Today, Thursday, the head of the Ataa movement, Faleh al-Fayyad, confirmed that the rerun of the parliamentary elections is no longer an issue for the Sadrist movement, pointing out that the rerun of the elections is not within the authority of the caretaker government.
Al-Fayyad said, in a televised interview, that "the current government is a caretaker government, and the re-election is not a prerogative of the caretaker government," noting that "the demands to dissolve parliament are a big issue that cannot be accepted when it is raised by one party."
He added, "The re-run of the parliamentary elections is no longer an issue for the Sadrist movement, and its re-run has become a concern for other components and alliances as well."
Al-Fayyad added, "The coordination framework has not yet taken its official position on the issue of holding early parliamentary elections," noting that "the presence of masses under the dome of Parliament is not a normal thing, and we are dealing with it as a temporary situation that can be bypassed."
And he indicated, "The proposals of the leader of the Sadrist movement to resolve the crisis can be discussed to reach common positions on it, and that dissolving parliament and holding early elections will be a solution in the event that all blocs and other political parties agree."
He stressed, "The current government is a caretaker government, and the re-election is not within the powers of the caretaker government."
Al-Fayyadh pointed out that "the demands for dissolving Parliament are a big issue that cannot be accepted when it is raised by one party, and that the system of government in Iraq, according to the constitution, is consensual, and one position cannot be accepted for a specific party."
