Abadi coalition makes contradicted statements on next govt.

Candidates plan to pay IQD 50,000 as bribe for voters in elections – MP
Victory of Iraq Coalition, headed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, said on Sunday the coming government will be formed based on understandings that will be reached among different political forces.
The remarks come after 24 hours of a statement by the coalition in which it asserted Abadi will form the next government.
Spokesman for the coalition Hussein Darwish said tallies indicate the premier has a vast majority supporting him, asserting Abadi's coalition will be in the lead in the coming elections.
Forming the next government is left to the compromise and understandings among politicians, he said.
Commentators blasted remarks of Abadi coalition, saying they are contradicted, accusing it of seeking to hijack the political arena.
This comes as National Wisdom Movement, chaired by Ammar al-Hakim, said it will engage in only coalitions that seek majority in the coming elections.
