Shafaq News/ On Sunday evening, Nuri al-Maliki chaired a meeting of the State of Law coalition bloc.
The meeting discussed developments in the political situation in the country, and the importance of expediting the formation of a new government “strong and capable of providing services and meeting the requirements of the Iraqi people” was emphasized, according to a statement by al-Maliki’s office.
Al-Maliki stressed the continuation of discussions between the forces of the coordination framework and its allies on the one hand and the rest of the national forces on the other hand, in order to expedite the formation of the government and complete the rest of the constitutional entitlements related to the posts of the Presidency of the Republic and the Council of Ministers.
He pointed out that the coordination framework formed committees to conduct negotiations with the active forces in the political process, expressing his hope that these committees would reach results that would lead to showing the features of the new government after the Eid al-Adha holiday ends.
A source familiar with the political movement of the coordination framework forces had previously revealed the designation of three concerned committees to complete the procedures for forming the government to speed up its announcement.
The source told Shafaq News Agency, “The periodic meetings of the coordinating framework forces resulted in the nomination of three important committees, including the government program writing committee, which includes ten members of the second-grade leaders who specialize in the political, economic and legal fields.”
He added that the second negotiating committee includes some of the leaders who represented the framework in its negotiations with the parties and the active forces in the political process, in addition to the committee for managing the file or the political decision, which includes the leaders of the political forces affiliated with the framework.
Since the Sadrist bloc’s representatives submitted their resignations from the Iraqi Council of Representatives and the withdrawal of the Sadrist movement’s leader Muqtada al-Sadr from the political process, the coordinating framework has addressed the task of forming the new government and entered into internal negotiations and dialogues with other political forces, but until now it has not been officially announced that understandings have been reached between the two parties. The blocs lead to the formation of the government.
