Iraq - A political meeting sets Saturday as a tentative date for a session of granting confidence to the Sudanese governmentThe “State Administration” coalition , which brings together the main Iraqi political forces in the country, except for the Sadrist movement , revealed today, Tuesday, the procedures for forming the new government headed by Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani , indicating that he will call for a session of the Iraqi Parliament dedicated to a vote on granting confidence to the government next Saturday. .

Al-Sudani began the movement to form his government by conducting dialogues and negotiations with political blocs and parties, amid an emphasis on accelerating the process of forming a government in the near future, due to the great political support that Al-Sudani receives from all parties.

The coalition stated in a statement after its meeting, that “the State Administration coalition held its periodic meeting, which was devoted to discussing the formation of the government in the office of Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi, and to discuss the latest political developments in the country and the need to expedite the formation of the service government.”

The statement added, “The State Administration Coalition intends to invite the House of Representatives to hold a session next Saturday to vote on the government with all its members.”

For his part, a prominent leader in the Al-Fateh Alliance told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that “the parliament held a special session to vote on granting confidence to the government of Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani next Saturday, it is not certain, the session may be postponed for another day, until the moment Al-Sudani has not decided the matter of his cabinet.” (His formation), and his dialogues with the blocs and parties are still taking place without final agreements.

And he indicated that “the announcement by the State Administration coalition of the date of the session of granting confidence to the Sudanese government without a final agreement on its date, aims to test the pulse of the Sadrist movement, as it fears a reaction of the Sadrists in the street that may hinder the holding of the parliament session, and for this he announced it early so that he knows the intentions of the Sadrists. “.

He pointed out that “Al-Sudani has currently settled only 14 ministries with the political forces, and there are differences over other portfolios related to the candidates, as well as granting these portfolios to any bloc and party, and this matter may postpone the confidence-giving session, or prompt the Sudanese to present an incomplete ministerial cabinet. “.

And Iraqi political forces had presented the conditions required of the Sudanese government in exchange for a vote of confidence, stressing that they had informed the “ coordinating framework ” forces that they sought to be a partner in the decision, and not only in government positions.

On Saturday, the Sadrist Movement, led by Muqtada al-Sadr, attacked the efforts of the “coordinating framework” to form a “tested militia coalition” government, as he put it, again refusing to participate in it, and speaking of efforts to satisfy the movement by granting him positions in that government. This is the first position of the Sadrist movement regarding the efforts to form the new government, as it had specified its demands to dissolve parliament and hold new early elections.
