Parties meeting with Kadhimi postponed to indefinite time – source

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraqi Parties meeting that was scheduled to take place on Thursday with the caretaker prime minister was postponed to an indefinite time, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. 

Iraqi parties were scheduled to meet with the caretaker Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi on Thursday in Baghdad, however, a source said that the meeting has been postponed to an indefinite time.

Esta Media Network has learned, that the meeting was aimed to launch a national dialogue and bring parties together to relieve the political tension that was triggered by a prolonged protest by the supporters of powerful Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, paralyzing Iraq’s parliament and recently the judicial authority.

Iraqi parties met in Baghdad last week after caretaker Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi called a meeting of senior political leaders and party representatives to address the problems and find a way out of the deadlock over forming a new government, worrying that the current stand-off could turn violent — but al-Sadr’s party did not attend.

Iraq’s political impasse, now in its tenth month, is the longest in the country since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion reset the political order, the impasse over government formation was generated by a deep dispute mainly between Sadr and his rival Shiite political parties after an election since October.
