Shiitisch geestelijke Moqtada al-Sadr neemt verrassend de leiding in Iraakse verkiezingen

Graphic News

May 14, 2018 -- Wijdverspreide desillusie over de huidige politieke klasse in Irak heeft naar blijkt geholpen om de coalitie van de invloedrijke shiitische geestelijke Moqtada al-Sadr aan een koppositie te helpen in de nationale verkiezingen, die gekenmerkt werden door een recordlage opkomst.

Partial returns of the 2018 vote – the first since Iraq declared victory over the so-called Islamic State group – were announced late Sunday by the Iraqi electoral commission and put al-Sadr’s political alliance in the lead in four provinces, including Baghdad.

The election came as the country deals with the disenfranchisement of the country’s Sunni minority. Of more than two million Iraqis displaced by the war, the majority are Sunnis. Also at issue is the influence of Iran on the country – Iranian-backed Shiite militias who played a key role in defeating IS and were allied with the Shiite-led Baghdad government made significant electoral gains.
