The First Elections of Iraq After the Defeat of ISIS and the First Electronic Election; Introducing Iraqi Coalitions.
Islamic World News Analysis Group: After many conflicts about the result of the Iraqi parliamentary election, the election committee of Iraq, postpone the official announcement on final results to Thursday or Friday.
According to the unofficial results, “The Alliance of Revolutionaries for Reform” (Sairoon) with the leadership of Muqtada Sadr gained 55 seats, “The Victory Alliance” (Al-Nasr) with the leadership of Haider al-Abadi gained 51 seats, “The Fatah Alliance” with the leadership of Hadi Al-Amiri gained 50 seats.
Meanwhile in some cities, specially Kirkuk and the three provinces of Iraqi Kurdistan, the protests about the results and election manipulation continue.
After the announcment of 91% of election results and achieving first place in election by “The Alliance of Revolutionaries for Reform” (Sairoon), Muqtada Sadr in his twitter showed his cabinet choices and the way he wants to form his administration.
In his tweet, Sadr announced:
We “The Alliance of Revolutionaries for Reform” will act with “Wisdom” (Hikma), “Nationalism” (alwatanyah) and “The Will of The Electorate” (tajmae ‘iiradat alaintikhabii), and to create a “New Generation” we try and expect to see the “Change Movement” towards “Reforms”, and it is our “Decision” to create an iraq so that we raise the “Flags” of “Victory”, and Baghdad (our “identity”) is our capital, and our movement will be “Democratic” and we will form a “Technocratic Government” without “Partisanism”.
After this tweet, Nechirvan Barzani and Masoud Barzani —which because of the high tensions of this election, their absence in this election were overlooked — were the first ones to call and congratulate the alliance of revolutionaries for reform’s victory to Muqtada Sadr.
Because of very close difference in number of gained seats by the victorious political parties and coalitions, and the necessity to create a big coalition of different parties in order to ensure the formation of a bigger parliamentary group, the idea of forming such a coalition is hard and complicated.
The possible scenarios by some of the sources, about which of these coalitions will form the cabinet :
1. The state of law coalition, along with Fatah alliance and victory alliance.
2. The alliance of revolutionaries for reform, along with victory alliance, Fatah alliance and the national wisdom movement.
3. The alliance of revolutionaries for reform, along with Fatah alliance and the national wisdom movement.
4. The alliance of revolutionaries for reform, along with victory alliance and the national wisdom movement.
