Moqtada al-Sadr poised for victory in Iraqi election

Moqtada al-Sadr poised for victory in Iraqi election”

The race to become Iraq's next prime minister appears wide open as Muqtada al Sadr's alliance looked to be in the lead after the first elections since the defeat of Daesh.

Moreover, Qasem Mohebali, former director-general of political affairs of the Middle East in Iran's Foreign Ministry, told the moderate Entekhab news site on May 15, "Perhaps the reason for [Sairoon] Alliance's attraction for the Iraqi people was Muqtada al-Sadr's nationalist slogans like 'Arab Iraq.' On the other hand, the corruption of the previous governments was also impactful in turning people away [from the other groups]".

Al-Sadr led the Mahdi army in the early years of the war on terror, using IEDs and machine guns to kill Western forces, O'Neill said.

Whereas lengthy railing towards the U.S., the populist firebrand has additionally distanced himself from its key rival Iran, drawing nearer to regional Sunni powerhouse Saudi Arabia. The elections were held Saturday, with low turnout.

"If we want to change things then the prime minister needs to come from Marching Towards Reform", said Salah Jamal, 24.

Al-Sadr commands his own militia that fought against IS militants, but he has disavowed any Iranian and USA influence in Iraq, and he has called for the full withdrawal of US troops.

But after 14 years, more than $1 trillion, millions of Iraqi dead and thousands of USA troops killed and maimed, the US now has less influence over Iraq than it had while former Central Intelligence Agency operative Saddam Hussein was in power.

Despite the election setback, Abadi might still be granted a second term in office by parliament and on Monday he called on all political blocs to respect the results and suggested he was willing to work with Sadr to form a government.

Subsequent within the working was the Conquest Alliance, made up of ex-fighters from primarily Iran-backed paramilitary models that battled IS, with outcomes placing them forward in 4 provinces and second in eight others.

The votes in the Kurdish provinces of Dohuk and Kirkuk are still to be counted, but their results will not affect al-Sadr's victory. By the end of the announcement, al-Sadr's list had the highest popular vote, followed by al-Amiri's. Dozens of alliances ran for office, and months of negotiations are expected before any one alliance can pull together the 165 required seats.
