The country is witnessing a political crisis that some observers emphasize that it is on the rise in the unity of the differences between the political blocs, having transformed from a difference between the Iraqi List and the rule of law to the difference in the latter with the Kurdistan Alliance and the Sadr movement and other movements and parties.
