ERBIL — The pro-Iran Shia Coordination Framework has tasked Hadi al-Amiri to hold a meeting with Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in efforts to address the political disputes between the sides.
Pro-Iran Shia factions of the Coordination Framework earlier today held a meeting to discuss the growing political tensions in Baghdad and Sadr's latest message on Wednesday, in which he called for the dissolution of the parliament and holding an early elections.
The Coordination Framework, during Thursday's meeting, made several decisions, the main of which was to task Amiri, leader of the Fatih Alliance, to meet with Sadr on behalf of the framework to find a solution to the political crisis.
The Coordination Framework also decided to keep Mohammed Shia' al-Sudani as its only nominee for Iraq's prime minister. Al-Sudani has already been rejected by the Sadrist Movement.
Meanwhile, Abu Alaa al-Walaei, Secretary-General of Kata'ib Sayyid al-Shuhada Brigades, made it clear that they will not allow the extension of the incumbent Prime Minister, Mustafa al-Kadhimi, and he will not be nominated to lead the next government.
