The Maker of Kings faces a challenge in front of the city of Iraq .. And his political future unknownFollow-up / Sky Press

Although the US Wall Street Journal described the Iraqi cleric Moqtada al-Sadr as “the king’s maker” in his country, in a report, he said that the man faces a great challenge of meeting the hopes of his popular base in Sadr City, , Named after his father. The Sadr-led coalition has achieved significant results in the recent parliamentary elections, enabling it to play a major role in shaping the country’s political life over the next few years. According to the newspaper, Baghdad’s poor Sadr City has contributed to an unexpected victory in the Iraqi cleric’s election, and now its alliance faces a daunting task of carrying out promises of noble change for the city’s poor.

Muqtada and his family are closely linked to Sadr City, with its shabby streets adorned with pictures of the chest with its gray beard in its black dress and distinctive turban, as well as pictures of his father, Mohammed Sadiq al-Sadr, who was assassinated in 1999 following his opposition to Saddam Hussein.

Since his victory in the recent elections, al-Sadr has met with people from across the Iraqi political spectrum, but he has said little but his vague tweets. “We will start, God willing, in a new phase of building Iraq and a democratic patriarchal government of technocrats,” he told a news conference after the election. Did not respond to requests for an interview, which put many question marks about the existence of a program and a clear vision of him or his political alliance or religious trend. The country’s leaders face enormous challenges, including the reconstruction of war-ravaged areas and the re-establishment of the organization.

A Sadr-backed government is unlikely to follow the World Bank fund’s recommendations to curb public spending and plug the budget deficit. Sadr’s political allies have blocked an attempt by Abadi to lift subsidies on electricity, which cost the state about $ 10 billion a year. Sadr’s followers say they are still focused on helping the country’s poor, who make up about 30 percent of the country’s population of more than 37 million, according to Ebadi’s office. “We are going to fight for the rights of these people,” said Alaa al-Rubaie, one of the six candidates from Sadr City who won seats in the next parliament in the Saeron Alliance. “The electorate will have to wait to see whether there is really hope or go into a more frustrating stage.
