Al-Sadr retreats and announces his participation in the legislative electionsShafaq News/ The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, announced on Friday that he will run for the legislative elections to be held on the tenth of next October, reversing his previous position in which he decided to boycott them.

Al-Sadr had decided in mid-July to boycott the parliamentary elections.

Al-Sadr announced in a televised speech today that he had received a reform paper from the political forces, saying: This paper came in accordance with our aspirations, calling at the same time for a pause under the dome of Parliament to implement the terms of the reform paper.

He added, “Returning to the electoral project has become an acceptable matter, and we will contest the elections with determination to save Iraq from corruption, occupation, dependency and normalization,” adding that “the interest required us to run in the million elections.”
