Tehran(KNA) - Iraqi cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose party won the Iraqi parliamentary election, and incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, whose list took the third place, have underlined the need for the formation of a new government as soon as possible.

Sadr and Abadi met in Baghdad on Saturday and held a joint press conference afterwards."During our meeting, we agreed to work together and with other parties to expedite the process of forming a new Iraqi government," Abadi said at the briefing.

"It will be a strong government, capable of providing to its citizens services, security and economic prosperity," he added.

The Shia cleric, for his part, hinted at a coalition government, saying, "Our door is open to anyone as long as they want to build the nation, and that it be an Iraqi decision."
