The largest bloc is now called the Reform and Reconstruction Bloc. That bloc contains reportedly 180 members at least, which is enough to achieve the 165 seat threshold for a quorum if they all show up. However, due to the Iraqi Federal Court not yet declaring Reform and Reconstruction as the largest bloc, and lacking the support of the two large Kurdish blocs, they are left with a very thin, 16-seat margin of error to gain a quorum. The clerical leader of Total Reform, Moqtada al-Sadr, has called for an emergency session of parliament between now and this coming Sunday (Sept 9th) for the election of deputies.
