this step is a sacrifice from me for the sake of the homeland and the people to rid them of the unknown fate, as we sacrificed previously for the liberation of Iraq, its sovereignty, security, unity and stability.
Al-Sadr concluded his statement, saying, "The nation and the people are first.. God, I absolve myself before you and my people."
Al-Sadr, who completes the sides of the "Save the Homeland" triangle (the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Sadrist Bloc, and Sovereignty), had threatened last Thursday to remain in the opposition or to withdraw completely from the political process, unless a "national majority" government was formed, as directed by members of his parliamentary bloc. write their resignations in preparation for submission to the Presidency of Parliament.
It is noteworthy that a delegation from the Coordination Framework, led by the head of the Al-Fateh Alliance Hadi Al-Amiri, has withdrawn from the visit to Erbil and the meeting with the leaders of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, which was scheduled to take place last Friday, after postponing it until further notice.
