Legal: Abdul Mahdi will face dismissal if he fails to complete the cabinet cabins this month
The legal expert Ali al-Tamimi said on Thursday that Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi will face dismissal and replacement if he fails to complete the cabinet cab at the end of this month, while Abdul-Mahdi failed and exceeded the constitutional terms to complete his cabinet.
“The President of the Republic, Barham Saleh, has the right to replace Abdul Mahdi and his dismissal because he failed to complete the ministerial cabin for more than eight months, ” Tamimi said in a statement to Al-Maaloumah. “Article 76 of the Iraqi constitution stipulates that the elected prime minister is obliged To provide the cabinet cabin within a maximum of thirty days, while Article 77 of the Constitution to allow the President of the Republic to replace the Prime Minister someone else if he failed to complete his cabinet during the constitutional period.
He added that “the survival of four ministries within the current government is incomplete for more than eight months is a government failure and a constitutional violation,” noting that “President Barham Saleh is obliged to replace Abdul Mahdi, if someone fails to pass the remaining ministries during this month.”
And that “the country will enter a new legal problem on the issue of replacement that Abdul Mahdi did not come from a larger bloc, but got the post of prime minister through political consensus between the blocks, as well as the lack of the House of Representatives for the largest bloc so far.”
The parliamentary government monitoring committee indicated earlier that the work of most of the ministers of the current government is unconvincing for the House of Representatives and their ministerial role has not been seriously activated, stressing that the House of Representatives will host a number of ministers during the second legislative term to give them a final deadline before going about Removal.
