Sadr distanced himself from the formation of the Iraqi government

 

The leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr pledged not to provide the alliance, “which is supported by any candidate for the upcoming cabinet in Iraq, to ​​allow the full freedom of Prime Minister-designate Adel Abdul-Mahdi to choose members of his government without partisan pressure.

In a tweet posted on his Twitter page, al-Sadr said: “We started the steps of reform and we are doing them as much as possible. We managed to make the prime minister independent and even free from the corruption of the previous government and instructed him to form his ministerial group without partisan pressure or sectarian or ethnic division while preserving the Iraqi mosaic the beautiful”.

“We have instructed us not to nominate any minister for any ministry on our part, no matter what, and we agreed to give him a period of time to prove his successes to proceed with great strides towards building Iraq on the right bases,” he said.

Al-Sadr concluded by saying that either reform will gradually win or the people will rise up completely.

The Iraqi President Barham Saleh had commissioned on Tuesday the veteran Shiite politician Adel Abdul Mahdi to form a new government, and Abdul Mahdi, thirty days from the date of his mandate to submit his government to parliament to give it confidence.

Abdul Mahdi was chosen by consensus among the various political forces, including the “Sason” coalition, which was elected in May with 54 seats out of 329.

Abdul Mahdi began yesterday consultations to form a new government for the next four years, and met Abdul Mahdi with the outgoing Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi to discuss “the formation of the next government and its challenges.”

Over the years since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003, Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds have shared high-ranking positions in the state, as is commonly known as quotas.

Sadr considers that the quota was behind the spread of corruption and the lack of security in the country, and seeks to be the next government of technocrats technicians non-partisan.
