ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The alliance between Sairoon and Hashd al-Shaabi’s al-Fatih will prevent the country from serious threats, the Iraqi Communist Party, part of the Muqtada al-Sadr-led Sairoon Coalition, claimed on Wednesday.
The Communist Party expressed in a statement Sairoon’s commitment for reform and change despite its alliance with the Iranian-backed Fatih in efforts to create the largest parliamentary bloc to form the next Iraqi government.
The alliance with Fatih was announced to help prevent the country from being exposed to serious dangers that would intensify conflicts across Iraq, the statement said, warning this is where some parties are trying to drag the country.
The Communist Party accused some Iraqi political parties, without naming them, of resorting to measures that would endanger the country in an attempt to prevent conditions for a smooth and peaceful transition of power.
On Tuesday, Sairoon, winner of Iraq’s May 12 parliamentary elections, and Iranian-backed Hashd al-Shaabi’s al-Fatih Coalition led by Hadi al-Amiri reached an agreement to create the largest alliance in the next Iraqi Parliament.
Speaking to the press following his meeting with Amiri, Sadr said the coalition with Fatih is within the national framework and will maintain the tripartite alliance, referring to Sairoon’s partnership with al-Hikma and the National Alliance, led by Ammar al-Hakim and Iraqi Vice-President Ayad Allawi respectively.
On June 8, Sadr, Allawi, and Hakim met and signed an initial agreement outlining the core principles of upholding the unity of Iraq, consolidation of democracy and freedoms, and a commitment to the Constitution.
