Shafaq News/ A deputy from the coordination framework revealed today, Saturday, a move to bring the views of the Shiite forces closer after the Kurdish rapprochement over the position of the President of the Republic, in which she denied the existence of an agreement with the independents on the candidate for the presidency of the next Council of Ministers.
Representative Ibtisam Al-Hilali told Shafaq News Agency, “The coordinating framework is holding continuous meetings to resolve the crisis and get out of the political blockage,” noting that “there is a movement to bring the views closer between the Shiite forces included in the coordination framework and the Sadrist bloc after the Kurdish rapprochement over the position of the President of the Republic.”
Al-Hilali added, “The news that talks about the existence of an agreement that brings together the coordination framework and independent parliamentarians to choose Haider al-Abadi as a candidate for the post of Prime Minister are incorrect.”
Al-Hilali continued, “Until this moment, there is no agreement between the coordination framework and the Sadrist bloc or the framework and the independents on a specific personality for the position of prime minister of the new government.”
The President of the Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani, visited the city of Sulaymaniyah a few days ago, and met the leaders of the parties there, including the National Union, to discuss political crises and disputes.
The PUK considered “Barzani’s visit to Sulaymaniyah a blessing to unify the Kurdish ranks, solve political problems and form the next government,” stressing that “the visit represented a joy for the Iraqis and a victory for the Kurdish forces to break the blockage and expedite the selection of the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister of the Federal.”
