In light of information about differences within the Shiite “coordinating framework” parties over their respective shares in the next Iraqi government headed by Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, the “Sadr Movement” came out for the first time with a clear position on it, describing it as a “militia”, and disavowing anyone of its affiliated members if What joined.
And the “minister of the leader” Saleh Muhammad al-Iraqi, who is close to the leader of the “Sadr movement” Muqtada al-Sadr, published a lengthy tweet that criticized his opponents’ efforts in the “coordinating framework” forces to form a “tested militia coalition” government, as he put it, declaring at the same time his categorical refusal to participate Sadrists in it.
Al-Iraqi said – according to his post on social media – that what is happening is the formation of a government that “did not and will not meet the aspirations of the people, and does not comply with the principle of (the tried is not tried).” He declared his “categorical, clear and explicit rejection of the participation of any of our affiliates who are in the previous or current governments, or those outside them, or those who defected from us before or later, whether from inside and outside Iraq, or any of those affiliated with us directly or indirectly” in the next government. He stressed that anyone participating in it, “does not represent us at all; Rather, we are acquitted of him until the Day of Judgment, and he is considered expelled immediately from us (the Al-Sadr family).”
In the meantime, Al-Sudani began preliminary consultations with the political forces to distribute ministerial portfolios, amid information about differences over quotas that began early among the poles in the “coordinating framework.” Identical sources said that Al-Sudani is “communicating with the Shiite forces to resolve the quota map, but he is facing serious consequences because of the sharp competition between the leaders of the parties.”
A source from the “Al-Fateh Alliance” said that Al-Sudani “may delay before negotiating with the Sunni and Kurdish forces; Because of the complications imposed by the stampede within the framework on the ministerial portfolios.”
