Kurdish MPs Boycott Iraqi Parliament’s Saturday Session
The Kurdish factions in the Iraqi parliament boycotted a session on Saturday over excluding the Kurdish representatives from a federal court.
A source confirmed that the Kurdish lawmakers were concerned by having no representatives at the Iraqi Federal Appeal Court voted by the legislative.
“We nominated judges from Kirkuk and Nineveh, but they were excluded,” MP Vian Sabri said.
The parliament, however, approved five judges to the Federal Appeal Court. The Kurds continue to struggle to obtain an inclusion in the Iraqi judiciary. Source
