Barzanis headquarters - The relationship with Al-Sadr is solid and the lack of political communication came out of respect for the month of RamadanShafaq News/ On Friday, Barzani’s headquarters refuted the allegations that the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, did not respond to the call of Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani.

The headquarters stated in a statement received by Shafaq News Agency/ that “some Iraqi and Kurdish media circulated incorrect news claiming that Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr does not respond to President Barzani’s calls.”

The statement added; “To clarify the truth for public opinion in Iraq and Kurdistan, we affirm that this issue is baseless, and it is far from the truth of the great respect, deep trust and strong relationship between President Barzani and Muqtada al-Sadr.” He pointed out that “those who spread such rumors aim to cover up their failures and failures in the political process,” noting that “some took advantage of the lack of political communication in appreciation of the blessed month of Ramadan and fabricated these fabricated news.”

Yesterday, Thursday, the Sadrist movement denied holding political meetings with the coordination framework related to the government formation, stressing its adherence to its tripartite alliance with the Democratic Party and Sovereignty.

This came in a joint statement by Hassan Al-Adhari, head of the Sadrist bloc in the Iraqi parliament, and Ahmed Al-Mutairi, head of the Sadrist movement’s political body.

The statement stated, “Some media outlets circulated statements and leaks from some leaders of the coordination framework that the twenty-eighth day of Ramadan will be a breakthrough and an agreement will be reached between the Sadrist movement.”

the coordinating framework regarding the formation of the next government; To respond to these “lies” we say:

First: The purpose of these continuous lies is to destabilize the Triple Alliance (to save the homeland); and tell them; It is a solid alliance that will not be shaken by such nonsense and allegations, and we call on them not to repeat it.

Second: Since Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr announced the deadline for the month of Ramadan and beyond, and until this moment, there have been no political understandings or meetings between us and the coordinating framework. We still say the government of the national majority regarding the formation of the next government.

Since the Iraqi Council of Representatives held its first sessions on the ninth of last January, headed by President Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, the crisis of naming the largest bloc has emerged that has the exclusive right to choose the prime minister after being assigned by the President of the Republic, who must be elected by the Council, which is What has not been achieved so far.

The coordination framework insists on defining the identity of the largest parliamentary bloc, which must be “Shiite” because the prime minister is entitled to the Shiites, while the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr refuses to engage in an alliance with the framework forces combined and adheres to excluding the leader of the State of Law coalition Nuri al-Maliki and his bloc from any alliance .

On the other hand, there is a dispute between the two poles of Kurdish politics, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, which sees the position of the President of the Republic as a “Kurdish entitlement, not a partisan”, while the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan asserts that this position is from its “share”, as was the political custom.

The scene became more complicated after al-Sadr announced earlier this month his withdrawal and the Sadrist bloc from negotiations to form a government and choose its president, and threw the ball into the court of the coordination framework and gave him 40 days to complete this task.
