The coordinating framework sets a time limit soon for the formation of the Iraqi governmentShafaq News/ The coordination framework affirmed, on Wednesday, its insistence on proceeding with the formation of the new federal government before the end of this October, while continuing the dialogue with the Iraqi political forces in this field.

Representative of the framework, Gharib Askar, told Shafaq News Agency, “The coordination framework continues with dialogue with the political forces to form the new government,” noting that “the coming days will witness a radical solution by sitting at the dialogue table to resolve the political crisis.”

He added that “Parliament will resume its sessions next week, but the session for electing the President of the Republic is not scheduled,” noting that “the new government will be formed before the end of this month.”

The political scene in Iraq has been going through a dangerous turn since supporters of the Sadrist movement led by prominent Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr stormed the parliament building in the fortified Green Zone in central Baghdad, and staged a sit-in in protest against Al-Sudani’s nomination for the position of head of the next federal government.

The Sadrist bloc had obtained the highest votes in the early legislative elections that took place in October of 2021, but the efforts of the leader of the current failed to form the new federal government due to the Shiite coordination framework standing in its way by obtaining a fatwa from the Federal Court with the so-called blocking third in a contract The session for electing the President of the Republic, which paves the way for naming the Prime Minister.

The three-way alliance between the Kurdistan Democratic Party led by Masoud Barzani, the Sovereignty Alliance headed by Khamis al-Khanjar, and the Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr was broken following the resignation of the Sadrist bloc’s deputies, and the movement’s withdrawal from the political process by order of al-Sadr.

The political scene is living in a crisis situation and a dead end unprecedented in the history of Iraq, as more than a full year has passed since the early elections without being able to form a new government in the country, and the caretaker government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi remains.

On the tenth of last October, Iraq held early legislative elections to get out of a political crisis that swept the country after large demonstrations in the central and southern regions in 2019 in protest against the widespread unemployment in society, the spread of financial and administrative corruption in government departments and institutions, and the deteriorating reality The service and the livelihood, which prompted the former prime minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, to resign under popular pressure.

As soon as the preliminary results of the elections were announced, the voices of political forces and actors rose in their rejection of losing many seats, accusing them of major fraud in the ballot, which was denied by the executive and judicial authorities, at a time when the United Nations and international organizations praised the integrity of the electoral process.
