Saairun-Victory alliance will form Iraq’s new government: Tarfi

Iraqi lawmaker with National Wisdom Movement (NWM), Habib al-Tarfi said on Tuesday that the Saairun-Victory alliance is considered to be a step in the right direction.

Tarfi added that this alliance, which includes others parties, will form the parliament’s largest bloc that is responsible for forming the new Iraqi government.

On Saturday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and Sadrist Movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr announced that their political blocs, which came in third and first place in May 12 parliamentary election respectively, would form an alliance.

The alliance between Abadi’s third-placed Victory Alliance and Sadr’s Saairun, which won the most number of seats during the parliamentary elections, would cross sectarian and ethnic divisions. Source
