With civil disobedience... the Sadrists threaten the parliament session
Shafaq News/ A prominent leader in the Sadrist movement revealed, on Thursday, the escalatory steps that the supporters of the movement will take in the event that a parliamentary session is held to pass the President of the Republic and assign the Coordinating Framework candidate, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, with the tasks of forming the government.
The prominent leader told Shafaq News Agency, asking not to be named, that "the Sadrist movement's audience is preparing for an open sit-in in front of the Iraqi parliament, if such a session is held."
He added that "the Sadrist movement's audience will take all popular escalation methods, to prevent the passing of the President of the Republic and the assignment of the Sudanese, and the escalation may turn not only to a sit-in, but even to civil disobedience, which is the option strongly proposed," according to him.
Earlier today, the Presidency of the Iraqi Council of Representatives denied setting a date for the election of the President of the Republic, stressing that what was published about setting it as "next Saturday" is not true.
Shafak News Agency monitored; Movement and calls within the Sadrist movement, published on social media, threaten to storm the House of Representatives again if the coordinating framework insists on the nomination of Muhammad Shia al-Sudani for the position of prime minister.
