Erbil (Kurdistan 24) - The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, has ruled out forming a government without the participation of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr.
Al-Kazemi stressed that any government that excludes the Sadr movement "will face huge challenges, which may lead to a repetition of October 2019, or worse."
Al-Kazemi's statements come with the continuing blockage in the political scene that the country has been witnessing for nearly a year, with the major powers failing to elect the presidents of the republic and government.
A situation that became more complicated when the two sides of the dispute (the Sadrist movement and the coordination framework) took to the street and staged a sit-in in the center of the capital, Baghdad, before turning into armed confrontations that caused deaths and injuries.
In an interview with (Al-Monitor) reported by Al-Arabiya Al-Hadath website, the Iraqi prime minister stressed that "the country needs to distance itself from a past filled with violence," noting that the political class "is facing a crisis of confidence with the public."
Despite the ongoing negotiations between the political parties to find solutions to the crisis, the coordinating framework, which includes Shiite political forces close to Iran, is still sticking to its candidate, Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, for prime minister.
In return for the rejection of the Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr, the Sudanese, whom he considers a shadow of the head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, the most prominent opponent of al-Sadr.
A delegation of Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites is scheduled to go to Al-Hanana, where Al-Sadr resides, to try to find a way out of the political crisis, and to reach an understanding about choosing a consensual candidate for the posts of President and Prime Minister.
