In the last few metres.. the framework pushes al-Sadr to a compromise government that could possibly deport al-MalikiShafaq News/ The comprehensive coordinating framework of Shiite forces pushes, on Sunday, to persuade the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to form a compromise government, in the event of failure to enter a unified Shiite bloc that includes all parties.

Abadi’s house

Earlier this evening, the coordinating framework forces agreed, during a meeting held at the home of former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, and in the presence of all the leaders of the Shiite political forces, to intensify efforts to re-form the “Shiite House” in addition to naming a candidate for prime minister, who is acceptable to all parties. .

Settlement – Satisfaction

The meeting focused, according to a source in the coordination framework, who told Shafak News Agency, on two things. The first is “in the event that all Shiite forces merge into a unified bloc, after the intervention of intermediary parties that have weight in the Iraqi file, it will be agreed to nominate a prime minister candidate who is acceptable to all because of his successful experience.

But in the event that these parties do not succeed in their endeavor, and the fragmentation remains in control of the Shiite forces, the framework will have (the right of veto) over any candidate submitted by al-Sadr for the premiership,” according to the source.

decisive meeting

The source noted that “the decisive meeting between the framework forces and al-Sadr, it is hoped that it will be held in Baghdad in the coming hours,” noting that “in the worst case, al-Sadr will resort to forming a government of consent, which was discussed in the meeting, that is, some of the framework forces will join Al-Sadr’s government, most notably (Al-Fateh, Al-Nahj), and these will be given ministries to satisfy and preserve the Shiite identity of the government.

Nouri al-Maliki

He continued, “If al-Sadr insists on removing al-Maliki from the government, or any political alliance with him, the framework will acquiesce in this matter, but representatives of the state of law may participate in the government, or be entrusted with certain responsibilities, and the position of the Vice President of the Republic if it is activated. Al-Maliki will also be out of the race.”

Crowd and corruption

The meeting also discussed, according to the source, “the file of the popular mobilization and its inviolability or dilution, in addition to combating corruption, as well as the importance of achieving balance in the form and content of the government in proportion to the electoral process.”

negotiating committees

The meeting decided to activate the work of the negotiating committees between the coordination framework and the Sadrist bloc, to “discuss controversial issues and how to solve them diplomatically, provided that their meetings will be held tomorrow in Baghdad.”

The source added, “It is hoped that the proposals and solutions that these committees will put forward in the upcoming meeting between the framework forces and al-Sadr will be discussed, if things go towards calm.”

This coincides with the arrival of the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Ismail Qaani, on Sunday evening, to Iraq, and he made a visit to Najaf Governorate (180 km south of the capital, Baghdad).

Qaani made a round of visits that began with the shrine of Imam Ali in Najaf, after which he went to the Wadi al-Salam cemetery and visited the shrines of Muhammad Sadiq al-Sadr and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

Meanwhile, an informed source told Shafak News Agency, “Qaani’s visit to Iraq was aimed at holding meetings with Iraqi political forces to bring closer views on the file of forming the new Iraqi government.”

The source added, “These meetings aim to work on unifying positions within the Shiite political house, after the differences that erupted recently between the coordination framework and the Sadrist movement.”
