The leader of the Sadrist movement, Moqtada al-Sadr, is no longer an "enemy" of the United States but not an easy partner, the AtlanticCancell website reported on Thursday, adding that low turnout helped Sadr get more seats than expected.

"If Sadr and Abbadi join the ruling coalition, he will give Iraq a reformist and political government that could be more resistant to Iranian influence, and this is one of the other factors that gives the US a sufficient reason to support such an alliance," the website said in a report by Sky Press .

Sadr is not an easy partner for the Americans, but at the same time is no longer an enemy, an Iraqi national figure has become more pragmatic before. "

"Low voter turnout has helped Sadr get more seats than expected. He has a more unifying base of other parties and better grassroots organizations that helped mobilize his base during the vote.

In contrast, Sadr has been able to strengthen support by responding to popular demands, The populist rhetoric, which appealed to its base and the growing feelings against the institution of government and the fight against corruption in them. "

"The formation of the Iraqi government now depends on the parties that form an alliance that can have the largest number of seats in parliament. This may be the coalition that won the largest number of seats or a new coalition that appeared before the first session of parliament.

It may take more than a month for the results to be ratified by the federal court. "
