It is expected that the leaders of the framework, which includes the majority of Shiite forces, will discuss during the meeting the mechanisms of reunifying the Shiite house and reviving the meetings of bilateral committees with the Sadrist bloc, according to the source.

The source told Shafaq News Agency, “The coordinating framework forces may hold a meeting today at the house of Hadi Al-Amiri, head of the Al-Fateh Alliance, to arrange papers and propose more serious and in-depth treatments to take decisions that are in the interest of the country’s unity, in addition to uniting the Shiite house and decision-making.”

The source pointed out that “the directions of the framework after the state decision issued by the Federal Court, which provides for a temporary suspension of the work of the Presidency of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, is to put pressure on the Sadrist bloc to form a unified Shiite bloc inside and outside Parliament, meaning that there should be a unified centralization of the Shiite decision.”

He added, “The leaders of the framework will also discuss in their meeting, reactivating the work of the committees emanating from the framework to continue their meetings with their counterpart in the Sadrist bloc to reach unified visions that guarantee the formation of the unified Shiite bloc.”

The source added, “All proposals for solutions to restore the Shiite house are on the table for discussion, and the meeting may lead to outcomes that determine the form of the relationship or communication with the Sadrist bloc.”

And on Thursday, the Iraqi Federal Court, which is the highest judicial authority in the country, decided to temporarily suspend the work of the Parliament’s Presidency until two lawsuits regarding the legitimacy of the first session of Parliament were filed by Mahmoud al-Mashhadan and Basem Khashan.

During the first session, Parliament elected Muhammad al-Halbousi as Speaker of the Council for a second term, the leader of the Sadrist movement, Hakim al-Zamili as first deputy, and KDP representative, Shakhwan Abdullah, as second deputy.

The Sadrist bloc topped the October 10 elections, with 73 seats, followed by the Progress Alliance with 37, the State of Law coalition with 33, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party with 31.

For his part, the representative of the state of law, Thaer Mikheib, told Shafak News Agency, “The coordinating framework strives to unify the Shiite house, and this remains subject to the convictions of the leaders who control the political movement, and usually the last hours of everything related to the political process of successive governments are decisive in taking important decisions, and we hope That the poles of the coordinating framework reach an understanding with the Sadrist bloc that leads to the formation of the unified Shiite bloc.”

He added, “It is hoped that an agreement will be reached between the framework and al-Sadr that will push the political process that will not bear new crises.”

“We hope that the Federal Court will expedite the issuance of its final decision regarding the appeals submitted regarding the first session of Parliament and the events that took place in it,” he said.

And he added, “We were informed of the existence of a meeting of the leaders of the coordination framework, and we hope that if they hold their meeting today, the participants will come out with effective solutions that will succeed in bringing together the Shiite house to form a national majority government.”
