An Iraqi political party, linked to a powerful militia, has announced plans to run in the country’s general elections for the first time while calling for the withdrawal of US troops.

The Huqooq Movement is the political wing of Kataib Hezbollah, the most high-profile Iran-backed militia in Iraq. They have been accused of targeting protesters during the October 2019 demonstrations.

“We are not radicals, instead, we’ve identified a problem and are seeking to restore rights through political means under the umbrella of the constitution,” Hussein Mounis, the party’s leader said during a press conference to announce their electoral programme.

Mr Mounes, who also used to go by the name of Abu Ali Al Askari, was the spokesman for Kataib Hezbollah.

He said the party has “the ability to achieve” its goals, which includes political and economic demands “with which we’ve defended the homeland and expelled anyone who wanted evil for this country.”
