SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The speaker of the Iraqi parliament on Friday announced his support to hold an early election as the Shiite coordination framework supported it by conditions.   

Iraqi parliamentary speaker Muhammed al-Halbousi on his Twitter account in response to Shia Cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s call to hold another early election as his supporter continue to sit-in in the Iraqi parliament said, “The Iraqi council of representatives represents the people, and those people that rallied are part of its component”.

“The will of the people cannot be neglected,” he said.

“We support steps toward an early election in a specific time frame with the agreement through the path of democracy and understanding that suitable with top national interests” he added.

Since late Thursday parties started to answer Sadr’s call regarding holding another early election after he rejected all calls for dialogue and urged his followers to continue the so-called peaceful revolution on Wednesday, and calling for another early election and the dissolution of the current parliament.

The Shiite coordination framework on Thursday said it supports Sadr’s call to hold another early election but by conditions.
