Policy 2022-05-23 Alsumaria News – Politics The expert on the Iraqi constitution, Hassan Al-Yasiri, presented today, Monday, a proposal to address the state of the political blockage in the country.

After 2003, and after the failure of all initiatives to resolve this blockage, the following proposal can be placed in the hands of stakeholders and public opinion:
– Parliament’s formation of a transitional (not emergency) government of independents, a president and ministers, from outside the current parliament’s parties and blocs and from those who did not run in the last elections; An increase in impartiality, the duration of which is one year, that assumes the responsibility of preparing for new elections after the end of the year, and easing tension between the parties; Thus, we end the caretaker government with usurped powers on the one hand, and get out of the state of blockage on the other.
The formation of this government does not depend on Article (76/first) of the Constitution; Therefore, it does not require the election of the President of the Republic before it, nor does it require the nomination of the most numerous bloc, but rather the consensus of the parliamentary blocs.
Although the explicit text does not help us, the general legislative mandate of Parliament can be relied upon as a basis for its composition; As long as it is transitional and not permanent; Thus, we get out of the dialectic of the largest mass. The parliamentary blocs pledge to support this government, and not to obstruct it during the specified period of its work.
During this transitional stage, Parliament will move away from enacting entrenched controversial laws, and limit itself to important and urgent agreed-upon laws – as much as possible – especially the general budget law. LINK
