Iraq elections: Who is Muqtada al-Sadr, who has influence and intertwined relations?
October 13, 2021
The preliminary results published by the High Electoral Commission in Iraq showed that the Sadrist movement, led by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, was at the forefront.
The Sadrists, if the result is confirmed, will be in a position to put pressure on the political forces, while experts believe that the fragmentation of parliament seats will lead to the absence of a clear majority, which will force the blocs to negotiate alliances to name a new prime minister.
Prominent Shiite forces loyal to Iran condemned the “manipulation” of the results of the electoral process.
