We reject parliament’s term extension: National Wisdom Movement

National Wisdom Movement’s spokesperson, Nofal Abu Raghef said on Monday that the movement rejects the extension of the parliament’s term, which is supposed to end on June 30.

Abu Raghef called on political blocs to work together in order to form a strong government that serves the Iraqi people, pointing out that Iraq is witnessing a “sensitive” political situation.

He added that the movement rejects all parliament’s attempt to extend its term as it is contradicting the Iraqi constitution that states that “the electoral term of the Council of Representatives shall be limited to four calendar years, starting with its first session and ending with the conclusion of the fourth year”. Source
