The Unity Alliance of Iraq (Arabic: ائتلاف وحدة العراق I’itilaf Wehdat al-Iraq) commonly known as Iraq's Unity, Iraqi Unity or Wassat is an Iraqi political coalition formed to contest the Iraqi parliamentary election, 2010. The coalition was formed by Sheikh Ahmed Abu Risha, the head of the Awakening movement, a Sunni tribal militia which was successful in significantly reducing the insurgency in al-Anbar Governorate and was then reformed into a political party, the Iraq Awakening and Independents National Alliance, which won the most seats in the Al Anbar governorate election, 2009.[1][2] The Awakening Alliance joined forces with Iraq's Shi'a interior minister Jawad al-Bolani and his secular Iraqi Constitutional Party and Ahmed Abdul Ghafour al-Samarrai's Sunni Endowment. The list is led by Jawad al-Bolani.[3]
