🇮🇶 What will it take for Iraq’s government to work? | The Stream

In Iraq, more political deadlock could be ahead after supporters of Iraqi cleric Muqtada al-Sadr stormed parliament once again to block rival Shias from forming the country’s next government.

For the second time in a week, followers of al-Sadr broke into Baghdad’s high-security green zone on Saturday and began a sit-in demonstration in and around the parliament building. Demonstrators are calling for early elections, amendments to the constitution, and restricting Iranian influence in domestic politics. Counter protests by Iran-backed groups are also raising the risk of violence.
