Shafaq News/ An informed political source revealed, on Thursday, that a group of independent deputies met in the capital, Baghdad, on Thursday, which included (a coalition for Iraq and others) to resolve their final position on the coordination framework initiatives and the Sadrist movement.

The source told Shafaq News agency, “Despite the division of opinions regarding the two initiatives, there is almost unanimity to wait in making the decision, and wait for what the leader of the Sadrist movement will decide after the forty-day period has expired.”

The source added: “In addition to the imminent expiration of the deadline granted to them (independents) by al-Sadr, some independent parliamentarians depended on defining their position on it, by declaring the presidency of the parliamentary committees, and therefore there is no unified position unless this is achieved, although the latter is difficult to do at the present time.” .

The comprehensive coordinating framework of Shiite forces, and the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr, put forward an initiative to resolve the blockage, as the framework initiative consisted of nine points, and was accompanied by nine commitments, which included a pivotal role for the independents in naming the prime minister, provided that it is within the framework of the Shiite component, followed by an initiative for al-Sadr.
