Sadr movement focuses on election change in meeting with Gorran

A Sadr delegation headed by Muqtada al-Sadr’s nephew, Ahmed Sadr, visited Gorran party’s main headquarters in the city of Sulaimani, where the visiting group stressed its desire to correct the political process in Iraq, while Gorran indicated it was not willing to allow its votes “to be sold.” “Muqtada al-Sadr has two clear projects which are about post Mosul liberation and reforms in the elections,” said Shekh Sabah Saadi, the Sadr delegation spokesperson at a joint press conference after the meeting. “They are intended to correct the establishments and are for the sake of the political process which is based on a false principle.

We should rectify this, ourselves.

We don’t have any other projects outside these.” Gorran didn’t announce any commitment to align itself with Sadr.

Kawa Muhammed, head of Gorran’s faction in the Iraqi parliament, stood with Saadi after the meeting for the press conference.
