    Baghdad / Obelisk: The Iraqi parliament will meet on Thursday in a session aimed at electing a new president, but the divisions that led to a year-long political crisis may still hinder progress.
    Representatives meet more than a year after the October 10, 2021 elections.
    Sadr withdrew his 73 deputies from the assembly and announced in August that he was stepping down from politics, sparking the worst violence in Baghdad in years when his supporters stormed a government headquarters and clashed with rival groups.
    Al-Sadr initially sought to form a parliamentary majority in alliance with Kurdish and Sunni parties, excluding Shi'ite groups he quarrels with.
    The presidency is largely a ceremonial position, but the election of a new president represents a major step in the political process as the president invites the candidate of the largest parliamentary bloc to form a government.
    Under a power-sharing system designed to avoid sectarian conflict, the president of Iraq would be a Kurd, his prime minister a Shi'ite, and the speaker of parliament a Sunni.
    The selection of a president has been hampered by a dispute between the main Kurdish parties that run the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region in northern Iraq.
    The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan has held the presidency since 2003. Its rival, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, which has received the largest number of Kurdish votes so far, is insisting on its candidate.
    Mahma Khalil, an MP from the Kurdistan Democratic Party, said that no agreement had yet been reached with the PUK.
    Khalil added that talks are still ongoing with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and more time is needed, and a session should not be held before an agreement is reached.
    Ghiath al-Sorshi, a prominent member of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, said that no agreement has been reached so far and it appears to be a thorny issue.
    And the media quoted, Wednesday, October 12, 2022, according to Iraqi sources, that an agreement was concluded between the political blocs to nominate Abdul Latif Rashid for the presidency of the Republic, and at the same time the Kurdistan Democratic Party announced its refusal to make any concessions about its candidate for the presidency.
    She said, "The agreement of the Iraqi forces came after a parliamentary session, during which the date of the election session for the president was set, earlier today."
    Sources stated that "the agreement on Rashid comes after negotiations between the State Administration Alliance, the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union."
    She added that "the coordinating framework is continuing to nominate Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani to form the Iraqi government."
    But a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Rebin Salam, also said that "the presidency of the republic is a political and electoral entitlement for the party, as it has the largest number of seats in the Kurdish component."
    Salam wondered: “Why is the Democratic Party intended to make concessions on the position, while the other parties, including the National Union, do not show any cooperation in this matter and insist on their positions and the names they choose, despite their lack of acceptability.”
