Shafaq News/ A source in the office of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, revealed on Wednesday that the latter’s visit to Baghdad comes to end the controversy surrounding the dispersal of the Shiite house by trying to attract forces from the parties to the coordination framework to move forward to the stage of forming the next government.

The source told Shafaq News Agency, “Al-Sadr will hold a meeting within the next 24 hours with the forces of the coordination framework to end the state of hesitation among some forces wishing to ally with him, in addition to deciding how to form the next government according to the program of the government of the national majority.”

The source added that “Al-Sadr is still insisting on the inclusion of certain forces in his alliance, and according to the data, he will enter into an alliance with the most prominent leaders of the framework that have a reliable parliamentary weight, including the Al-Fateh alliance led by Hadi Al-Amiri, as well as Faleh Al-Fayyad, the leader of the National Contract Alliance, along with some leaders.” other Shiites.

He pointed out that “those forces had expressed their desire to enter into an alliance with al-Sadr, but al-Sadr’s positions rejecting an alliance with Nuri al-Maliki, prevented that.”

And the source continued by saying, “Al-Maliki had agreed with Al-Amiri that if he abandoned him today, he (Al-Maliki) will abandon him (Al-Amiri) tomorrow, and from this point of view, Al-Sadr may face some difficulty in cutting or splitting the unity of the coordinating framework.”

He said that “the next meeting between some of the framework forces and al-Sadr will inevitably lead to agreements or important outcomes,” adding that “this meeting will be followed by a meeting in tenderness between al-Sadr and some of the framework forces, if the two parties agree on a specific scenario to be announced from there.”

In addition, the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Ali Hussein Al-Fatlawi, told Shafaq News Agency, “Al-Sadr’s visit comes to meet the forces allied with him, in addition to meeting with the coordination framework forces.”

He added that “the meeting with the leaders of the framework will focus on the formation of the Shiite alliance as well as the form of the next government,” noting that “the coordinating framework forces will confirm their fixed vision by all forces, which is either to enter as a single coordinating framework or not to alliance and go to the opposition.”

Al-Fatlawi pointed out that “there are external wills that seek to disperse or divide the Shiite house, and these foreign attempts seek to empty the Shiite component of its content,” adding that “all matters remain subject to the agreements of the leaders of the political forces, whether in the framework or the current.”

For his part, a source in the coordination framework told Shafaq News Agency, that the meeting between Al-Sadr and the leaders of the framework will be held at Al-Amiri’s house, in the presence of all the leaders of the framework except for Al-Maliki.

He pointed out that “the meeting will discuss the mechanism for selecting the prime minister, forming the next government, and agreeing on an agreement paper and including it in the next stage.”

Al-Sadr had arrived earlier Wednesday to the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to discuss with the political forces, especially the leaders of the coordination framework, on the alliances that will lead to the formation of the next government.

Al-Sadr, whose list topped the elections, had said in a televised statement, yesterday, Tuesday, that he offered the Coordinating Framework Forces to enter into a national majority government on the condition that the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, did not participate, but they refused.

Al-Sadr blames Al-Maliki, who headed the government for two consecutive terms (2006-2014), for rampant corruption and acts of violence in the country, in addition to the ISIS invasion of a third of Iraq in the summer of 2014.

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.

Al-Sadr seeks to form a national majority government, unlike the rest of the coordinating framework forces, which demand a consensual government in which all political forces in Parliament participate, similar to previous sessions.
