Tishwash:  Al-Sadr: Reform will defeat corruption in Iraq

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, said on Monday that reform will defeat corruption in Iraq.

Al-Sadr said in a tweet on his Twitter account: “Oh God, accept our current vigil in the Green Zone with you. It is with you, not with your corrupt and subservient enemy.”

He added, “Just as blood triumphed over the sword in kindness, so will reform triumph over corruption in our beloved Iraq.”

Below is the text of the tweet:

In the name of the Lord of Hussein

Peace be upon you, O master of the martyrs, peace be upon you and the rebellious ones

May God magnify our reward and your reward with the affliction of Imam Hussein, my soul to him. Rather, God magnified the reward of the Messenger, and God magnified the reward of the Virgin, and God magnified the reward of God.

The wages of a virgin’s husband.  My condolences go to the station of Mawlana, the owner of the age and time. Your understanding is with you, not from your enemy from the corrupt and dependent  And as victory is blood over the sword in the throat, so reform will triumph in science

Here, I do not say: I wish we were with you, but I say: Oh God, accept our current protest stance in the Green Zone with you.

Corruption in our beloved Iraq

Peace be upon Imam Hussain, and curse be upon those who say, and peace be upon one of the values, reform, and no consolation, the security of blood corruption

Surah Muharram New

CandyKisses:  Al-Fatah: We are not against the re-election — The decision to dissolve the Parliament is the first condition

Baghdad – NAS

Rafik al-Salhi, a member of the Fatah alliance that is part of the coordination framework, said on Monday that his alliance is not against the re-election, while noting that the decision to dissolve parliament is the first requirement in this framework.    

In a statement to the official newspaper followed by NAS (August 8, 2022), the MP pointed out that “there are points to work on the holding of elections; first it decides to dissolve the parliament in accordance with the constitutional legal procedures, and to take place under an authentic government and not a caretaker government.”

“We are not against the re-election, we are the first to challenge its fairness and manipulate the results,” he said.

He asked: “Who will bear the high financial costs spent for the 2021 elections, which may not be the last early according to the pressure of some blocs or their moods,” and added that “the coordination framework is adhering to its candidate Mohammed Shia al-Sudani and holding a session and forming a consensus government that takes into account the electoral entitlements even for the blocs that withdrew because they represent a mass base.”

“The president of the republic must be elected and the prime minister assigned in order for the political process to proceed with any national decisions,” he said.

Earlier, the coordination framework announced its position on the demand of Sadrist leader Moqtada al-Sadr to dissolve parliament and hold early elections.

A statement of the framework received by “Nass”, a copy of which (August 4, 2022), said that it “confirms its support for any constitutional path to address political crises and achieve the interests of the people, including early elections after achieving national consensus around them and providing a safe atmosphere for their conduct, and preceded by all this work to respect the constitutional institutions and not to disrupt their work,” stressing in the same regard that “our ceiling remains the law, the constitution and the interest of the people.”
