Brett McGurk is expected to hold meetings on May 21 with the representatives of the Change Movement (Gorran), Coalition for Democracy and Justice (CDJ), New Generation, Islamic Group (Komal), and Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) to persuade them to participate in the activities of the Iraqi parliament, the Rudaw media group reported.
According to the election results, Sairun, a populist Iraqi coalition led by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr won the election.
On May 12, parliamentary elections were held in Iraq for the first time since the country was liberated from the Daesh* terrorist group. Following the vote, a number of Kurdish parties rejected the election results and called for a manual recount of ballots. According to the Alsumaria TV channel, the four parties have demanded to hold a new vote in Iraqi Kurdistan.
