State of law, Sairoun coalitions in dispute over largest parliamentary bloc


Dispute between State of Law and Sairoun coalitions has escalated over the formation of the Parliament's largest bloc and next government.


State of Law coalition led by Former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has accused Sairoun coalition led by Muqtada al-Sadr of inciting riots for political gains, underlining that it has abandoned dialogue with Sairoun.


The Parliamentary elections was marked by record low turnout. It was the first since Iraq declared victory over the ISIS group and the fourth since the 2003 US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
