BAGHDAD, Iraq – After a failed meeting of lraqi lawmakers, Kurdish and Iraqi political blocs were looking for possible resolutions on Sunday to end the crisis, a Rudaw correspondent reported from Baghdad.
The search for solutions comes after the firebrand Iraqi Shiite leader Moqtada al-Sadr warned Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to establish a technocratic government by Tuesday.
Sadr released a statement on Saturday supporting Iraqi lawmakers in their boycott of the government, calling it a move against discrimination.
He asked lawmakers to continue their action until problems are resolved.
The Iranian-backed leader also called on Iraqi ministers to resign as soon as possible.
According to the statement Sadr wants Abadi to resolve the current political problems and reshuffle his government within 45 days.
