The violence that broke out after the leader of the Sadr Group, Muqtada Sadr, quit politics in Iraq, ended when Sadr called his supporters to withdraw from the sheltered Green Zone in the capital Baghdad.
After the supporters of Sadr withdrew from the region, the supporters of the Coordination Group, which gathered under the roof of all Shiite parties except Sadr, also ended the sit-ins they started outside the Green Zone and withdrew from the region.
REQUEST FROM THE COORDINATION GROUP TO ACCELERATE THE GOVERNMENT FORMATION PROCESS
The Coordination Group demanded that the process of forming a government be accelerated after the violence erupted in the country. In the written statement made by the Coordination Group, it was emphasized that the process of forming a government should be accelerated in order not to repeat the events in the country. Calling on the political parties to work, the Coordination Group asked the Iraqi Parliament and other constitutional institutions to return to work.
NATIONAL RECONCILIATION CONDITION FOR EARLY ELECTION
President Berhem Salih, on the other hand, asked the executives of the Coordination Group to contact Sadr Group leader Muqtada Sadr in order to establish a national dialogue for holding early elections and stated that he believed that holding early elections would be a solution to the political crisis in the country if national consensus was achieved.
LIFE LOSS RISE TO 30
After Sadr announced his retirement from politics yesterday, his supporters entered the Green Zone and stormed the Presidential Palace. An Iraqi medical source reported that 30 people were killed and 700 injured, including 110 security guards, in clashes in and around the Green Zone.
