Baghdad / Obelisk: Informed sources revealed, on Sunday, December 26, 2021, that the Federal Court is heading to ratify the elections, while monitoring the movements of political forces of different positions to deal with the new variable.

The sources emphasized that the ratification of the elections is close to being a fait accompli, and that all political forces must accept it.

The ratification is expected to create a deeper division between the forces that support the election results and those that reject them.

The writer and follower of Iraqi affairs, Hassan Al-Kaabi, said on Twitter that if the Federal Court ratifies the election results, it will prove that it is an independent, non-partisan Iraqi court.  

After the Federal Court ratifies the election results, the President of the Republic calls the House of Representatives to convene within a maximum period of 15 days.

The political forces’ awareness of the inevitability of ratifying the results in their current state pushes them to move to form alliances, as the coordinating framework has strengthened its meetings with the political parties and the containment of allies towards the largest bloc, and narrowing down other opportunities that are trying to seize the initiative.

The Sadrist movement embarked on meetings behind the scenes, and in public, to confirm its decisive role in forming the government.

And important Shiite forces threatened not to participate in the government and turn to the opposition if the elections were approved in their current form.

The Kurdish parties agreed to form a unified negotiating committee from the two main parties, after the Federal Court ratified the election results, to discuss the files that pertain to the Kurds and the region.

The writer and researcher Adnan Abu Zeid expected that the tight approval of the election results would deepen the divisions within the structures of the political forces themselves, resulting in new forms of alliances.

In one of the exciting predictions, the head of the Center for Political Thinking, Ihsan Al-Shammari, said in a television seminar that the political forces should give al-Sadr the opportunity to form a government, and if he goes to the opposition, his audience will go to the street and the government will fall within 6 months at most.
