Shafaq News / A source close to the head of al-Fatah coalition, Hadi al-Ameri, denied reports that the formation of the State Administration Coalition will be announced tonight.
He added that the new step depends on the stance of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, and the possibility of reaching an agreement with him to prevent any potential escalation.
The source noted that al-Ameri has nothing to do with such "unofficial" announcements made by a member of the Coordination Framework.
Reliable political sources revealed that the head of al-Siyada coalition, Khamis al-Khanjar, phone-called the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr.
Sources told Shafaq News agency that the two parties discussed the option of al-Siyada joining the State Administration Coalition expected to be formed soon, noting that al-Khanjar confirmed to al-Sadr that this decision does not mean taking an opposing stance from the movement.
Al-Khanjar confirmed that if he takes this step, his coalition will put all effort to achieve the Sadrist movement's demands, including dissolving the Parliament and holding an early election.
The two parties agreed on holding a meeting soon with a delegation from the Kurdistan Democratic Party, to enhance coordination and cooperation.
