The Federal Court announced the legitimacy of the third amendment to the election law voted by Parliament. Salim Shawqi was stated as saying, “The decision of the Federal Court was expected, but the results of the elections will not have a major significance.” PM Abadi is “expected” to immediately commence the arrest of the crooked politicians who lost their seats on July 1, 2018.
He is also expected to start an investigation seeking those responsible for the fall of Mosul as previously requested by Sadr. Implementation of the economic reforms is expected immediately following the placement of the new Parliament members. Citizens have been in a two-week awareness campaign of the new changes by posting lower denoms on the billboards for all to see.
