New Generation: Most of the Kurdish and Sunni representatives are not present in Parliament

The deputy of the movement of the new generation, Sarkot Shams Al-Din, revealed on Sunday, January 5, 2020, the absence of most of the Kurdish and Sunni representatives from the parliament session for this day, which is devoted to removing the American forces, indicating that the Sunni and Kurdish representatives have different opinions.

Shams Al-Din said in a statement followed by the obelisk that “the Kurdish representatives, most of them boycotted the parliament session today, because they counted their conviction to remove the American forces from Iraq.”

He added that “many Shiite MPs were absent from the session today under the pretexts of travel or sickness and cannot be held legally accountable”, indicating that “the presidency of the parliament will present all the details during today’s session in the event of a quorum and after that an understanding will be reached on a specific legal formula.”

And the source, from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, made a phone call with House Speaker Mohamed Al-Halbousi, during which he requested that the parliament session be held today, which is scheduled to witness a decision against the American military presence.

The Bloc of Babylonians revealed earlier on Sunday that the United States of America exerted pressure on some political parties to prevent the holding of today’s session, which is scheduled to witness taking decisions against the American military presence. Source
