Forces rejecting the election results threaten to escalate and call for Friday of the last chanceShafaq News/ The so-called Preparatory Committee for Demonstrations and Sit-ins Rejecting the results of the elections in Iraq threatened on Thursday to escalate its protest led by several Shiite forces other than the Sadrist movement.

The committee said in a statement, “The Electoral Commission is still playing a suspicious role in dealing with the challenges submitted and supported by evidence and argument… We call on the Supreme Judicial Council and the esteemed Federal Court to intervene effectively to save the country from the danger of what the Commission has caused to the people of Al-Faqq.”

The statement also called on “our masses in all the governorates of Iraq to stage peaceful demonstrations, perhaps the last of them will be under the title (Friday of the Last Chance) before we start another escalating stage of protest to express our grievances and recover our stolen voices, our stolen wills and our lost rights.”

Since the Independent High Commission announced the results of the legislative elections that took place last October, Shiite parties that own armed factions expressed their rejection of these results, and began to escalate and mobilize their audience to take to the street, which is what actually happened with the launch of demonstrations in regions and cities in Iraq.

Political leaders warned of fears that the rejectionist attitudes would take another path, given that the parties objecting to the election results had money and weapons and could worsen the situation and ignite a civil war in Iraq.

The results of the parliamentary elections resulted in the Sadrist bloc, led by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, winning more than 70 seats, which qualifies him to form the federal government in alliance with winning political forces from the Kurds and Sunnis, and this aroused the resentment of the Shiite parties opposed to Sadr.
