Iraq.. Muqtada al-Sadr clings to a national majority government

Baghdad / Ali Jawad / Anatolia –

The Iraqi Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr, whose political alliance won the highest seats in the parliamentary elections, reiterated his assertion to proceed with the formation of a national majority government.

This came in a tweet to him, on Sunday, one day after a meeting with Hadi Al-Amiri, the leader in the “coordinating framework”.

Al-Sadr said in his tweet: “No eastern, not western, national majority government.”

Eastern and Western are terms used by Al-Sadr to indicate his rejection of Iranian and American foreign interference in forming the government.

Al-Sadr’s position comes one day after his meeting at his home in Najaf, in the south of the country, with Hadi al-Amiri, the leader of the “Al-Fateh” coalition, which includes most of the popular crowd factions, and is affiliated with the “coordinating framework.”

The Sadrist bloc topped the October 10 elections, with 73 seats, followed by the Progress Alliance with 37, the State of Law coalition with 33, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party with 31.

For weeks, the axis of the forces of the coordination framework, which includes the State of Law coalition, the State Forces Alliance, the Victory Alliance, the Al-Fateh Alliance (the Popular Mobilization factions are some close to Iran), the Ataa Movement, and the Virtue Party, have led to understandings that lead to the formation of a political majority government far from the orientations of al-Sadr, who adopts Formation of a national majority government.

The political majority adopted by the “coordinating framework” blocs is the formation of a government with a Shiite majority, while al-Sadr adopts the formation of a national government, which is the partnership of all nationalities components of the Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds.
