Who will be the new Iraqi Prime Minister? An inter-Shia agreement.

By Elijah J Magnier:

Iraq is observing an unexpected positive outcome following Sayed Moqtada al-Sadr’s decision to lower his expectations. Sayed Moqtada has agreed with the Shia political parties on a road map to increase the success possibility of the political process, and in particular, the first Parliamentary meeting expected this Sunday, the 9th of January. The Parliament elected members are expected to swear their oath and take their function to vote to elect the Speaker and his vice, if possible, on the first meeting.

Sayed Moqtada al-Sadr sent a list of 12 demands to the Shia groups to discuss and respond so as to reach an agreement where all the Shia parties willing to take part in the government go to the parliament united. All groups agreed that Sayed Moqtada would be declared as the one holding the majority of the votes (73 MP seats) and his capacity to unite all the other Shia groups ahead of the Sunni and the Kurds.
