Erbil (Kurdistan 24) - The former governor of Dhi Qar, Ahmed Al-Khafaji, announced the establishment of a political movement called (We Build It Together), to join the group of competing parties and currents in Iraq.
Al-Khafaji pointed out in a press statement on Sunday that the movement is "in the process of registering and completing its legal procedures with the Independent High Electoral Commission."
The current political parties appeared in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003, after the military intervention of the United States of America. At that time, the Iraqi Governing Council was established, most of whose members were located outside the country.
The former governor stressed that the movement's funding "depends on the donations of its members and independent local supporters, and that its project is national and independent, and is not linked to any internal or external party," without going into other details.
However, he pointed out that the goal of establishing the (We Build It Together) movement is to "enter the upcoming parliamentary elections."
There are more than 30 political parties and movements in Iraq, some of which are old and see themselves as opposing the regime, and recent ones were formed after 2003, but few of them have obtained positions in the government and seats in parliament.
The announcement of the establishment of the new political movement comes in exceptional circumstances that Iraq is going through, with the complexity of the political scene resulting from the dispute between the Sadrist movement and the coordination framework in the form of the government.
Before al-Sadr withdrew from the political process with his deputies, in protest of the coordination framework's adherence to his candidate for prime minister, Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani.
And political parties from the Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites are trying to bridge the views between the current and the framework, to reach an agreement on a consensual candidate, to end the crisis that began since the parliamentary elections in November 2021.
