Monday 13 June 2022 - 19:59

ISWNews Analysis Group: Mohammad al-Halbousi, the speaker of the Iraqi parliament agreed to the resignation of members of the Sadr faction.

The insufficient number of seats in the Sadr faction prevented it from easily forming a new Iraqi government. The same position prompted Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the Sadr faction, to ask Hassan al-Azari, head of the Sadr faction in the Iraqi parliament, to submit resignation of its PMs to the parliament’s presidium on June 11th. Sadr considered the resignation of the members of the Sadr faction as a sacrifice for the homeland and the nation.
Following the signing of the resignation request by members of the Sadr faction, Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammad al-Halbousi reluctantly agreed to the request of members of the Sadr faction.

The resignation of the representatives of the Sadr faction has provoked several reactions. Reacting to Muqtada al-Sadr’s decision, Massoud Barzani, the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, said that we respect Muqtada al-Sadr’s decision and will follow future developments.
Khamis al-Khanjar, the head of the al-Sayyada coalition, also praised Sadr’s decision in a conversation with him.

It seems that Muqtada al-Sadr considers the resignation of his current representatives and his position in the opposition to be better than participating in an agreement government.
