The Sadrist bloc participated in the parliamentary elections with more than 100 candidates who won, 74 of whom won. The Sadrist bloc seeks to form a strong majority government capable of implementing the national government program proposed by al-Sadr.

Al-Sadr and the Shiite coordination framework held two separate meetings; The first in Baghdad resulted in breaking the deadlock in the relationship between the coordinating framework forces and the leader of the Sadrist movement. The second was held in Al-Hanana, Sadr’s residence, with a delegation representing the framework led by Hadi al-Amiri and the membership of the leader of the Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq movement, Qais Khazali, as well as the official of the Popular Mobilization Authority.

The meeting did not come out with agreements between the two parties except for reconciliation between (Al-Sadr and Khazali) after a rupture that lasted for several years.

The framework sees the conditions of al-Sadr (merging the Popular Mobilization Forces with the security institutions), limiting arms to the state, forming a majority government, not a consensual government based on electoral merit, not party, as a deliberate impotence to force the framework to abandon their demands and accept the majority government.
