(ANSAMed) – BEIRUT, DECEMBER 02 – Iraqi populist leader Moqtada Sadr, formally declared the winner of the elections on 10 October, has launched a series of meetings with the leaders of the pro-Iranian armed parties, considered the big losers of the electoral consultations, to find an agreement on the formation of the next government.

This was reported by the Iraqi media citing joint statements from the Sadrist current, which won 73 out of 329 total in parliament, and the coordination committee of pro-Tehran armed groups, which instead lost dozens of seats compared to the previous elections in 2018 .

The parties agreed to indicate “in consensual form” the name of the next prime minister and to outline the division of ministerial seats following the same type of “consensus”.

Iraqi civil society exponents and analysts point out that a possible agreement between the winners and losers of the elections on October 10 – marked by a very low turnout – would effectively invalidate the signal of change expressed by the voters.

These, continue the analyzes that have appeared in the media in Baghdad in recent days, have resoundingly rejected the work of the pro-Iranian armed militias, promoting not only the Sadrists but also emerging groups of civil society (such as the Imtidad movement, 9 seats) , which emerged in the light of the anti-government protests that erupted in Iraq in the autumn of 2019.
