Al-Sadr: God does not judge us (the corrupt)
This came in a tweet he posted on social networking sites "Twitter" on the occasion of the tenth of Muharram, the anniversary of the killing of Imam Hussein bin Ali and a group of his family and companions in the year 61 AH by the army of the Umayyad Caliph Yazid bin Muawiyah, what is known as the "Al-Tuff" incident in Karbala, Iraq.
Al-Sadr said in his tweet today, "God does not judge us (corrupt), and like me, he does not pledge allegiance to (corruption), will not Nasser help us!?"
Al-Sadr's position comes after the head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, refused, on Monday, to dissolve the Iraqi parliament and hold early elections, except after the parliament returns to meeting normally.
Al-Sadr recently adopted the slogan of dissolving the House of Representatives and proceeding to hold early elections in the country, after bringing the followers of the current to the street in a clear position in raising the ceiling of demands against the background of the failure in the political process.
The political scene in Iraq has undergone serious developments since supporters of the Sadrist movement led by prominent Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr stormed the parliament building in the fortified Green Zone in central Baghdad, and protested against the nomination of the coordination framework, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, for the position of Prime Minister for the next federal government.
Then, near the suspension bridge leading to the Green Zone, demonstrations against the Sadrist movement took place by the audience of the coordination framework, after an invitation from the "Organizing Committee to Support Legitimacy and Preserve State Institutions."
The Sadrist bloc had obtained the highest votes in the early legislative elections that took place in October of 2021, but the efforts of the leader of the current failed to form the new federal government due to the Shiite coordination framework standing in its way by obtaining a fatwa from the Federal Court with the so-called blocking third in a contract The session for electing the President of the Republic, which paves the way for naming the Prime Minister.
The three-way alliance between the Kurdistan Democratic Party led by Masoud Barzani, the Sovereignty Alliance headed by Khamis al-Khanjar, and the Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr was broken following the resignation of the Sadrist bloc's deputies, and the movement's withdrawal from the political process by order of al-Sadr.
The political scene is living in a crisis situation and a dead end unprecedented in the history of Iraq, as more than 300 days have passed since the early elections without being able to form a new government in the country, and the survival of the caretaker government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi.
On the tenth of last October, Iraq held early legislative elections to get out of a political crisis that swept the country after large demonstrations in the central and southern regions in 2019 in protest against the widespread unemployment in society, the spread of financial and administrative corruption in government departments and institutions, and the deteriorating reality The service and the livelihood, which prompted the former prime minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, to resign under popular pressure.
As soon as the preliminary results of the elections were announced, the voices of political forces and actors rose in their rejection of losing many seats, accusing them of major fraud in the ballot, which was denied by the executive and judicial authorities, at a time when the United Nations and international organizations praised the integrity of the electoral process.
