Al-Sadr said in a tweet, “Thanks to God and His grace and the efforts of the heroic sit-ins, positive responses came with regard to (dissolving Parliament) and a popular and clan response, from academics, civil society institutions, and preachers of the Husseini pulpit, and even from some scholars of the honorable seminary and from some Kurdish, Sunni and even Shiite political leaders as well. “.

Al-Sadr added, “After I thank them, I invite them to take a serious stand to save Iraq from the tusks of corruption and dependency, and to correct the course of the political process that harmed the people and the country.”

Al-Sadr continued, “So come to a common word and to serious and real actions, and let us stay away from meager dialogues. Iraq needs actions, not words.”

Al-Sadr Will Not Be Satisfied With The Early Elections And The Coordination Is Concerned About The Mechanisms Of Change

Posted On2022-08-07 By Sotaliraq      Baghdad / Tamim Al-Hassan    The second worst choice for holding elections is at this time, according to the viewpoint of the coordination framework, which appears as the “evil group” in its struggle with the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr.

The Shiite forces, which later formed the “framework”, reluctantly agreed during the October 2019 protests, to go to early parliamentary elections in which they lost dozens of seats.

The “coordinating annoyance” of the Sadrist movement’s leader Muqtada al-Sadr’s demand for “early elections” may seem easy in exchange for information about steps that precede the first procedure, represented by “radical changes.”

According to the information circulated, the recent televised speech of the leader of the Sadrist movement “was not clearly understood by everyone,” or that there are attempts to “distort the speech.”

The information, according to sources close to the Sadrist movement, confirms to Al-Mada that “Al-Sadr will not be satisfied with holding new elections without changing the political equation.”

In his televised speech, Al-Sadr said about his visions for the next stage: “Old faces, whatever their affiliation, will no longer exist.”

To reduce the fears of the Shiite forces, which described his supporters’ storming of Parliament last week as a “coup,” he added about the mechanism of change: “Through a peaceful revolutionary democratic process first and then an early electoral democratic process after the dissolution of the current parliament.”

The “Attrimons” dealt with the words of the leader of the Sadrist movement about “early elections” and “dissolving parliament” as if they had found a treasure after an arduous and anxious search about what al-Sadr wants from his latest movement?

And the “coordination” circles interpreted the last words of the leader of the movement as “a retreat from the radical change” he spoke before the last sermon.

And sources from within the “framework” who spoke to (Al-Mada) considered that “the Sadrist movement has burned all its vehicles, and it has no choice but to call for early elections.”

According to those sources, the current “did not want to hold early elections on the basis that they would reproduce the same problem of the blocking third and opposing the majority government project.”

Therefore, the “Coordination Committee” began to deal with the last speech after realizing the “split scandal” that two of the bloc’s leaders had ignited after Al-Sadr’s speech, in order to prepare for the dialogue.

In the outburst of reactions to “Al-Sadr’s speech”, Hadi Al-Amiri, the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance, rushed to support what the leader of the Sadrist movement had called for, before the “Coordination” came to grips with Al-Amiri’s drift.

The leader of Al-Fateh said in a statement: “We support holding the early elections called for by Muqtada Al-Sadr, especially since the previous elections were marred by many suspicions and objections.”

Defending his desire to meet the leader of the movement, he added, “This requires a comprehensive national dialogue in order to set a date, mechanisms and requirements for conducting them, and to provide appropriate climates for free, fair and transparent elections that restore citizen’s confidence in the political process.”

Al-Amiri had met at the time with the United Nations representative in Iraq, Jenin Plasschaert, and information was leaked about the “mediations” conducted by the latter to ensure a dialogue between the leader of Al-Fateh and “Al-Sadr.”

On the second day, Plasschaert visited the leader of the movement at his residence in Al-Hanana in the Najaf governorate, and described the meeting as “good.” After leaving Al-Sadr’s residence, she told reporters that she “discussed with Mr. Al-Sadr the importance of finding a solution to the political crisis.”

Prior to that, Haider al-Abadi, the leader of victory, had welcomed al-Sadr’s speech. He said in a statement, speaking about the current leader’s call for early elections, as: “It meets in many respects with our initiative to solve the crisis.”

He added, “I salute his steps and all the brothers for preserving blood and achieving reform,” while his partner in the coalition of state forces, Ammar al-Hakim, remained silent on the content of al-Sadr’s speech.

