The political system in Iraq is completely 'corrupt', Leader of the Sadrist Movement Muqtada al-Sadr said on Friday.

Speaking in a television interview, al-Sadr said his bloc will go on with its reform program, which focuses on increasing awareness among the Iraqi people about the danger of corruption.
