Al-Sadr is the leader of both Saraya al Salam, a military wing of the Shi'ite militia, and his own political party, the "Sadrist Movement", creating a coalition under the name of the Sa'irun Alliance - a coalition between his Shi'ite movement, the Iraqi Communist Party and mostly secular groups.
Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi came in first in Iraq's second largest province, Nineveh, but he has performed poorly in the rest of the country, coming in third and fourth place in most provinces and fifth in Baghdad.
