Sumerian special 2022-05-25 Source: Sumerian 635 views The coordinating framework confirms: Going towards forming a government in opposition to al-Sadr is very difficult.
Twenty days is the period of time remaining until the end of al-Sadr’s deadline for the political forces… The scene, after ten days of the deadline, is still suffering from stagnation of negotiations and difficulty in the negotiations, and there are no indications about the form of the government, whether it is a majority or a consensual one
Ten days have passed since al-Sadr’s deadline set for thirty days, and the political forces are in clear stagnation and there are no signs of a consensual government, which means that the representatives of the blocking third and others will not be able to reach a consensus or a solution without agreement with the Sadrist bloc, and the latter, according to deputies, is also unable to form a majority patriotism
The road towards forming a consensual government is unpaved in front of most political forces. There is a clear rejection by al-Sadr of the form of such governments. It seems that neither the framework nor the allies to save the homeland are able to draw a political map in exchange for Sadrist opposition, as described by MPs LINK

Al-Sadr Is Preparing To Lead A Resounding Demonstration Similar To The October Uprising
Posted On2022-05-25 By Sotaliraq Baghdad / Murad Hussein Since the announcement of the results of the parliamentary elections that took place on October 10 of last year, the political process has witnessed a political blockage as a result of the tripartite alliance not achieving a comfortable majority to form the government, and the same is the case with the coordinating framework forces.
he current crisis, the latest of which is the initiative of the independent representatives, has not led to positive results so far.
The Sadrist movement and its leader Muqtada al-Sadr are waiting for some of the framework forces to join his alliance (save a homeland) from those who are well thought of, according to him, or the Democratic Party has reached an understanding with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and included it in the Triple Alliance camp. As for the coordination framework, it seeks to dismantle the tripartite alliance to form the government without the alliance. With al-Sadr, even the independent representatives became the new weighty egg and the only solution party.
With the political movements and initiatives put forward, Al-Sadr broke his silence with a word directed to the coordination framework, which stated in its text, “If you do not fear God, then fear the wrath of the forgiving and the oppressed. And a thousand no.” Observers interpreted his speech as an implicit indication of the launch of new demonstrations that may occur in the coming days.
A “new tent” for Sadr in Baghdad
A leader in the Sadrist movement, who refused to reveal his name, confirmed in an interview with (Al-Mada), that “in the coming days there will be large demonstrations throughout the country,” noting that “it will be a new revolution similar to October (2019), but it will be resounding for all political forces.”
He added, “These demonstrations will start before al-Sadr goes to the street and put his tent in the capital, Baghdad, because there is a great popular resentment against the independent representatives who have been involved in political movements and parties.”
He explained, “The political money in winning independent representatives and buying their debts is what will push the street to these demonstrations,” accusing “the forces of the coordination framework of buying the debts of the independent representatives and winning them over to the blocking third.”
New and mighty October
Regarding the disintegration of the Triple Alliance and the fact that some of its forces went to the coordination framework for forming a government, the leader of the Sadrist movement, who refused to reveal his identity, asserts that “the Triple Alliance is based on data and pillars that cannot be changed, and it will remain coherent and will not go towards forming a government with other forces.”
And he continues, “The recent rapprochement between the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union will reflect positively on the tripartite alliance, and it may be the beginning of deciding the position of the President of the Republic and passing it through the House of Representatives.”
In turn, political analyst Ali Al-Baydar confirmed in an interview with Al-Mada that “the convergence of views between the Democratic Union and the Union is expected because there are great commonalities between the two parties, and this will lead to solving the president’s crisis.”
Al-Baydar explained, “The party that benefits from the rapprochement will be the tripartite alliance if it is invested correctly, as it has the numerical majority in the House of Representatives, and thus achieves the formation of the government,” noting that “the role of the coordination framework and the National Union in the event the government is formed by the tripartite coalition will be non-existent and weak.”
And he indicated, “The parties that existed during the October Revolution (2019) cannot be called independent,” noting that “the term independent has become used to refer to Shiite parties that are outside the Sadrist movement and the coordinating framework.”
He pointed out that “the demonstrations of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, which may start in the coming days, will not be supported by the masses, as it is a demand for private gains, and the Iraqi street is beginning to realize this.”
Al-Baydar noted that “a new October will spark from the central and southern governorates in a new way, and it will be overwhelming because the one that preceded it was just a test,” as he put it.
Anarchy fears” rear its head
Head of the Irtiqa Center for Research and Studies, Abbas Al-Ardawi, said in an interview with Al-Mada that “the demonstrations and protests demanding services and employment opportunities for graduates have not stopped, as they are present in all governorates.”
Al-Ardawi pointed out that “there is a movement among the parties that have power at the present time to create a kind of chaos by launching protests and demonstrations in the coming days to ensure their survival in power.”
He added, “These demonstrations are warned by the coordination framework, as they are prepared in advance, and seek to create a kind of chaos in the street to achieve narrow political gains.”
Regarding the independent representatives and the street’s resentment against them, Al-Ardawi stated that “the involvement of some independent deputies within the political parties and movements generated a kind of resentment and resentment against them by the Iraqi street.” LINK
