Shafaq News / The Federal Supreme Court dismissed the complaint filed by the Coordination Framework against the candidature of Rebar Ahmed.
MP of the Framework, A'liyah Nassif, had previously submitted a complaint against the President and the Parliament Presidium, requesting to dismiss the candidature of Rebar Ahmed.
Earlier today, Iraq's highest court also dismissed a complaint filed by lawyer Shehab al-Naimi challenging the presidential candidates roster.
Yesterday, the trilateral alliance among the Sadrist bloc headed by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, Masoud Barzani's the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) faction, and the Sunni al-Siyada (Sovereignty) Alliance headed by Khamis al-Khanjar announced a new pact titled "Rescue Alliance" and unveiled their nominations for the presidency and premiership.
In a live press conference aired by Iraq's state television, the alliance nominated Reber Ahmed, a Kurd from the KDP for the Iraqi presidency, and nominated Iraq's current ambassador to the United Kingdom, Mohammad Jaafar al-Sadr for the position of prime minister. The latter is al-Sadr's cousin and son of the revered Shiite leader Sayyid Mohammad Baqir al-Sadr.
Muqtada al-Sadr later on described in a tweet the alliance as "the largest bloc" and a "milestone towards forming a national majority government without delay".
According to Iraq's constitution, a parliamentary bloc with the biggest number of lawmakers is entitled to name a prime minister, who has the most powers within the country's governing system.
