SULAIMANI — The leader of the Sadrist Movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, has called on the federal court to dissolve the Iraqi parliament at the end of next week.

Sadr made his demand over Twitter on Wednesday (August 10) and stated his call to withdraw parliament comes following a number of constitutional violations in the period set to elect the three presidencies.

He also declared the dissolution of parliament does not require a session of parliament.

He affirmed he has high hopes for the federal court despite all the security and political pressure on the judiciary.

He has also asked the president's judiciary to set a date for early elections to the Iraqi parliament.

Iraq’s parliamentary election was held on October 2021, but the political parties have failed to form a new government to this day.