Changes in the positions of the “coordinator” took place after the Sadrists stormed the parliament, where the leader of the wisdom movement Ammar al-Hakim for the first time rose from his speech against the movement, at a time when “Amiri” committed to his friendship with “Al-Sadr.”

The leader of the current had called on Al-Amiri more than once to leave the “Coordination Committee”, the last of which was last week, before calling for a “radical change.”

[Before the situation developed, the coordinating framework met on Thursday at al-Hakim’s house in Baghdad, and stipulated early elections to vacate parliament.

The framework said in a statement after the meeting that it “supports any constitutional path to address crises, including early elections,” stipulating that: “After achieving national consensus around them and providing a safe environment for conducting them, all of this precedes work on respecting constitutional institutions and not disrupting their work.”

[size=45]The statement added: “Our roof remains the law, the constitution, and the interest of the people.”

The position of the “Coordination” was different two months ago, as “Al-Hakim” and Qais Al-Khazali, the leader of Asa’ib, had called at that time to hold early elections.

However, according to sources within the Coordination Committee, “Nuri al-Maliki, who controls the Shiite bloc, is one of the staunch opponents of the elections, especially at this time.”

The sources indicate that “some opinions within the framework say that he appears as an evil faction chasing after power because of the recent conflict with al-Sadr.”

Al-Maliki had said in response to Al-Sadr’s speech that: “Holding other early elections must be in accordance with the constitution and the ‘national consensus’.”

And he added in a tweet on “Twitter”: that these conditions prevent “a repetition of what happened in the previous elections.”

The total of 4 coalition seats in the 2018 elections, which now constitute the “framework”, collected about 140 seats, while all Shiites (except for the Sadrists) in the last elections got less than 90 seats.

The “frame” currently controls the parliament after it occupied the seats of the resigned Sadrists, and al-Sadr may thus be unable to make changes to the election law or dissolve parliament.

Despite the support of Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi for the speech of the leader of the movement, according to a statement issued by the latter, the steps to dissolve parliament are known in the constitution and require the vote of the majority of deputies.

Hence, the “frameworkers” are increasingly concerned about the mechanism that the leader of the Sadrist movement wants to use in the process of change, especially with the multiplication of hope for dialogue.

According to what was leaked of information, al-Sadr had refused Plasschaert’s mediation for dialogue with Hadi al-Amiri, who was again delegated by the coordinating framework for this purpose.

The leader of the movement said in his last televised speech, speaking of accepting dialogue: “There is no benefit from dialogue, especially after the people said their free, spontaneous word,” referring to the entry of his supporters into Parliament.

And the “Coordination Committee”‘s concern increased with the sudden appearance of al-Sadr in the morning near the residence of the Supreme Leader Ali al-Sistani in Najaf.

Platforms close to the movement claimed that al-Sadr met al-Sistani, in a “scenario” similar to what happened in 2016, when the two met about 5 months after the first supporters of the movement stormed parliament.

On the other hand, Al-Attar claimed that Al-Sadr’s presence yesterday in the house of the supreme authority is to attend an annual Husseini council held by “Sistani,” which does not require that there be a meeting with the latter, at a time when no other politician appeared in the supposed council.

So far, no footage has been broadcast – as is customary in any announced visit to the reference – between the leader of the movement and “Sistani”.

Al-Sadr had also aroused the concern of his opponents by launching a similar “change plan” that he revealed in his last speech in conjunction with calls from the leaders of the October protests to express the latter’s opinion “the seriousness of change” and “accounting the corrupt from his current” while preparing for a demonstration in Baghdad.

Before the demonstration, which took place on Friday in Al-Nusour Square, west of Baghdad, the leader of the movement had clarified his demands and vowed to hold all those involved in corruption accountable, including his affiliates.

Then, on the second day of his televised speech, the leader of the movement returned to approach the popular crowd, where he said in a tweet on Friday, speaking of his disagreement with the “framework,” that this does not mean: “Our beloved brothers in the popular crowd are affiliated with one of those two sides.’

He added: “The Mujahideen in the Popular Mobilization are closer to our (Al-Sadr’s) opinions and adoptions.”

Hundreds of al-Sadr’s supporters had gathered on Friday to perform a mass prayer in the celebrations square inside the Green Zone, despite the high temperatures.  LINK
