Sadr demands the withdrawal of Abadi from the "call" for a second term

Diaa al-Asadi, official of the Political Bureau of the leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr said that the latter and other political blocs stipulated on Haider Abadi resign from the membership of the Dawa Party for his candidacy for the post of prime minister for a second term.

The Sadrists are trying to play a key role in forming the new Iraqi government after the parliamentary elections that took place on May 12, after winning 54 seats out of 329.

This preference does not entitle the Sadrist movement to form a government alone, but to enter into alliances with other blocs on the grounds that the government must have the confidence of the majority of the members of parliament (165 deputies).

Sadr is also seeking to break the country's traditional alliances and form an alliance capable of further reforming the country after a tumultuous war with the terrorist "Da'ash" organization over three years (2014-2017). But this task will not be easy.

Since last week, Iraq has been witnessing a manual recount of the votes of voters in all governorates of the country, including only those that have allegations of forgery. The results should then be announced and sent to the Federal Supreme Court for approval.

Al-Asadi reveals that there is an understanding between the five blocs (the Sadrists backed by the Sadrist movement) and the victory (led by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, 42 seats), al-Fateh (which includes the popular crowd led by Hadi al-Amiri 47 seats) Iyad Allawi has 21 seats. "

He pointed out that "the coming days may witness a meeting between the parties mentioned, and may lead to the formation of the nucleus of the largest bloc that will form the government."

Iyad Allawi, a liberal Shiite politician who often leads Sunni political forces, has never allied himself with Shiite blocs in previous parliamentary sessions.

It is common practice to unite the Shiites in one bloc, as well as the majority of the Sunnis and Kurds, before the sharing of power among them according to the system known as "quotas", as the Shiites take the presidency of the government, the Kurds presidency and the year the presidency of parliament.

Sadr says the regime has led the country to violence and corruption.

But even if the five blocs resolved their position on the coalition, there is still a crucial issue regarding the choice of candidate for prime minister.

Most of the data indicate that current Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi enjoys good chances to fill the post for a new session provided that his independence from the Dawa Party, which belongs to his predecessor Nuri al-Maliki as well.

"The resignation of Abadi from the Dawa Party demand from the demands of most of the political blocs, as well as Sayyed Muqtada al-Sadr, that the recipient of this post is the president of all Iraq and its belonging to all of Iraq, and we have experience that most of the officials when they assume a certain responsibility, Their association with their party affects their work and shows the party's influence in some joints. "

"At this critical stage, Iraq needs to deal with many problems. We need a personality that is independent and strong, and the administration runs a high denial, and this will only happen if the official enjoys independence from his party and its component."

Differences with Maliki

The former prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki (2006-2014), remains the only one away from Sadr's plans for future alliances to form the next government.

Sadr accuses Maliki of responsibility for the invasion of an organization advocating a third of Iraq, and the spread of corruption and nepotism throughout the country.

"Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr is clear in this matter, that is, that al-Maliki is willing to absolve him of what happened during his years of rule or to bring the defaulters to justice, otherwise there will be no return to the position with him," al-Asadi said.

On the other hand, Sadr did not only criticize those who carry weapons outside the state of the Shiite factions, most of which are linked to Iran, but instead called for the state to take arms from the armed faction known as the "Peace Corps" through its structure and freeze most of its military activity.

But al-Asadi sees difficulty in disarming the Popular Popular factions that fought alongside Iraqi forces in the war against the Da'ash organization at the moment.

"Some argue that the Iraqi military forces were built on the basis of prosecutions and allegiance to personalities, so we need to address these doubts and develop the capability of the military establishment, and then there would be no justification for the presence of weapons other than the official weapon."
