Sadr urges judiciary to dissolve parliament by end of next week
After withdrawing his lawmakers from parliament in June, the leader of the Sadrist movement called for early elections and unspecified constitutional changes.
The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada Al-Sadr, called on the country's judiciary to dissolve parliament by end of next week.
He also called for early elections and unspecified constitutional changes.
Furthermore, Al-Sadr stated that the judiciary "must dissolve parliament by the end of next week... if not, the revolutionaries will take another stance."
This is not the first time that Al-Sadr calls for such changes, as he recently called for the dissolution of parliament and early elections.
On its account, the Iraqi Coordination Framework had said, on Thursday, that they were conditionally open to Sadr's call for new elections.
By the end of last month, Al-Sadr commanded thousands of supporters to storm and occupy parliament, preventing the formation of a government nearly ten months after the elections, in protest of the Coordination Framework's nomination for Prime Minister.
It is noteworthy that the Sadrist movement's bloc in the Iraqi parliament resigned from parliament on June 12, in a move that the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada Al-Sadr, considered "a sacrifice for the sake of the homeland and the people to rid them of an unknown fate."
