The political crisis in Iraq is heading back to square one, with demands centered on dissolving parliament and holding early parliamentary elections, a position adopted by the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr, but the opposite party, specifically [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , whose positions seemed to conflict with the early elections, It was setting preconditions.
This comes in light of the continued [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in the Green Zone in central Baghdad, while they are preparing to hold a unified prayer today, Friday, inside the Green Zone, specifically in the Victory Square designated for major military parades, amid strict security measures taken by the Iraqi forces in the vicinity of the event.

A security official told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that "the measures stemmed from fears of operations targeting al-Sadr's supporters, in order to detonate the congested situation."

Al-Sadr calls for the dissolution of parliament and early elections

Al-Sadr had called, in a speech delivered from the city of Najaf in southern Iraq on Wednesday evening, to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , considering that there is no benefit from dialogue. He stressed that his current protest movement "is not a struggle for power," declaring that the movement will continue until its demands are met. He continued, "I will not start with bloodshed, and if they do, then reform requires sacrifice." He also indicated that he has not yet decided to participate in the upcoming elections.
In a statement posted on "Twitter" yesterday, Thursday, al-Sadr said that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] "currently is extremely important if it is based on rejecting subordination and real reform, rejecting corruption and the corrupt and prosecuting them." He addressed the "Popular Mobilization" by saying: "They are closer to our opinions, we, the al-Sadr family," adding that "the crowd's mujahideen are fully prepared to defend reform and truth."
Al-Sadr: The unity of the Shiite rank is currently very important if it is based on rejecting subordination and real reform, rejecting corruption and the corrupt and putting them on trial.
A politician close to the Sadrist movement, Fattah al-Sheikh, had told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that "the new early elections must be in an atmosphere free from uncontrolled weapons, political money and the participation of the corrupt, and in which there is an emphasis on the application of the entire provisions of the parties' law, and this What will the Sadrist movement do after turning to this option?

Variations within the "coordinating framework"

Following al-Sadr's call to dissolve parliament and hold early elections, and his rejection of calls for dialogue with the "coordinating framework", different and varied reactions were issued by forces and parties within the framework, some of whom supported this solution, others had reservations about it, and a third set conditions for its implementation.
A prominent Iraqi leader in the "Al-Fateh" coalition, the political wing of the "Popular Mobilization" factions, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that the position within the "coordinating framework" forces was divided until yesterday, between accepting the option of dissolving parliament and holding new elections, Among others, they first require changing the current election law (multiple districts) and hold it responsible for their loss of many seats, and others demand the formation of a new government first that will take upon itself the organization of the next elections, and they refuse to keep Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s government as a non-neutral party and closer to Al-Sadr than them.
He considered that "Al-Sadr raised the ceiling of his demands to dissolve parliament and hold early elections, and this means that we have at least 9 months before the commission can prepare the file for the new elections." On the position of the Sunni and Kurdish forces on the crisis, he stressed that it is "closer to al-Sadr, and there are unannounced and continuous contacts between the leaderships of the Sovereignty Alliance and the Democratic Party to coordinate positions."
He pointed out that "the efforts of friendly parties have contributed in the past two days to controlling the situation and preventing their interaction in the Shiite al-Sadr and al-Atari street, but in any case, the situation is still tense within the political center."

For his part, the head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Faleh al-Fayyad, told Al-Jazeera that the rerun of the parliamentary elections is no longer an issue for the Sadrist movement, noting that the "coordinating framework" has not yet taken its official position on holding early elections.
But he considered that dissolving parliament and holding early elections would be a solution in the event that all blocs and other political parties agree, pointing out that the system of government in Iraq is consensual and one position cannot be accepted for a specific party. He believed that the current government is a caretaker government and does not have the powers to hold re-elections.

In the same context, former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki issued a statement in which he responded to al-Sadr's call for elections, saying that "there must be a return to the constitution and respect for constitutional institutions." He considered that the solution "is through serious dialogues, from which we hope to resolve differences and restore matters to their rightful place."
For his part, the leader of the "Al-Fateh" coalition, Hadi al-Amiri, announced his support for holding early elections, but added that holding elections "requires a comprehensive dialogue in order to set a date, mechanisms and requirements for holding them, and to provide appropriate climates for free, fair and transparent elections that restore citizen's confidence in the political process."
As for the leader of the "Victory" coalition, Haider al-Abadi, who is one of the pillars of the "coordinating framework", he welcomed al-Sadr's request to hold early elections, considering in his statement that "the step is to preserve blood and achieve reform." He called on everyone to "join hands to serve the people, reform the system and strengthen the constitutional state."
In the context of the disputes within the “coordinating framework”, political sources in Baghdad revealed to “Al-Araby Al-Jadeed” that a meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday night for the leaders of the “framework” was postponed due to the failure of many coalition leaders to attend the meeting that was scheduled at the home of the leader of the Islamic Council. Above, Hammam Hammoudi.
According to the sources, the non-attendance is due to differences in viewpoints, especially between Al-Maliki and Khazali on the one hand, and Al-Amri, Al-Abadi and Al-Fayyad on the other. It revealed efforts by the UN envoy in Baghdad, Jenin Plasschaert, to play a role in the coming days, to create an atmosphere that would allow meetings between representatives of the Iraqi political forces.
On the other hand, a member of the Iraqi civil movement, Ahmed Haqqi, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that the civil and secular forces will issue a statement in support of dissolving parliament and holding early elections. He added that the general trend is for civilians and independents to participate strongly and not to boycott any future elections, whether the "Tishreen Forces" or the Communist Party.
For his part, a member of the Sadrist movement, Muhammad al-Daraji, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that the presence of the movement's supporters in the Green Zone "continues until directives are issued by Najaf," referring to Al-Sadr. He talked about the imminent entry of "other non-Sadr popular activities on the line of protests in Baghdad", without naming any of them, but the closest that they are meant is the clans that announced their support for al-Sadr earlier.
