Yesterday, Monday, the head of the State of Law coalition in Iraq, Nuri al-Maliki, refused to invite the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to dissolve the Iraqi parliament, and to hold early elections.
Nuri al-Maliki said, in his statements, that he “rejects the calls until the current parliament returns to meeting normally,” according to Baghdad Today Agency.
“Iraq is a country of components, and no will can be imposed on it except by the will of the entire people and through its constitutional institutions represented by the elected parliament,” he added.
Last Wednesday, the leader of the Sadrist movement in Iraq, Muqtada al-Sadr, called for the current parliament to be dissolved and early elections to be held.
And he refused to enter into the dialogue that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi called for to resolve the political dispute over the formation of the new government.
Al-Sadr said in a televised speech: “What is happening in the revolution is not a struggle for power.”
Adding that he has not yet decided to contest the next elections in the country.
Meanwhile, the coordination framework in Iraq announced its support for any constitutional path to address political crises and achieve the interests of the people, including early elections after achieving national consensus and providing a safe environment.
The Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi, also expressed his support for the call of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to dissolve parliament and hold early elections.
The demonstrators supporting the Sadrist movement organized protests inside the Green Zone in Baghdad, in protest against the nomination of the “Coordination Framework” coalition, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani for the position of prime minister.
