The return of negotiations between the Sadrist movement and the coordination framework is imminent Saturday 15 January 2022 222 Baghdad: Muhammad Al-Ansari Yesterday, Friday, political parties revealed the imminent return of negotiation and dialogue between the Sadrist movement and the coordination framework, at a time when the State of Law coalition refused to unilaterally form a government and exclude the other, indicating that this is inconsistent with the government of the national majority. The leader in the coordination framework, Saad Al-Saadi, said: "There is no rupture between the coordination framework and the Sadrist movement, and for this reason channels of dialogue are present and open between the two parties, and we expect the return of negotiation and dialogue with the Sadrist movement regarding the file of forming the new Iraqi government, during the next few days." He added that "the formation of the government, with regard to naming and choosing the prime minister or cabinet, there is a political consensus that this matter should be by consensus and agreement between all political parties, especially Shiites - Shiites." In this context, a member of the State of Law coalition, Wael Al-Rikabi, considered that the singularity of any of the Shiite parties, whether the Sadrist movement or the coordination framework, does not achieve the meaning of the national majority. He said in a press interview: "The concept of the political majority in democratic action is that the party that obtains the largest number of votes and can form a large bloc in Parliament according to the law, will be responsible for forming the government and choosing the three presidencies, and this is what was demanded by the State of Law coalition in previous sessions, but this demand was rejected on the pretext that Iraq is a country of components.” He added that "what is happening in Iraq today regarding the demand to form a majority government is in fact a consensus, where the Kurds have the presidency, the Sunnis the parliament and the Shiites the prime minister." He pointed out that "the concept of the majority has become, according to the Iraqi political custom, a national partnership, and since the prime ministership will go to the Shiite component, it is not in the interest of any party that there be a split within the component and the singling out of the framework or the current at the expense of the other in forming the government because it will lead to catastrophic results."
